Just a quick post-op update. Guess what I can see if I look straight down? That's right! I can see all the way to China! So many nicknames for the cha-cha, va jay jay, hootenanny. My five year old used to call them China's. In our home they are called FA-China's... but whatever you want to call it... I CAN SEE MINE! When I sit down to pee, I can see it. When I'm checking my binder and dressings in the mirror, I can see it. I have a China!!!
On a less exciting note, the only other thing I feel I should report today is about my drains. I forgot to tell you about those. I have two. I'm averaging about 10 ml's of bloody drainage per hour. That's it. Not too bad.
I should also probably mention pain. Not much at all. I'm staying on top of it w/ Percocet every 4 hours. I'm also taking Phenergan every 6 hours. It's working nicely. I can feel that something happened, but this is less pain than when I got my lapband. I am so glad I didn't wait to do this. If you are thinking that you may need this done, start preparing now (doctor, financial, vacation time) to do this. It is so worth it.
One LAST thing, I promise. I am going into work tomorrow for a couple of hours, basically just to show my face. I feel THAT good. Mr. W is going to drive because I'm not ready to do that much yet. And, I think I'm going to go back to work on Monday, again with Mr. W dropping me off and picking me up. My new building is super close to his, so this works out perfectly. Really, everything has been amazingly smooth. And flat! Which reminds me, I think I better log off so I can go see China again... so excited for when I actually get to GO there. Ha, I'm not deleting that last sentence. I think my narcotics are kicking in. XOXO
