    SO excited for you. It’s like Christmas eve for you tonight!

    I would say face wipes and hand gel. I felt a bit grubby after my op so the face wipes were very welcome. Antibacterial hand gel as you can never be too careful – especially if you are going to have ‘small’ visitors (kids are notoriously mucky!!)
    Wishing you the very best of luck for tomorrow. We will all budge up on the loser’s bench for you. Let us know how you get on.

    The Spire at Portsmouth is an excellent hospital. Very clean and comfortable and the staff are brilliant. 😉

    I know can’t wait, can relax a bit more and finish packing once the baby is in bed as he’s taken a likening to
    Unpacking my bag! Will let you know how I get on! Still not nervous!! Sure that will all change in the morning once my son is at nursery and I’m on my way to the hospital! Xx

    That’s fantastic! How wonderful to be all done within hours and to be back home and comfortable.

    How are you feeling today? It is possible that at around day 4-5 you might be feel a bit ‘down’ but that is entirely normal after any sort of surgery. Make sure you don’t go too mad thinking you are ‘better’ than you actually are and remember to sip, sip, sip water all day. It’s a great healer.

    Looking forward to hearing from you again 😉

    Welcome to the world of wls you big loser lol!
