Pre-op, weigh in, and gowns

Good morning blog world,

Here is my weigh in:
Starting weight - 291
Last week - 278
Today - 276

Total of 15 lbs down! Woohoo.

Yesterday I got the grand tour of our hospital... by way of doing my pre-op. First stop was same day surgery. I met my nurse that will be there when I go in at 6am Monday morning. I will be the first case of the day :). She was such a sweet gal. I was given some special soap to wash myself with in the shower the night before as well as the morning of. I was told what to expect, and that I should be good to go by noon or 1.
Next stop was the lab. Had to pee in a cup and give them some blood. Piece of cake.
The downstairs to diagnostic imaging for the chest x-ray. Again, a very sweet nurse! This is a great hospital, full of amazing people. Can't forget the wardrobe change...
I am such a dork, but the gown looks pretty sexy riiiiiiiiiight? :)

After that, I left the hospital and went to Safeway to pick up some last minute items for next week. Needless to say, I AM READY!!!
I've got a lot to do today at work to prep for a week without me.. I think they will survive, but it is a bit questionable. I love my job and the people I work with, but I am stoked for a week off.

I will try and blog through this whole ordeal. I really want to capture what I go through, so when I get frustrated later, I can look back and see how far I really did come.
