Hey guys, Surgery went well. My last memory was sitting in the waiting room, happy as Larry and then Voila - I was in the hospital room! I didnt have a CHANCE to get scared or nervous! One minute I was waiting and the next it was all OVER rover! lol
This is me pre surgery, my last memory.
Once the Surgeon got in there, he discovered I had a hyatus hernia and repaired that. ( I had NO IDEA) He also said there was a slight hick-up when he pulled the stomach out of the large portal. Basically my skin ripped, leaving a rather large bruise which I will show you. All I can say, is I am glad I was asleep!
But that was not the sore part. The sore part has been an internal stitch on the left hand side. Thats been causing some problems. It means I cant get in and out of a bed so I caved and brought a recliner which I have been sleeping in in my motel room. It also means i cant dress or dry myself. Now Peter, my darling husband didnt mind doing that but he has gone home now and Catherine, my friend is here to look after me for the week. Now that could really be asking alot of her.
The food side is things is dwarfed by the getting better stuff. I have eaten mullied chicken, egg and yoghurt with protein powder. Water as much as I can.
I went for two small walks today. I just have to remind myself that its only day 3 and to gove myself some time to heal.
All in all I am feeling good.
PS: thankyou for all your support :)

The count down is OOOONNNNNN!
Tomorrow I need to make my final pre-surgery purchases.
Pyjamas -- yuk! lol
I have a phone meeting with the nurse this afternoon to finalise what food I need to take. I really cant get my head around what food I will be eating. I prob wont want to eat!
I need to make sure the washing is up todate so I can pack a bag for Mr10, who is going to stay with a friend for a few days.
Make sure there is enough food in the cupboards for the other kids and pack my own bags. DH gave me a voucher for a massage at Polynesian Spa which I would like to use too ( wont be able to lie on my tummy for a few weeks after)
I paid the bill on Thursday so its all in concrete now!
I still havent taken any photos as yet. People are starting to notice I am loosing. I had two people ask me yesterday and one today, if i had lost weight! About 6kg so far.
Exciting scary stuff!
