Hubby's Big Day!

Oct 30, 2009

Today 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!
