Today is two months post-op. Life has been quite the ride since the morning of July 8.
Two months ago, I went into the hospital with a sense of calm and peace about what I was about to ask a surgeon to do to my body. I went into the hospital with a heart swollen with hope that I would finally be able to have good health and a shot at living a long life with my husband, family and friends.
Two months later, here is the result.

One of the last regular meals I’ve eaten today: tacos al carbon at a local Mexican restaurant.
Today is T-minus 3 days and counting until I begin my pre-op diet. I’m beginning it a week early, as the week I am supposed to begin it I will be teaching workshops to adults. As I told my teaching partner, “I’d rather not be in carb withdrawal and bitchy while I’m trying to teach these people!” So I’m going to start a week early to get the withdrawal out of my system. I figure it can’t hurt anything to begin a week early, and whatever I can do to lose a little more weight before surgery will be a good thing for both me and my surgeon.
But before I start the first stage of the next stage of the rest of my life, I decided that I wanted to have a few “last meals” so to speak.
