Pretty good!  Thanks for checking in!  Tomorrow is the start of my 2-week liver-shrink diet.  Things are starting to feel pretty real.  It's a little nerve-wracking, but I still feel good about it - hard to believe it's really happening!

Thanks, Jen!  It's getting super close.  I'm now in the 3-day run up where I have to use special soap when I shower each day!  We did our trial-run trip to the hospital yesterday, so we know exactly where to go and what to do. I have to be there at 5:30 am!  I guess at least that will avoid most of the traffic.... :)

It gets really REAL when you start taking the showers! I had to change my sheets every night too. So close! Best wishes!

Oooh, maybe I should too - my instructions didn't say anything about changing sheets every night, just the special soap (hibiclens). But it sounds like a good idea!

Thanks, @Gretta!

Thanks, @Gretta!

(Note to Lurkers: the changing of sheets is to reduce the chance your carry resistant skin bacteria over from one night to the next, especially since you are trying to decontaminate your skin of Staph and other bacteria)

Ok, here we go!  I'll post when I'm out. Thanks, everyone, for all the support and knowledge and kindness you've shared over the past few months. Can't wait to get started on the next phase of the process!  ❤️❤️❤️

I'm alive! Still woozy, lots of pain from trapped air lower down. Throats hurts. But overall not awful. So far minimal intake / I have tiny sponges on sticks to swab my mouth and some of the water trickles down. No nausea yet. Still in recovery because my room's not ready. Sleeping lots. 

 

Everybody was was great about remembering my cpap EXCEPT the first recovery room nurse. I hat to fight to get her to put it on me. But I won. :)

You did it, @Kio! Good job advocating for yourself! That trapped gas is the pits. Hopefully pain meds will ease it. So happy about no nausea! Here's to healing quickly!

Feeling at least good enough to post....that is a good sign!  Great remembering to insist on your C-PAP!  Enjoy the sleep (sometimes a medicated sleep is the best thing!)
