Surgery Tomorrow

Tomorrow's the big day.  Surgery is at 7:30 so I have to be there by 6 to do some preop testing and stuff.  Starting to get pretty nervous about the whole thing.   I'm not too nervous about the surgery itself as I feel I have one of the best surgeons in the state doing the procedure.  It's more the after-surgery stuff like pain, recovery, a month of liquids and whether or not it will work in the end.  I've never been a very good dieter so there is a fear out there that I'll somehow fail with the band just like I have all the times before.  I'm pushing those thoughts out for now.  My mom gave me her official "I think you should reconsider" speech a couple days ago but I knew that was coming... was just surprised that it took this long.  I think I'm all stocked up on everything I need so not too many worries there.  My hubby took tomorrow, Thursday and Friday off so that he can stay with me which will be nice.  I'll probably check in Thursday and let y'all know how it went.  Wish me luck!

Great News! You are in good hands and the surgi-center is amazing. Remember to walk as much as you can in the hospital after surgery! Best wishes! Fellow Phoenician
