At Cleveland!

Hey ya’ll. Well I’m here at Cleveland, and the first of 3 surgeries is tomorrow. How am I feeling? Eh annoyed. I want to eat. I’m super mega cranky when I don’t eat. Chicken broth is not a meal, people!!!! I’m not really nervous. I’m really ready for this part of my life to be over, but I am not ready to begin the net 9 months.

I got my PICC line earlier this morning, and I have slew of appointments later today, you know to make sure I’m not gonna die on the table. Minor details. I guess its not really real yet. Who knows how really prepared you can actually be for this, ya know? I think I’m ready. Although I guess it doesn’t really matter if I am or not. Its coming…TOMORROW!!

I’m going to try to tweet updates as often as I can, so if you’re on twitter, follow me @excusemydust.

I’ll also update my other blog.

    Jakie, Today is your BIG DAY and you are in my thoughts and prayers. I believe that this is the day that you take control. Recovery is not easy, but the “end result” will be sooooooo worth it. My son, Chris, is your age and had his first surgery over a year ago. His takedown was last May. He is healthy and happy and enjoying life. You have taken the first step in getting the life that you deserve.

    I had my first surgery on the 24th. I had many complications, but now it is week 8 and I am starting to feel quite norrmal with the exception of the bag. The bag is very hard for me to get use to! Hope your doing well!
