Well, if I were a race car, I'd be sitting on the track, idling my motor, waiting for the green light to start the race. I check in at the hospital at 6 am tomorrow, a little more than 12 hours from now. As I've said, I will be having laparoscopic gastric bypass (RNY). They plan for me to be in the hospital Friday & Saturday, going home on Sunday if all is well.
I picked my parents up from the airport today (they've been in Arizona, but have their house here in town, where they will stay--so no house guests here) and have done as much prep as I can. I have had 2 days of showers with the "special soap," which is very weird. It is clear liquid and doesn't lather, and has an odd odor, but, whatever will help me avoid infection, I'll do it. I'm finishing up a load of laundry with my comfy sweats that I will wear to the hospital.
By the way, I've lost an even 40 pounds since I started pursuing this surgery on August 28th. :-)
I'll check back when I'm back home!
