Locs

Hey there, dear readers of the page. I wanted to drop in and talk about a topic completely unrelated to my transition.

I want to combine my locs to make thicker locs. The theory is two-fold. 1: make my hair stronger and 2: make my locs thicker. Now comes the interesting part – trying to get Egg on board.

Thicker locs look sexier to me, and mine have thinned out considerably.

So, that’s my idea and that is what I am sticking to, as of now.

bye y’all!

Girly Beards

Hey there, dear readers of the page! Long time, no talk nor type, huh? Well, I probably won’t be around much, and really, all I wanted to do was throw down an idea here so I have it in digital storage.

My idea – a series, or even a book, magazine or something of the sort about trans women and the beards they had before shedding their male skins for good. I know I had one, and it was strange to shave it all the way down, until it was just stubble; finally, one last shave and I was clean.

Anyway, something along those lines. I think it would be fun!

License

With the name change, I had to update my drivers license, and when I tell you that I took the most heinous picture ever, I am not exaggerating! It is horrible! I’m contemplating losing it in about a year, so I can hopefully take another picture. It’s  that bad.

The DMV said it would take up to 30 days to receive. I got it in 3. Yay for that, and now comes the hard part – getting all documents changed over into my correct name and gender.

more later…

Bowel Prep

Well, dear readers of the page, today is my personal day of hell, otherwise known as bowel prep. Surgery is tomorrow, so the surgeon wants me squeaky clean. What this means for me is no solid food at all today. Starting at 12am and going through tomorrow.

Bowel prep proper starts at 12pm with one bottle of magnesium citrate and three dulcolax pills. From there it just gets worse. I have to drink another half bottle of mag citrate at 10pm. 10 mother fucking pm! I am usually in bed between 8-9pm. How the fuck am I going to stay up that long? Then, after pooping my guts out, I will go to bed for a few hours, before waking up at 4am to give myself a fleet enema. Yay. Then a shower with anti bacterial soap for 10 minutes, before heading off to the hospital.

I certainly hope surgery is early in the morning tomorrow. The earlier, the better. I hate waiting around and will definitely want to eat some yummy hospital food again, before hopefully being released on Wednesday, so that I can eat better food. As you all can tell, my thoughts are all about yummy food.

We went to the continental breakfast this morning so Egg could get some food. It all looked so delicious, and I couldn’t have any of it. Instead, I had two glasses of apple juice. I’m drinking Sprite right now. I can’t have orange juice because it has pulp in it. NO pulp. Oh well, that’s all I have right now.

p.s. We walked to Target this morning to get some liquid for me, and some provisions for Egg. That was fun. But now, I need to be near a toilet, hahaha.

Welcome To Philly

Well, dear readers of the page, me and Egg made it to Philly today. It is only 3pm and I am exhausted. We have been up since 4am. The flight was good, but when we got to the hotel, we found out that we wouldn’t be able to check in until at least 3pm. We got here at 11am, so we had to kill some time. We checked our bags with the hotel, and set out on foot to find some food and supplies. The food came in the form of the Hard Rock Cafe, and get this: our server was from Roswell, and he went to school at the same high school as Egg. He graduated many years after her, though (don’t you feel old, Egg?)

After lunch, we went to CVS to gather some supplies for my liquid diet and bowel prep, which starts tomorrow. Now, we are ensconced in the hotel room resting up. It has been a long day, and there’s still more of it to come.

That’s all for now. I’ll post more later.

Completely Paid

Well, dear readers of the page, I have some exciting news. Today, I finished payment on my surgery. All monies paid. Surgery is a go, although I haven’t heard from the hospital yet, but that shouldn’t be a problem. So now, excitement mixed with splash of nervousness thrown in takes overs until they knock me out!

Partial Payment

We finally got the total surgeons fee for surgery, and it was a larger number than we expected. Thankfully, the surgeon will take partial payment. So, today, we paid 2500 dollars. The rest will be due on the 12th. I am immensely thankful for my wonderful Egg, who came up with a solution which means we will be able to cover the surgeons fee.

The hospital still hasn’t called with their portion, but Egg assures me that since I have Medicare(which I didn’t know about until two weeks ago), they(the hospital) acannot request payment upfront. I don’t know how true this is, but right now it’s all we can go on. And I hope to the gods that it is true. Because that will be a big mess if not. i don’t know what we’ll do.

Anyway, dear readers of the page, that is really all i wanted to share at the moment. I am just thrilled to have a partial payment on the books.
