Day 1. So yesterday was the big day surgery was at 7:00 &was suppose to last 3hrs but after opening me up ended having a hernia which he fixed. Recovery didnt go as well bevause I was nausead and keep threwing up which belibe me hurt lik hell. Wat evr u do dnt throw up or cough itd painful. So finally I was table and my husband took me to the recovery house. Nurses said my walking was gud and had a hard time going pee and wiping myself. I have one drain in only which was feeling fast. Took a nap woke up way better. Walking seemed easy seeing that I was peeing evry 10 min. The drains barely feeln up so thats a great sign haven a hard time sleeping but over all doing well rig
ht now. Lets see what today has in store since I will be goin home.

Day2. Seems a little more harder thrn yesterday...

Seems a little more harder thrn yesterday. I had a big problem with nasea so they had to prescribe me something. When I get up im having burning sensation is this normal? Still haven a little bit of fliuds comimg out of the drain amd since I only have one im hoping it will come fast. Im on my norcos to control the pain and eating soft things just to put something in my system. Its hard not really hungry but have to force myself to eat something so today was mash potatoes. I sware im the pillow queen right now lol!! Hopefully evryday will get bettr. Talk to u tomorroe.

Day3: Well feel the same as yesterday really sore...

Well feel the same as yesterday really sore. I feel real gassy today I wonder wat i can take to get rid of that. Trying to rest as much possible but my body getting so sore from laying down. Still tryin to eat simply things that are easy to swallow cuz my throat still hurting from surgery. Really cant see my stomach but from what I can see,it is flat but swollen. Still taking my meds evry 4 hrs to elimanate pain. Tuesday go to ps office so im sure I will see my stomach.

I'm the day after you and I know what you're going through. I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers and we'll get through this! Let's think shopping for cute clothes again, being healthier and losing that tummy.

Don't be will all be fine.  And you are not selfish.  I think it is wonderful that you are doing this for yourself.  You are raising five children so it is time for mom. 

So take a deep breath and focus on the end result.  Keep the positive thoughts in your head because that will help in your healing process. 

Two more days and you will have that beautiful new tummy...that you deserve:)

Keep us up to date and let us know who you are doing after surgery.  We will all be here to cheer you on and lift your spirits if necessary.
