Here we go!

It is now 5pm and I am not to eat anything else tonight.  It is the night before my Lap Band Surgery!  I am super excited which is strange cause I know I will be very uncomfortable and all but I am happy to be at this point.
I am waiting anxiously for my husband to get home so I can rush him into the shower so we can hit the road to San Diego.  Much better idea to stay the night then to have to wake up and be on the road at 3am.  I am still scheduled to be the first surgery of the day.  I asked the nurse if Dr. Callery drank coffee.  Half joking of course but I hope he is a morning person  ~insert nervous giggle~ I will be at hospital at 5:30 am. 

We are staying an extra night at room like Im sure I mentioned before cause we are going to pick up my  mom and then come home.  I will admit it here that I have mixed emotions about my mom coming home.  I dont want to sound like a bad daughter but if you've lived with another adult woman its not easy.  I just need to set boundaries.  For instance, when my mom was well and she did some cleaning and such around the house she would clean my shower and/or wash my clothes.  I would always ask her why and she would argue with me `stubborn German~ but seriously I need to tell her that MY space is My space and she needs to NOT touch it.  There is plenty to do besides that.  Anyways, you know what I mean.  I really dont know what all she will be capable of doing anyway so we shall see.
I will try and post when I get back.
Oh and I would love some suggestions on clear liquids or creamy liquids.  I have a few but let me know what you all had.  I will ask about soft foods when I get to that.  I really have been away from forums so I forgot what was said.
Ok, I better go check my bags again and be off.  Yay!


  1. How exciting!! I'll be thinking about you tomorrow! My banding is coming up 8/10 and I'm so nervous. Can't wait to here how it goes for you. Keep us updated! (((Hugs)))!!

  2. I hope your surgery and recovery are easy!

  3. so exciting! I can't wait to see your post-op update!

    I drank alot of protein shakes and fat free pudding and spicy chicken broth.

  4. Clear liquids are black coffee and tea, water, juices you can see through and broth. Full liquids include protein drinks, milk, all juices, etc. Most people don't have much appetite until several days post-op.

    See you on the "other side"! I've been following you for awhile and I'm so glad the big day is finally here!
