Well the big day is finally here.....this time tomorrow I will be getting prepped for gastric bypass!  I’m very excited and just ready for this show to get started.  This morning I enjoyed my last cups of coffee that I will have for a while.  But that’s ok....the benefits I will receive overshadow that coffee.  Today is a light diet with dinner tonight being a liquid diet.  I’ve eaten all last week everything I wanted to eat one more time either for forever or temporary.  

Today I’m continuing with getting my house back into order after having new bamboo floors put in a couple of weeks ago and doing a lot of painting (that I’m not through with).  Things are shaping up but I finally took some pressure off of myself in trying to get it all done before the surgery.  It’s not happening and what does it matter?  It doesn’t.  I’ll work on it as I can when I’m home recovering.  

Bought myself some pajamas that ironically I will not get to wear for very long.  I’m going to give them to a friend of mine when they are way too big which will not be far off.  Bought some new underwear...again...won’t wear them long...but I’m not giving those to anyone...LOL LOL LOLestatic.  I have decided that in December I’m going to have a BIG UNDERWEAR BONFIRE PARTY in my backyard.  Roast some marshamllows that I CAN‘T HAVE....and say goodbye to the big drawes...

A week ago I went to the hospital where I will be to pre-register for my surgery.  The waiting are for registration was sort of out in the open lobby and as I was sitting there waiting for my turn...I noticed some people being wheeled by me to the outside.  Some were in these huge wheelchairs and some where not.  I thought to myself...I think those people have had some type of weight loss surgery.  I then made a mental note to myself...that they (the nurses) would NOT BE WHEELING ME DOWN IN A WIDE ASS WHEELCHAIR.  (No offense to anyone that actually has to have one) but...I’m not that big.  People were whispering about them when people were coming down in them and I thought...there is no way I’m going to be the topic of conversation.  So...before they put me under...I’m making sure they all understand....no WIDE ASS WHEELCHAIRS for me.  If they don’t have one...I’ll call my local pharmacy and have one delivered...LOL.  I’m not worried about the surgery...I’m more worried about the wheelchair...LOL.  

Got my Skeechers walking shoes....new socks....my capri exercise pants....t-shirts...to do my walking in the halls....new bedroom slippers.....my breathing machine thingy I have to do to keep from getting pneumonia...a few magazines...and hopefully they will have Wi-fi so I can use my laptop.  

Going to go get my nails done today...have to keep one nail clear so they can see my nailbed.  And for 10 days now I’ve had to wash with Dial soap....to prevent infections.  

Can’t remember how long the surgery is...I forgot.  I’ll find out today when I see my surgeon.  I get out Thursday...and will be home from work for about two weeks.  

That’s it......
