At 58 years old, I have finally gotten to the point that I am going to do something for me for a change. I am 5'1" and 169 lbs. I had a c-section in 1979 and my stomach has never been the same. Anyway, I went for a consult and got all the medical clearances I needed and have my surgery scheduled for August 17, 2011!! I am Ecstatic to say the least.......

Ok, I got the 1 pic to post, so here are some more. I am really getting excited about this and can hardly wait.

Oh My Gosh, 17 days to go!! This is quite an amazing roller coaster ride. The highs are high and the lows are low. Am I doing the right thing or not? All of the questions that go round and round in my head are driving me nuts! LOL I am excited, anxious, apprehensive, nervous, ecstatic.....wow, you name it I am feeling it right now. BUT, all in all I am extremely certain that this is what is best for me and am just praying for a speedy recovery!

Feeling a little bummed today, I had to call in sick at work because of a fever. I went to the doc and he put me on antiobiotics so all should be clear in a day or so. Any way, I can't believe that time is passing so fast. Seems like just yesterday I was going for the consult and now I only have 14 days to go!! Wow this is so surreal now, it seems like I am just floating along...kind of strange feeling COME ON 8/17!!

OK, the antiobiotics cleared me up and I feel 100%...

OK, the antiobiotics cleared me up and I feel 100% better. It is so hard to believe that in just a mere 10 days I will be in surgery OMG!! I wanted to see if you are able to go upstairs after the surgery as my bedroom is up there :-)and I really don't want to stay in the recliner downstairs if I don't have to.

Wow is time ever passing fast. I checked with my...

Wow is time ever passing fast. I checked with my doctor and I can't climb the stairs for the first few days so I guess I will be making my arrangements downstairs around the recliner. This is a very amazing feeling just knowing what is in store, my nerves have calmed to the point that I can now sleep at night without any trouble. I am so ready for this!!

WOW, 4 days to go....I changed my mind about the...

WOW, 4 days to go....I changed my mind about the recliner idea and decided to rent a hospital bed. I am putting it in the living room so that I can be with everybody else and not feel left out. I have quite a house full with my hubby, brother, mother-out-law :-) & my mom (she will be coming in from FL for a few weeks). It will be a full house to say the least & I will probably be really ready to go back to work within about 2 weeks to keep my sanity :-) Actually, I truly love them all and will enjoy the time I get to spend with them while I am out on FMLA for 6 weeks!!

Well, tomorrow morning at 7 a.m. is the big day. I had my markings today and was totally shocked at how much he is going to be cutting....I feel like it will be a whole lot more that what I bargained for, but will definintely be worth it in the long run! But boy is it gonna hurt! I can already feel the pain lol. Any hoo, I am off to bed for a good nights sleep to wake fresh and rested for the long road ahead. Hopefully I will be able to update again by Thursday, we shall see.

YaHoo, I am 2 days post op and have to admit that...

YaHoo, I am 2 days post op and have to admit that the pain is not as bad as I was expecting! I have a few spots that burn at times, but on a level of 1-10, I would say the pain has been about a 2....BUT of course I have definitely taken the pain meds every 4-6 hrs as directed. I already feel better even with the swelling. I went in for surgery at 8 a.m. and was home by 4 p.m. I get to shower today and hopefully can get my hubby to post pics. Stay relaxed & calm everyone, it is worth it.

Day 5 post op and feeling better & stronger every day. This was a great decision! I can not believe how much better my self esteem is already. This is GREAT. My pain level if I try to not do the pain meds comes in at about 3-5. Lots of strange sensations, like crawley, burning.....weird is all I can say. I am posting my markings photos along with some 4 day po photos. I have a boatload of swelling. I feel like I am about to pop lol.

It has been a while since I posted last, but I have been so tired. Swelling is going down every day and I am getting stronger. I am posting some new pic from yesterday. Write more later to catch up with everyone, but I am drained and off to bed.
