Well, tomorrow at 7 am is the "big day". I'm a bit disappointed that none of my family has come home before now (it's 9:33 PM) as I have to be at the hospital by 5 AM. :( :(

My eldest daughter flies back to PA tomorrow (mid-day) and originally she was coming with my husband & I to the hospital and then hopefully I would get to recovery before he had to drive her to the airport.

Youngest daughter was going to join us @ the hospital closer to my surgery time.

My husband called and announced that they have made things "much easier" (not his specific wording but the gist)..and that youngest daughter is going to pick up eldest and drive her to the airport so "they don't have to get up so early" and then..after youngest has dropped her off..she will stop by on her way to work.

I am realizing now I'm actually VERY hurt by this. When my parents were alive, we made sure for any major surgery to be there with them no matter WHAT time the surgery was. To make sure we could see them before they went back.

I am...stunningly hurt by this and I'm just now realizing it. My husband and eldest are out drinking beer..they said they'd be home early..but it's almost 10 PM and I need to be up by at least 4:15 AM.

I have been patient and understanding and ALONE most nights as everyone goes and does the usual 'food socialization'. My eldest doesn't get good Tex-Mex where she lives so this was a long standing tradition. I HONESTLY don't begrudge them that..but what is a SCARY and very important day for me...it's like my husband is only showing up as he HAS to be there.

I don't understand my kids..I really don't. You could not have paid me any amount of money to not be by my parent's side...both of them. And I always was.

I don't even have my parents left to be there with me..I know many do not. But I am very disappointed and I feel very very alone.

Sorry, am not handling this well. To everyone else still upcoming in Week 4, I wish all of you the very best!

I know you've been through a lot of trials and tribulations on your long journey to this day. I wish the best for you and hope you have a speedy recovery Karen 🤗

Hi yall! Its post op day 3 for me. My surgery went well with no complications and no additional fixes needed. I stayed in the hospital two days. The second day was mostly at my request since I live almost 2 hours away and couldn't drink much.
I kept having the so full of Water feeling like you'd burst since I got out of surgery. Seemed like a lot of the pain I felt was from gases stuck by my ribs. It was very painful and would come in waves. But they kept me comfortable with pain meds when I requested it.

Last night out of no where my mouth started watering bad like before you throw up and before that it was so dry. It felt like whatever that watery episode was cleared my way of left over gases and I could finally drink more then an oz in 4hrs. I've gotten my oz's up today and drank one 11oz Protein Shake.

Im slowly trying to build up. I'm not sure how much I'm suppose to drink in one sitting at the hospital it was no more then 5oz in an hr. Now that I'm home is it the same or am I allowed more... I forgot to ask the doc. I just dont wanna hurt myself or overfill my stomach. Anywho hope everyone else is doing well!

Just wanted to update everyone! I had my surgery on 7/24! I was supposed to only have an overnight stay, but I couldn’t keep anything down all day Thursday, so I earned an extra day. I was discharged today, and I still have some gas pain. Just trying to walk and sip. Prayers for everyone who still has procedures this month!

      I met with my surgeon on Friday.. I've completed all my tests and all my nutrition meetings as well as meeting the weight loss requirements for my insurance. We are officially submitting to insurance for approval and I was given a surgery date of January 16th 2020 (13 days before my birthday!) Fingers crossed all goes through

      Ok, now im getting old...my body gets me up at my normal 5am dog walk even when it's the weekend, vacation, and most importantly when I'm sick. So now that I have more energy, my body wants to make sure I suffer even longer during the day when I have a cold! Damn being healthy again! (:D)

      At my Primary Physician appt, the Doc said you know you lost a whole person. When you started seeing me you were 265lbs now you're 148lbs.
      She's right... I lost the fun me 😂 Joking Joking Joking. It's amazing who keeps track when you don't like insurance and browsers feeds
