One more night with the drain.

It's official. The drain comes out tomorrow. YEA!! I am not looking forward to the pain, but I am not nervous. I will take tylonel, but no anti-anxiety drugs. I want to be able to drive myself. This may sound strange, but I've been cooped up here for too long. If I can drive myself and get this taken care of, that means I can take myself to a grocery store afterwards and just walk. I am desperate to just be OUT.

I am hoping I won't need another stitch, but  if so I will simply insist they numb me before doing it. You have no idea how much I want a bath! If all is well tomorrow, I can have a bath on Saturday. AH, a BATH!!!

OH, and I'm not weighing myself for 3 more weeks. They told me the swelling would be mostly over 6 weeks post op so no weighing until then. I can't face it otherwise. If I have to do another round, so be it. I hope I don't (of course). Still, knowing it's a viable option that WILL work if I need it is such a comfort. I fell into the wine yesterday and had a doughnut (I NEVER eat them) last night as well. Gah! It's clean eating today! I'm hoping the periodic steak days and protein days are correcting any issues.

Here's to y'all and your success!!! Thank you SO MUCH for being a part of mine and the continued support and comments!

I'm SO glad to hear that your drain is coming out tomorrow. That is welcome news indeed! You are going to come through with flying colors-

Your decision not to weigh until the 6 weeks post surgery is wise. Your tissues swell up because of the surgery, and need time to heal. That time will allow any extra fluid build-up to dissipate. I truly think your weight is going to be fine, and you're going to surprise yourself!

Gentle hugs to you.... (I'll be praying for you tomorrow)

p.s. Check my response to your comment yesterday on my blog, on how to sleep on your side w/o really sleeping on your side. It helped me....
