'Twas the night before surgery...

The hospital bag is packed, the last solid-food meal has been eaten, and the surgery is almost here. It was a really good day—productive (got everything at the house order for when I come home) yet relaxing (got a facial at Burke Williams and enjoyed a full morning soaking up all the spa has to offer). I spent some quality time with my fiance, caught up with friends over the phone, and had a delicious dinner with my parents. Really, I couldn't have asked for a better surgery-day-eve.

I'll be waking up before the birds tomorrow to be at hospital around 5:45am, and rolling into the operating room at 7:30 for the 3 hour procedure. After another hour or two in the recovery room, I'll be able to reunite with my fiance & family in my room, where I'll be for two days. [Really hoping for one with an ocean view, so if you could just keep your fingers crossed with me on that one, that'd be great :)]

So, here's my final pre-op post. Just to say a temporary bon voyage before the big day. Prayers would be greatly appreciated—for me, for my loved ones, for the doctors. Phone calls, not as much, but texts and emails would be wonderful. Thanks, everyone! Here we go...


  1. By now you have had the surgery I am sure. Praying that you did great and look forward to reading all of your future post chick. You will do great and will be fine I am now on my 3rd week from upper and lower jaw with chin surgery and it does get better!!!

  2. Wondering how you're doing right now - hope you got your ocean view room, and recovery isn't being too hard on you! Looking forward to future posts! :) x
