Day before surgery

Well, it's here. Holy cow. Can't believe it's finally here. I've recorded a couple of videos today. One this morning before I headed to Mexicali for surgery with Dr. Alberto Aceves, and another after I made it back to the hotel following my tests. So, what happened today
  • Arrived at the airport at 11 AM and was picked up by a very nice guy, and met the other woman who's having surgery tomorrow
  • Drove about one hour and fifty minutes to the Calexico/Mexicali border
  • About 1 mile after crossing the border, arrived at Hospital Almater
  • Had blood drawn, a chest x-ray, and an EKG. Took about 30 mins.
  • Met with a patient coordinator who took payment and went through a few things about tomorrow
  • Was driven to the Crowne Plaza Mexicali and checked in
  • Had room service for a late lunch (since I was fasting for the blood tests)
Below you'll find my videos, and some pictures of Hospital Almater. Wish me luck! Best, gastricsleeve4me
