2 day countdown! Have to sign in at the hospital at 5:30 am on Monday morning. (All you other 3/11 people, don't forget Daylight Savings goes into effect this weekend!)

Nervous but ready.

I am so sorry to hear you had to deal with these issues. You have been so positive and worked so hard...just please know you will get past this and be better than ever!!! Holding in prayer!

Thanks to all of your for your encouraging words and support. They repaired the leak on Wednesday (at 10:00 in the evening!), took the drains out this morning, and the infection has cleared up--so I finally got to go home today! I can't tell you how wonderful it will be to take a real shower and sleep in my own bed.

Needless to say, it has been a very rough and discouraging week. Apparently, I am today basically where I would have been last Tuesday if there had been no complications and they had discharged me the day after surgery as planned. I'm feeling surprisingly good aside from being completely wiped out--I'm napping every couple of hours. I have minimal pain and have not needed pain meds, no nausea, and I have not dumped (yet). So, I just need to pick myself up and get on with it and put this week out of my head.

All of your posts really did help, even though I wasn't in the mood to respond during the week. Thanks again!

Hope everyone who had surgery today’ (8th) is doing good! So far so good! So far so good for me, just a little pain, like I’ve done 3,000 sit ups, haha and I’ve had lots of naps today and made several laps around the nurses station .

Wishing everyone a speedy recovery! 😊😊

RYGB done yesterday. Everything went well. I took a lot of naps yesterday but was able to get a couple of walks in. Dr. Just came in and said it looks as if I will get there go home this afternoon. Now if this snow storm that is supposed to hit holds off.

I just got home yesterday from my March 7 surgery. Everything went well, no issues. Took me until today to finally fart, which had me worried. I’m incredibly thankful I didn’t run into any problems. I did not tell my family about my surgery, so having it go smoothly was a godsend for many reasons! I’ve pretty much just been sleeping, which I don’t think is unusual... I don’t have an appetite for food, but I am thankful for popsicles (I like being able to chew a bit!).

i hope everyone else has had a safe surgery so far! ❤️

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.
