Home again

I am HOME. Everything went well. I lost 16 lbs on my pre op diet. So my surgery day weight was 373.4.
I have five incisions. Each one is sealed with dermabond. They should heal nicely.

I had my GI test this morning to make sure there was no leaking. Then after hours and hours of waiting I was allowed to FINALLY added to have something to drink. Ice water and strawberry jello.

I ate and drank too much too quickly but I was able to control myself and didn't get sick. I was finally was allowed to be discharged at 5 PM.

And now I'm home. I actually feel some hunger so I plan on having some unjury chicken broth tonight.

Thanks for all the well wishes.

Heres to the first day of the rest of my life!
