Hello to all...I am in the hospital and everything went great. I had surgery at 9:30 yesterday. I took my first walk around the floor at 3pm yesterday and walked 4 more times. I am so happy and excited NOW because I am not in pain...I was ready to feel really bad...and I do not feel bad.I think the fact that I was walking and doing excersize pre op REALLy helped. I have had ice chips all day and just had my upper GI done, no leaks I willl get some clear liquids soon.The moraphine is helping the little pain that I have but my nurse said I have not used much..I did not get much sleep last night and something is making me itch like crazy..I have had benadryl 2x and that helps the itchies....The only hardship is that I just started my cycle and that was a drag with the cathater, but it is out now.I watched the space shuttle go up today and decided to name my pouch, Discovery....I shall be learning and discovering all kinds of new things and not just about food, abvout all types of things as I start this new part of my life...I am so happy and excited, nervous that later I will feel the oppisite low...but for now I am elated!!!!They have birds in the waiting room..there are some pretty ones...I need to get going and walk some more That is all for now Pennie
