Well I can't believe it's done I can't believe it. The surgery was pretty routine quite a few people at the hospital remembered me from my previous stays. They were able to get my i.v. on the first try without calling in specialists, my surgeon was a little late getting in, I was his first of the day scheduled at 7:30am but I had to arrive at the hospital at 5:45a.m. My mom wondered why so early and I say if you are starving yourself why pick a later appointment, I want to get in and get it over with.
Anyway all went well, but I must say that I had more pain this time then with the previous surgeries and I wanted to post so bad but I was getting really nauseous (I think it was from the morphine) and when I wasn't nauseous I could barely keep my eyes open, but I wanted to at least let you guys know it was a done deal. My mom told me that when my surgeon came out to talk to her he gave her the box that my band came in so she could "prove to Mimi that she got the band"
Today I have been sipping on protein drinks and apple juice, I tried to eat some sugarfree jello but I couldn't deal with the taste and threw it away. Tomorrow I will add some broth and some popsicles to the repertoire lol. I have to be on all liquids for the next 4 days then I move to soft foods. I know I didn't consume enough today and I've been getting something like hunger pangs but in a weird way.
It's funny to me though how I was so anxious to give you guys and update more than I was really worried about giving friends and family an update. Thanks for all the encouragement as I start this new phase of the this journey...now I want to come up with a name.....hmmm maybe "Sasha Fierce" a la Beyonce.
Happy Ninth Bandiversary to Me!
