Yay I rather be safe then sorry... I don't think I will be waring the same thing home; due to the fact that what I am waring to the hospital is tight fit-it pants and what I am waring home that outfit is much looser... I don't want to irritate my incision.

My date is the 16th, so wish me luck and blessing

I also wore the same thing home that I wore there. Loose and comfortable. You will need to wear the hospital gown in order to allow for iv and monitoring equipment and they put socks with slip free bottoms on you prior to surgery. The socks were great to walk in because I sure didnt want to bother with getting into shoes. When walking around the floor, they gave me an extra gown I wore backwards so nothing was hanging out. You really dont need much.

Where's the tequila and limes ?????

Just kidding.

I wasn't allowed to wear anything but their no-slip socks as far as footwear was concerned.

Most important things I took:

Pillow for ride home.....hold against abdomen and relax.

Post op pain med prescription filled for the ride home.

iPhone loaded with an iBook, iTunes and my earbuds.

Anker remote battery for easy recharges and no need to reach for a wall outlet...able to keep everything on my rolling table.

Gas-X strips were taken but never used.

Like I said before to each is own... This is my journey I am entitled to make the same mistakes as you to did. Thanks for your opinions but, I am still taking my things.

Once again you can send as many wishes and prayers and I heard one person opinion don't need to keep hearing the same thing over and over again.

Thank for your response, but it gets a little redundant. I appreciate what was said but like I said thank for your opinion. But I don't need to keep hearing it... Now I have to add your opinion to something that wasn't directed towards you... Until now

It looks like you're a great planner, kudos to that.

And I'll chalk up your sensitivity to other opinions to be just a side effect of the pre-op diet.

Good luck, I hope everything goes smoothly for you.

What I don't understand is that it's okay to tell me what I would or should bring and nine times out of ten every one took what they chose to take... My life and my journey. I really like this website because it gives everyone the chance to be proud about get what ever type of procure and ask advice when need.... If any one have ever read my post in the past when I ask for advice I'll ask... I am not about to allow unnecessary comments get to me. Just please be aware I am human and my right to anyone opinion should be expected the same way you want me to accept yours.

I am not going to keep hearing people indicate what I should or shouldn't bring when I expressed I did want to hear it... Instead people want to write what they brought to hospital... On this one I just wanted to hear you are prepared... Take my feeling into consideration not just everyone opinion.

You do realize that when you post on here you are essentially asking for thoughts and feedback, right?

If you don't want thoughts and feedback, then post the picture on Pinterest.

NO ONE was even remotely trying to be offensive or insensitive to you. At all.

Wishing you all the best with your hospital stay and your wl journey.

      Hide and Seek? No....   If you have noticed, it’s been a little bit of stretch between posts. It’s not because I am not interested in blogging. I absolutely love sharing my journey with you.   You see, my world has changed! I now exercise every single morning with a 3 to 4-mile walk. I also now meal prep so I don’t fall into old habits.   I am also a bit hooked on closing my Apple Watch Fitness Rings! In fact, I am obsessed with doubling and tripling most of them.   So this does take up a lot of time and by the time you add work into the mix and family time, it becomes a shorter day.   Priorities are in order for me and I could not be happier.   So in the last week, I’ve been hitting goals that I never thought I would be able to hit again. I weigh myself on Sunday’s now. It’s just easier to do before I get dressed for church. It just feels good. I refuse to constantly get on the scale when I see everyday victories. Like getting back into clothes I never thought I could, or taking the time to just breathe and be grateful for the blessings I have in my life right now.   Continued on www.SabrinaGoddess.com

      6 Weeks Post Op!

      My world is drastically different! I now walk 3 to 4 miles a day and I’m constantly getting up to move my body! .

      I close my Apple Watch rings daily and about 4 to 6 days a week I double or triple them!

      I have been released to have all foods. When I reintroduce some I need to start at 1 ounce to see how “Tiny Tummy” likes it!

      I am not reintroducing sugars, coffee or junk! I did not pay close to $13,000 to fail! .

      I went to get follow up bloodwork done this week and my numbers are all in the perfect range! .

      This is my new world and I am happy it!

        I didn’t see it either but I wish I had now for both the battle on court & the ball tampering accusations flying around everywhere now.
