D Day Tomorrow



So tonight is the last of the pre op stage. I will be getting my sleeve done tomorrow and I am first cab off the rank. Here's hoping the surgeon gets a good nights sleep ;).

The hospital admissions called today to confirm everything and the lady said I would go from surgery to intensive care..... not sure how that makes me feel as last time I had an op they wheeled me back to the ward after recovery.

I have a awkward mix of excitement and nerves. I am kind of glad it first thing so I don't have to think about it too much in the morning.

On the upside I weighed myself this morning and I have lost 14.1kg in 18 days. Yesterday and today I have had nothing but shakes and vitamins because one of my big fears is them opening me up and being unable to do the operation because my liver has not shrunk enough. When I saw the surgeon I had lost 6kg and he said 12kg would be great so I guess I have done all I can.

Anyway wish me luck and good luck to anyone who had theirs done today or this week.
