Considering the fact that I've been pondering this surgery for a really long time, it sure does seem like things are moving FAST!
At about this time next Tuesday, I'll be waking up in a recovery room with a new teeny tiny tummy.
I'm full of butterflies!
I want to thank all my friends and family who have been extremely supportive of my decision. You guys are all awesome. I love you all and appreciate your support. This part of my journey is only just beginning and it's good to know I have a huge team of cheerleaders behind me.
I also want to thank the few of you that were worried or concerned or even told me this is not what I should do. I know that you care about me and want me to be safe and healthy. I love you guys too! Please know that I took your words to heart, but in the end I am making my decision based upon my own knowledge of my own body, advice from multiple doctors, and with the support and approval of my husband, children, and parents.
My pre-op diet has been going well. I've lost about six pounds so far. (Hopefully, it's mostly from my liver!) It would be great to drop another 4 or so before surgery.
You know what? I think I'm MOSTLY excited!! I think my ASS is mostly afraid! :)
