Pre-Game: Surgery Tomorrow!

By this time tomorrow I will have been wheeled out of the OR and will have the coveted classification as a "post-opper".  Today I am gathering last minute supplies and hanging close to hotel, while trying to stay calm.

We have enjoyed our weekend here in New England. We walked around Walden Pond, drove through Vermont and enjoyed some local microbrews.  My dad arrived to town yesterday and will be here until Thurs and my mom is coming on Saturday to switch with Jeff, since he has to get back home to take care of his son.

I check into the hospital tomorrow at 6:00am and surgery is at 7:30am. It will be about 6 hours long.

Here's to a very restful night sleep for my surgeon.

See you all on the other side:)

  1. Good luck tomorrow Amanda! That's wonderful that your family is coming out to be with you. Will be thinking of you tomorrow I'm sure everything will go wonderfully, if your orthodontist sent you all the way to New England for the surgery you are probably in the hands of quite an amazing surgeon! :)

  2. Yay good luck!!! Can't wait to see you on the other side!!

  3. All the best to you, Amanda! Sending healing thoughts your way. Can't believe your day is finally here!

  4. Best wishes Amanda! Stay positive! erin

  5. Good Luck! Don't worry, those 2 weeks go fast! You will be so happy in the end. I still can't believe I had an 11 mm BSSO at age 50 10 weeks ago. Your surgeon looks great. Wishing you well!

  6. Best wishes for your surgery tomorrow! I'll be thinking of you and praying that everything goes perfectly!

  7. Good luck!!! I go in Wednesday for my surgery!!

  8. good luck Amanda, everything will go great. Cant wait to hear all about it when you are out of surgery

  9. Good luck Amanda! I will be thinking of you! I promise it's not too bad post-op, you'll be fine!
