Pre-Op Jitters...


Not of the surgery itself... but I'm so anxious to be successful with my new friend the Lap-Band, that I'm nervous I will fail. 

Makes absa-tute-ly no sense huh?

Anyway. I leave bright and early in the morning to have all of the pre-op tests done. Physical exam, ultrasound, lab tests, chest x-ray, EKG, lung function test, and an endoscopy. Totally the most fun I can even imagine to have scheduled on a wonderful day like Thursday! 

If your new to sarcasm, follow my blog for a week, and you'll be a pro in no time.

Friday is surgery day!! =0 Ahhh!!! Pretty excited! 

The only thing I am not looking forward to about this hospital stay, is that my husband won't be staying with me. He has to stay at home with our 14 month old. She'd be a little crazy in a hospital for 3-5 days. Not to mention it'd be boring for her! Gosh, it's gonna be boring for me! I'm hoping that I'll sleep non-stop until they discharge me. A room with no internet, and the only English speaking channel is CNN...

This weekend is going to be STELLAR!!!!

So, needless to say, I won't be able to update my blog for DAYS! I don't know what I'm going to do!! Will you survive without me? Hope so. Gonna need you when I get home! 

I plan to have one last visit with you all tomorrow morning, give my "final pre-op weigh in" and body shot that I promised a few days ago. I'm excited to see what the that sweet scale says in the morning. 


  1. I wish you good luck tomorrow with all your tests! I'm sure the nurse will be calling me sometime on Friday to set up all of my tests! Two weeks tomorrow, my life with change too!! I'm excited to find someone losing their "virginity" around the same time that I am!! You be Forrest and I'll be Bubba! (I'm from the country and I LOVE his big bottom lip!!) I can't wait to see the first post-op-post from you! Good luck and hugs from me to you!!

  2. Hi Kelly...I just found your blog, and wanted to wish you well in your Surgery on Friday!! I will be thinking of you all day. I am your newest Follower, but I wanted to be your 13th not your 11th!! Let us know when you can that you are home and all is well....
