This is my menu today. Last night was the last "real" meal before surgery. Today I can only have clear liquids. This is to um, clean out my system prior to surgery. Decaf coffee, sugar free jello, broth soups, 100% fruit juice mixed with half water. This is all I'm "eating" today.
To say that I'm nervous is an understatement. I had a hard time sleeping last night. Pete asked me this morning how I was doing and I told him I was nervous. I asked him if he thought I was doing the right thing. He reminded me again why I started this part of my journey. He reminded me of the ups and the downs that I've had in the past. He reminded me of my habits that kept me in a cycle of losing, gaining, plateauing. Basically he told me everything that I already knew and reassured me that I was going to be fine.
My goal today is to stay busy. To keep the whole thing off my mind for now. I have a blog post all ready to go tomorrow when I head off to surgery. I'm planning on having Pete take my picture to post later and I'll have him take some pictures in the process (hopefully I won't be too drugged up to remind him). I should be out of the hospital on Thursday afternoon and I can't promise I'll post then, but I will get on the computer Friday to let you know how I'm doing.
