Had my Surgery

Hey, even though I don't seem to have any followers yet. I am going to try to keep updating this for something to reflect on. Ok well on March 17 @ 7:00 am I arrived at Tobey Hospital to under go my Gastric Bypass Surgery. I had been completely calm for the entire process and just wanted it DONE. Until the night before surgery. I laid in bed with my daughter and fiance and for some reason I started to tear up. I was afraid for my little girl. What if something had happened to me? I mean I was fat but I wasn't willing to risk my life to be thin. I finally was able to fall asleep. The next morning the alarm went off and I got right up. Checked my bag, made sure my daughter had everything she needed for school and off we went. On the ride I started to cry. I got so nervous but I knew I was doing the best thing. See, I am the type of person who believes everything happens for a reason. So I kept reminding myself that and I calmed down and made it through.

When I arrived I waited for like 10 min and then a nurse came and got me and off I went. She had me take a urine test to  check for pregnancy. Then I put on my neat little dress that I was gonna be stuck in for the next few days. They ran my IV and off we went into the OR. I don't remember that much but being rolled into the room it was smaller than I imagined. They had me scooch over onto this little tiny OR table/bed. I remember them restraining my arms to the side and then I got the mask and that was about it. I woke up and I was immediately in discomfort. I felt like I got hit and dragged by 10 Mack trucks. Lol. It was bad. I remember a male nurse telling me he was hooking up my PCA pump and swabbing my lips. I pressed that button the second I could. I kept trying to wake up but it was hard. About a few hours later I was being brought to my room. Were I immediately wanted to walk. I knew that the only way I was gonna get that gas out was by walking so the nurses were a bit surprised but up I got and made my rounds. The first night I didnt sleep well at all my stupid machines kept beeping. If it wasnt the IV machine it was the heart monitor. I felt so bad for my poor roommate. Ofcourse every time it beeped she woke up to. But we made it through.

Thats I all I have to talk about for now but i'll be back to write more later.. Xoxo
