I'm a 42-year old mother of four boys. Married...
On 7/26 I'm having a full TT, BL (no augmentation) and lipo on flanks, inner and outer thighs. I can hardly wait! I have read hundreds of postings from women who say it was the best choice, and they'd do it again in a heartbeat. I pray those are my sentiments when it's all over. Honestly, I wish I could fast forward a month or so and already get to the results. :-)
The biggest challenge is managing my expectations. Will it look right? Am I doing too much? Those questions fill my brain. I'm also obsessed with looking at before and after pictures all the while wondering if my results will look as good. Well, we shall see, right? :-)
Eight days and counting...
Two days and a wake up!
Nervous. Anxious. Ready to get 'er done.
Oh and my cousin told me that I'm only 41!!! Too funny.
I'm so thankful for this site. It's really hard to discuss how excited I am to see my new look with people who may not be able to do this for themselves right now. I never want to come off insensitive...but I'm SOOO VERY EXCITED. :-)
Tomorrow is the day!
Tomorrow is my day. I am looking forward to it.
Today is the day!!
My final step of preparation is making pre-measured bags of frozen fruit for my smoothies. My family and friends have been great and very supportive. Many of them want to come to the hospital for extra support. No thank you!! lol
Well, the next post from me will be with perky boobs and a flat stomach...being over shadowed by Vicodin and Valium!!
I pray blessings on those going in today and tomorrow (just in case I'm too high to remember to pray tomorrow) and a speedy recovery for us all.
WHOOHOO!! I'm really doing it y'all!!!!! :-)
Post op - Day 1
I am not used to being so immobile and having someone do everything for me. I am also grateful for the support of my family and friends. They even wanted to come sit at the facility while I was in surgery. How sweet was that???
Taking meds every 4 hours like clock work. Was able to eat a yogurt, some cashews and cherries yesterday. Didn't have much of an appetite. I am also up and down frequently...1 minute up and laughing, the next out like a light.
All and all, it has not been unbearable. I can hardly wait to really see what I'm working with under the CG. :-)
So far the Dr and his staff have been AMAZING. Extremely professional, warm and personable. Dr Williams is patient and will spend as much time as you need to answer all questions. Tracy (the office manager) is adorable! She's very reassuring and kind. I have not had my procedure yet, but so far my Dr and his staff are wonderful.
