    Thank you.
  2. I'm doing well. One more day until mashed food! Yesterday I overdid the dairy and found I may now be lactose sensitive. Live & learn.

    Yay you are home! Glad to hear that things went well. I did get an appointment the last Monday of this month with the surgeon, and then they can submit to insurance. I also got a snippy reply from my patient advocate about it. I am going to write a snippy email of my own once all is done, but until then I remain hopeful that I will still be a December sleever. If not, January will be ok. Let us know how you are doing!

    Yayyyyyyyyyy, you did it :-)
    Sleeping in hospital sucks! Keep us updated xxxx
  6. Thanks so much. It went well & really no pain so far except the pressure from the gas. First pain meds 8 hours after surgery & that was only bc I had some stomach cramping but nothing serious. They put something in during surgery to control the pain & it seems to really work. Have been up & walking quite a bit. They ran out of hospital rooms so I've spent the entire day in the noisy recovery room. I'm tired but no sleeping in this place.
    Thanks for all your good wishes!

    Your son will be an hour behind me :-) Try to get some sleep, and update when you can xx
  10. Stacey, depending on where you are in Australia, you may be on the same time zone as my son in Korea. I have 14 more hours before I leave for the hospital, but who's counting. : ) Thanks so much!!

    Day 5 was the day I felt I turned the corner. Your son won't notice. Pop a bit of extra blush on your cheeks :-) You might be on your way now, not sure with crazy time differences but lots of love xxx
  12. So grateful for you, Stacey. Super helpful to know the timeline--my son comes home for a visit from Korea day 5 after surgery. (I haven't told him--Lord knows he has plenty to worry about! He's a lawyer in the Army.) Glad to know I'll be semi-normal by then. Yep, bag is packed and repacked. Husband has plotted the map (I'm going to a hospital 1+hours from my home.) I'm ready. Just have to get through a day of liquids and then I'm off early tomorrow morning. Keep the updates coming....

    It's tommorrow right?! Are you packed? Just a quick update, day 6 and i am feeling a million dollars, I'm just going to go for a walk. No more pain relief and I only ever had like 10 mins of nausea, once! Much more energy today. Day 3 and 4 might be a bit blahhhh but remember this is to be expected and very very temporary. Be nice to yourself on those days, rest and naps and love from the hubby. Maybe mention that they might be a little bit tough for you and tell him you appreciate him in advance!(PS. It is not awful, you will just be tired and just worn out from the op, this is normal).
    Tke your pain relief regulary and on time ( this is the nurse in me coming out) you don't want peaks and troughs, you just want it all nice and steady.
    You will do fine with the sipping and you will feel like it is your job, but you will manage it fine. Remember I'm barracking for you and sending lots of love. Please update us and come for lots of support xxxxxx
  14. Thanks so much, Stacey! It's been so helpful to have your updates. Keep letting us know how it goes. Glad you've done so well.
