  2. surgery is over!!

    Well my cousin and I made it to Mexico and home!! Overall it was a good experience!! The hospital is nice and clean although small. The doctor and nurses were all very nice and professional.

I am finding myself a little annoyed when people tell me how proud they are of me for sticking to my pre-op diet and following through with all of the requirements for my surgery. I want to think they mean well, but I can’t help but hear this little voice in the back of my head that says, “Like I am going through ...
