Sleeve time!

After a horrible weekend due to the very sudden and very unexpected death of Simba, and a migraine that lasted 16 hours, I’m finally at Hershey Medical Center. I’ll be headed to pre-op any minute now, and will hopefully be wheeled into an OR within the next hour or two.

I’m so glad my surgeon was able to move my surgery date up by 8 days. I’ve been having non-stop heartburn for nearly a week, and there were bits of dark blood (like the cliche “coffee grounds”) in the migraine-induced vomit I dealt with yesterday.

This surgery is slated to last 6 to 8 hours, and will be rather extensive due to dealing with so much scar tissue and removing the stitched-up ulcer before getting to the revisioning part, but it will be worth it.

See you on the other side!

Having run through the entire rainbow of colors, with the notoriously finicky pinks and reds being my favorites, I’m here to attest that it […]

Meet Simba. KMR to the rescue! Ryan was happy to provide body warmth for the little guy. Dan didn’t even mind getting pooped on. His name is Simba, he’s just three weeks old, and my friend and I are doing our best to make sure he survives. ♥ P.S. PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF ALL […]
