The drains and staples are out and I got to eat real food. I went to Cracker Barrel and had an egg with cheese and some very crisp bacon. I don't think I've ever had an egg taste so good. I'm down 18 lbs in 11 days!

Ok, so I had my surgery on Tuesday and I made it through. I was supprisingly doing well in the hospital and they kept telling me I was an easy patient. I don't have any pain so far and I really didn't need much medication in the hospital either. I don't have a scale that will weigh me because there aren't any that I can buy that go past 300 pounds so I con't wait until my appointment on Monday when they will weigh me. I have to get my JP drains taken out but so far, they aren't too much of a pain. I have to empty them three times a day and change my bandages at leat once per day,which, I do myself. My husband helps a little but he really doesn't know what to do. I love himanyway and he is being so sweet and supportive that I'm just glad he is with me. Anyway, I can't wait till I get to eat my eggs and cheese meal. I'm really not that hungry now but I think it might be because of the gas pains. I can't really tell if I'm full either. I'm having trouble getting my 2 protein drinks and water in but I'm sure that is because I just had surgery. i'm not too worried...yet. That's about it, I'll try to keep updated but I'm sure I won't lol.
