I Need Some Pretties

I'm having a rough time with my recovery - feeling very queasy and sick. I know I did this to myself but I can only hope that it will get better.

Since I'm feeling like total crap, I thought we could use some pretties to brighten our weekend.

Today's pretties: Closets

Lapband Update: Post-Op Day 1/NUMBERS!

I did it. I am now the proud new owner of a Lap-Band.

Lemme give you my numbers:

1. Pre-op Gallbladder Weight: 288lbs

2. Pre-op Lap-band Weight: 275.5

No, I am not thrilled to share these numbers with you but ..well what the heck, I would just rather everyone know. But I AM glad that I lost nearly 13lbs since my gallbladder surgery!

Okay so here is my experience so far:

1. Lots of pain issues in recovery. I was supposed to be there an hour but ended up being there for three hours. Yikes! A nurse told me "All that crying isn't going to make you feel better!"

Bitch. It DID make me feel better.

2. Morphine pump is an invention of the gods.

3. Having bilateral leg ultrasounds in front of a class of future sonographers can only be accomplished when on said morphine pump. For your reference they start in your groin.

4. Said pain meds will make you cry at about anything.

5. Hiccups are now a part of my new life.

Lapband Update: Approved!!

Finally! After months of doctors visits and jumping through hoops I got a call from my surgeon's office on Thursday saying they had sent my information to BCBS for approval for lapband. Since it usually takes a week I was shocked on Friday to get a message that I had already been approved!

This is exciting but also scary because it means this is really happening. All I have left is to have a results visit at the surgeon's office and schedule surgery! Hopefully within the next few weeks.

Now I have to stock up on lots of stuff so that I can be prepared...getting meds changed to liquids, buying protein and liquids for the first couple weeks post op. Yikes! Reality!
