I really didn't want to do a blog but, I took into consideration how helpful everyone has been so I had to. Work and school has been busting my ass :). I just couldn't find the time to get started. My surgery is just 3 days away and other then not having my blood work back everything is going great. I have an appointment Monday to drop it off at my Drs office & Tuesday is the big day!!! To be honest I really don't have an exciting story to tell like most of you. I have been struggling with my shape (notice I didn't say my weight) for as long as I can remember. I probably tried every diet there is. Succeeded at some failed at most. I'm actually ok with my weight. I just think its in all the wrong places. I like my Dr. for reminding me that all I'm doing is adjusting my fat.
Originally I was planning to see Dr. Perry but, I found a great Dr right here in New York City. It's a few grand more however the difference is the same money I would have spent on a flight, hotel & an Aid to help me through recovery. It took me almost a year to convince my BF. I know for sure he couldn't handle watching me in pain. I feel good being in NY with my family & friends. I didn't tell my grandma yet but, I'm sure she will be moving in with me for the first week. My BF wanted to take off of work. I told him he can just have the night shift lol. Tonight I'm posting my pre opt pics. I'm 5'7 & 206 lbs. don't be fooled by the number my breast are about 20 lbs each lol 40 DDD. Oh I have a wish pic that I love. It maybe a little to much bootie for an aspiring Principal/Professor or it may be the bootie that gets me the job. I have a list of things I purchased. I will post them tonight too. I'm actually in the laundry washing my night gown & linens.
Oh so yeah about me. I'm 33 the proud mother of 2 beautiful children my daughter will be 17 in April @ my son just turned 10 this past December. I am a Family Therapist & currently is my last year of graduate school at NYU. This is actually my graduation present to myself. A huge part of me feel guilty about not paying off some bills or using my saving for something a little more productive. At the same time I feel like I'm always being responsible & right now it's about me. No regrets at all right now I'm just praying that everything goes ok & that I'm happy with my results. My PCP has been very supportive. He even agreed to give me an extra week off work if I needed it. No one at my job knows. I actually didn't share with too many people especially not anyone who I didn't think would support me. My sisters have been my cheerleaders through it all I love them both. My friend who is going to Dr. Perry next month has also been my motivation. Oh yeah & my Surgeon is Dr. Morrison who has a private practice in NYC. He's from the islands & I think he's super charming & a cutie. I did 3 consults 2 in person & Dr. Perry via email. I'm glad that I decided to stay here & I'm just trying to stay positive about everything. I feel a little cough coming on but, I serve an awesome God so, I'm not stressing about that either. I think that's it for tonight. I'll have my babe take some pics tonight. I'm trying to get as much xxxxx in as possible before Tuesday. Not to many people talk about that on this blog. I would like to know how long you ladies waited before you started xxxxxx again lol. Yeah 3 1/2 years with my man & still very ouch attracted to him. Not sure how many days I can go without it. So I will post a list of my supplies & mommy pics. The next time you ladies here from me I will be heading in. Unless you have questions just pray for me.

I won't be posting until after my appointment on Tuesday.

As for me lastnight was rough for sleeping. I tossed & turned all night long. Very uncomfortable. I don't like the way the meds make me feel so I'm not taking them anymore. I did take a crap today & that made me feel a little better.
What I really wanted to share today is how good my sister has been to me. I've seen here everyday since surgery & she has really been so good to me. (Although we generally speak everyday & have a great relationship) I really don't know where I would be without her. Today she came to check on me (my BF went back to work). She ended up washing & combing my hair. She gave me the best showerI ever had. Got all the tape & markers stuff of. Moisturized my entire body & helped put my garment back on (not as bad bc I'm shrinking lol). She put on the neosporin & benedryl for scars & itching. I say all this to say how greatful I am for her. She is a Nurse Assistant so I'm sure knowing her stuff helps. She was more excited about the SX then me. I'm not posting any pics for another few weeks. I'm still very greatful for a smooth sx, a good recovery & hopefully great results.
The last 2 nights have been really rough for...
