  Tomorrow is the day. I'm having my open heart surgery (Wednesday). My surgeon said that it's going to be a very long and difficult surgery. But he gave me an 88% success rate. Sure I'm a little nervous but I know that I will make it. My family is giving me alot of support. My poor husband has been here everyday since I've been in here.
  Anyway yesterday my lapband doctor came in and took all of the fluid out of my band. He said just incase they needed to put tubes down my throat during surgery. Better to be safe then sorry.  I'll probably gain a few pounds back but I know it won't be 117lbs.  You know my lapband doctor is pretty awesome. He's not even affiliated with this hospital and he came out here (45 minutes away) to take the fluid out of my band.  He said he would hook me up again once I'm done with surgery.
  It's very weird to have a total unfill. I've had awesome restriction for many months now and now there is nothing. I guess I'm a little more hungrier than normal but I am trying my best to stick to the guidlines.
  See you soon and keep you posted.
