So, my doctor does all his surgery's on Wednesday's. He has "classes" of band recipients. 1 week and a half before your surgery, it is Pre-Op day. Tomorrow is that day for me. So I'm heading to bed now, and fasting in the am before heading to the hospital. Check in at 7:45 and then I will do my EKG, blood work and barium swallow. Apparently there are 8 of us getting banded on the 23rd. We all will be traveling around the hospital in a pack tomorrow getting all the tests done. I think this is partly convenience and partly for a built in support group :-) I'm kind of excited about meeting the rest of them, but let me tell you - I'm actually super nervous about the barium swallow. I'm a super gagger when it comes to certain textures and really can't hold down any liquid meds... YUCK! I'm hoping I don't puke.... Send out some positive vibes for me tomorrow!
Since I am actually only 10 days out, I've officially started stockpiling the "stuff" - you know, the stuff that is listed on every forum. Here's what I came home to today.
Yep, I'm addicted to internet shopping... It is just so easy! That is three amazon boxes, a box of samples from unjury and some shampoo / conditioner I ordered. It's like Christmas at my house!
