I am a mom of 3 boys, 12 year old twins and a 3 year old. I have always had a "tummy" but now with the past pregnancies and of course age, I just can't get rid of it. I have wanted a tummy tuck since I had my twins and now that I know that there will be no more babies my wish will be granted.
I can't wait till my surgery but I have a lot to do before then. My huuby surprised me with a mini ski trip for just the 2 of us before the TT and we also have a ski trip planned with our twins. I also want to clean the entire house, shop for all my post TT needs and get some freezer meals prepared. Oh and get to the gym a lot before I can't go for a long while. Any advice for TT preparations?
One week to go!!!!! I can't believe that in 1 week...

Today I went in for my 1st PO visit. He changed my dressing took a look and I got my 1st look. It was weird seeing the difference. There is some swelling bot it does look better. My Mom says I look so skinny.
I have been pretty much staying in my bed. I have it all set up with lots of pillows and one of those back rest with arms pillow. I have all my supplies on my nightstand. My hubby is taking good care of me. I get up to use the bathroom but that is it.
Drains are the worst.

I took another shower today and that does take a lot out of me. Feels odd to have the CG off. still have my drains. I go see my PS on Tues. Crossing my fingers that they can come out then.
I walk around the house, up and down stairs but nothing real active. I guess you could say that I am giving up strenuous activity for Lent. and I gues my hubby is too LOL.
Sleep was difficult last night hope it gets better.
I am looking forward to getting back to normal only with a new tummy,
