I tried tagging my surgeon Dr Pablo Fok Russell. He's not in the list.
Im currently waiting to be wheeled to surgery.
I'm so far extremely impressed. I lost a lot more weight then expected on my pre-op diet. I was allowed salad with a Protein choice, 13 almonds and Protein Shakes.
Everyone is very friendly. I had an EKG, bloodwork & xray done as soon as I arrived. The bloodwork was back in an hour! I met everyone. I like everyone.
Two women on my flight rode with me here. They are getting some sort of plastic surgery. One already had a facelift already. Looked good too! I liked riding with people who were familiar. The driver was really informative.
Now I'm waiting to be wheeled back!

All is well. Very attentive. Everyone works as a team. The Dr has came to see me a few times. I have no complaints at all.

Update

Im so impressed with the care I received. I have no negative comments at all.
I have been walking. I have a headache that I'm uncertain if it's related , i get them often. No other discomfort.
Every employee is amazing. I would forget to walk & I was gently reminded.
I am very happy with my decision.
The building is beautiful. I don't have pictures because I took a video.

I took a few pictures . Only one of my room. I was taking videos. I didn't think of pictures until after I left.

They are of my hotel. Absolutely gorgeous. Room service has my menu.
Everything's set up for me. I have a picture of my driver & his car & license number for the morning ride to the airport.

      I'm checked into the hotel near the hospital and just had my last protein shake of the day. My mom has kindly gone down to the restaurant alone so as not to make me die from watching her eat dinner. Checking in at the hospital tomorrow at 10:50am. So ready!

      Six months pots-op as of yesterday. I celebrated with a HIIT class where I was challenged to do a wall-assisted handstand. I truly thought there's no way in hell that I can get up there. Well... I proved myself wrong. The instructor said, "Just try getting one foot up there." I tried and it was so easy, that the other foot went up, and the next thing that I knew, I was standing on my hands with my legs up in the air, leaning against the wall.
      Last weekend I challenged myself to a 10-mile hike, and I was SURE that my legs would be non-functional that night and the next day. But that didn't happen at all.  But I did learn that I need a new hiking boot or shoe. I've got a goal of walking the Portuguese coastal route of the El Camino later this year, and I good shoes will be essential.
      I've hit another weight loss stall, but that's to be expected. I am so close to my goal already that if it does take 6 more months to get that last stone off, that's okay with me. And I am building muscle, so that stone may never move. S'alright friends, s'alright.
