Surgery Update

Well, I survived the liquid diet... Even through Thanksgiving....
The day of the surgery was soooo hectic.. I had to get up at 0330, to get the gremlins ready and dropped off to my mom... once that was accomplished... (might I add that this has been the hardest thing I have EVER had to do in my life... willingly leave my girls in the care of someone else...) I cried myself sick... all the way to the hospital.. Once there, we realize we are in the wrong spot... lol.. finally after walking through most of the hospital, we found were we had to be... dum dum duuuuummmm... checked in and ready to go... last thing I remember was saying good bye to my husband, and scooting onto the table.. and that's it...

BUT when I awoke... Holy Heck... they had a hard time waking me up, so by the time I came too, all pain meds had worn off... YES... full blown PAIN... once we caught up a little on the pain meds it wasn't toooo bad.. except the nurses couldn't figure out why I had such high blood pressure and heart rate... oh well... If my Doc isn't worried neither will I be...

did I mention I lost a total of 13lbs on the 1 week liquid diet?? so, I'm dozing as I write... will update more later...

Pre-OP

Today is my 14 yr anniversary.... wooo hooo, and my Pre-op appointment... I've made up my mind to have weight loss surgery.. I have been plagued with this weight and no matter how hard I try or what I do, I can't loose the weight.. I'm an addict, and there is NO cure..

The appointment went well, I'm nervous, it's becoming more real...
Had to sign tons of forms, and was informed I will begin a liquid diet one week out.... so, Monday the 23rd...
I have already ordered my meds, and protein just didn't think I'd be starting a week ahead... I am an addict, and his should be fun...

All liquid all the time...
I will be doing my prep shopping tomorrow.. and doing a TON of cooking this weekend so I can leave the fridge stocked for the family, since I think cooking would be TORTURE....
