Good luck today Christa... it's a scaryvelous thing you are doing. Just think of all the time you will get to spend with your kids as a slender athletic mom instead of a mom that they might be (I was by my mum) embarrassed to have people know is their mom. YOu'll do GREAT!
Hi Christa - Just wanted to give you some good wishes for a good recovery with no complications. I am also a nurse but that didn't make it any easier to go through the surgery. Today you are not a nurse - you are the patient! But just know that there are many who will be praying for you this day. I certainly will do that for you. My faith has taken be down many roads and I believe in the power of prayer. So again good luck and we'll see you on the other side!
A fellow Dayton-area RNY-er here! Just one week out myself, so thought I'd pop on to wish you best of luck and let you know you'll be in my prayers. Should you have any questions at all post-op, feel free to look me up!
Welcome to the next chapter of your life!
Congratulations on your upcoming surgery! I am post-op Laparoscopic RNY; my surgery was on 5/24/05. Anyway, I will be praying for you, and I know you will come through surgery with flying colors. Pretty soon, you will be a big ol’ loser!! I’m not going to tell you that the first few weeks after surgery will be a bed of roses because it was pretty bad for me. But today, I feel fine and the only thing that I regret is that I didn’t have surgery in 2004 when I first started researching it. So, if you find that you’re having a hard time coping right after surgery, please know that it DOES get better. Don’t ever hesitate to email me if there is anything I can do for you – even if you just need a pep talk! So here’s to you… may you have a successful surgery, improved health, energy galore, many “wow moments”, and fabulous before-and-after pics! God bless! Hugs, Tracy
