Well, last Monday I went for all of my pre-op stuff. It was a long day but nothing too terrible. The worst part was the super long line at the lab to get my blood drawn. During my doctor's appointment, my case worker was surprised that I didn't have many questions. I feel that I have done so much research on Lap-Band that I could teach her a thing or two!!!
I still have 24 hours to gorge myself - I do not start my liquid diet until Wednesday. I know a lot people have to go on liquids up to two weeks before surgery. I guess it just depends on the surgeon and the patient. I only have to do 24 hours of liquids =) I plan on going out to eat Mexican food tomorrow night as a "last meal."
I am not dreading anything about my surgery - except the moments before I go into the OR. I've never had surgery before so this is going to be a new experience for me. I was hoping that I would not have to stay overnight, but it looks as though my insurance is requiring me to!!! This poses two dilemmas: having to be away from my babies for a night AND the question: do I bring Snott - my dilapidated baby doll that I have slept with since I was a baby. Chris thinks it would be super embarrassing for a nearly 30 year old woman to bring a baby to the hospital...I think she may stow away in my suitcase - Just in Case!!!!
72 hours from now I will officially begin my new life!!! I can't wait!!!!
