My insurance approved the surgery Monday morning, I had my preadmission testing done today and I check in tomorrow morning at 9:30. The past few days have been a whirlwind of activity and shopping. Hubby is taking the rest of the week off to take care of me so if I forgot anything, he'll be able to run out. After doing the dumb preop diet for the last couple weeks (UGH), I'm down about 4 lbs and was convinced it was all for nought but the awesome nurse at the doc's office had reserved my spot. I'm excited and nervous! I've gone through this surgery stuff before with the band and the hysterectomy so it's not surgery so much as the recovery and ultimately, the weight loss. Part of me still thinks this is all hopeless, but the other part of me is full of hope and that's the part I'm listening to.
See you on the other side, my friends.
