Received the call from my PS surgeon today. My surgery time is at 10am next Thursday, Dec. 27th!! Can't beleive this is really happening. I can't focus on anything but my surgery. Called and confirmed all my life insurance amounts today and talked with my daughter; she is 19 years old. It's just her and I. I realize nothing is going to happen, but it's important to be prepared. Went to the store and picked up several things that I need for my surgery. This lists on this site are great! I really want to blog while I am recovering. It's helped me so much as I have been preparing and want to give back. The thought of having firm, big boobs, a tight tummy and thinner thighs is almost more than I can imagine. I was in a very bad car accident in 2007 and off work for almost a year. I was in ICU for almost 3 weeks. I gained about 80lbs. I had already been about 40lbs overweight so this didn't help. I have since lost almost 130lbs and finally feel like I am getting my life back. This will be the icing on the cake. :)

Congrats!!! So exciting, yet anxious too. I was the same - got the will made up, double checked insurance and all. Things can happen! Though with all the ladies here telling their stories, instead of freaking out about the invasiveness of my surgery, I thought of it more like getting tonsils out. :). I had TT, BL, and lipo 12/17, so just a week out. :)

Woo-hoo! You got your date. I'm very excited for you.

It'd be great if you'd start your story in the review community (even before surgery). That way you can post updates (and photos if you so desire).

Go here to do that when you're ready: http://www.realself.com/review/create?topic_id=98912

Looking forward to reading more about your journey!
