    Hey there. Sorry I never saw your messages on here until now.. Well when I headed to the airport for my flight got through the border very fast so was arriving at the airport about 3 hours before my flight and then got a message that my flight was delayed 4.5 hours. UGH.. I did get home okay though.. How are you doing? The first 2 weeks are really a bear aren't they? I have been having a real hard time with protein shakes. My body just doesn't want to keep them down.. I have bought and tried about 10 different kinds. I did just eat my first scrambled egg this morning and tolerated it very well.

    Hey there, I did get the gas x strips. I don't think you could do chewable at that point. I have only ever seen mint, sorry. I didn't buy a sippy cup. Some people can only do tiny sips at first and you want to do that and make sure to start but I actually could drink almost normal sips. I did bring a heating pad and I did use it. I would take one. I had a fairly long cord so I didn't need the extra extension cord I brought.your water! did you bring a heating pad? You really don't need a lot of clothes but do take extra underwear. As far as sleeping, they don't wake you up to walk but I didn't sleep well that night because I was by a window and it was noisy outside almost all night long. Take a little money for shopping at couple of local stores on the day before you go home. And don't pay what they say at first, make an offer. Let me know if I can answer anything else for you. By the way, there were ten of us on the same day and only 4 had someone with them. I did but he didn't have to really do anything medically for me. The nurses will take care of all that for you even back at the hotel. It is different but quite effective. Just be prepared for nothing being like the US really.

    Don't be nervous. I just got back from Tj last week. My surgery was last Monday. Be prepared for it to be different from what you're used to in the US but effective just the same. The first three days aren't easy, I won't lie. But just walk, walk and walk as you able and do exactly what they say and you will be fine. Each day is getting easier. Best wishes!
