Hubby's Big Day!
Oct 30, 2009Today he did it! He is now banded. He is doing well, sleeping as expected. The surgery was an hour longer than expected because they found a hiatal hernia they had to fix before placing the band. Then he was in recovery for 3 1/2 hours (2 hours longer than they said but it was not because of his health, just because of a busy day). He had a rough time in recovery with the team taking care of him but it ended well and the recovery team had good intentions (it was just a very CRAZY day for them as well). It was extremely stressful and nerve racking for both of us, but he was joking on the way home so I know he is the same person that went into the surgery! I am excited for him to start his journey and am nervous that I will be next! He is already down 30+ pounds from the pre-op diet. Between the two of us we are down almost 50 pounds in 3-4 weeks! Yahoo! Oh and did I mention.....Dr Hunter is AMAZING!!!! He was so comforting to me. I love him already and I only met him twice very briefly!
