So, tomorrow is surgery day. I have done everything I can do to prepare for this day. The last two weeks have been very difficult in terms of the liquid diet. Smelling food has been a big challenge and honestly, I have spent much of the time being very hungry. I did not deviate one time and for that, I am pretty proud of myself. I did it!
At this point, I am not scared. I am excited and looking forward to ending this part of the journey and to starting the next part. The part where I lose this excess weight and start to move around freely. The part where I don't need a CPAP machine, the part where I don't have GERD, the part where I don't have high blood pressure, and lastly, the part where I am no longer considered MORBIDLY OBESE!
Earlier this week, I did have some jitters. I have a friend who is about a year out from her surgery and who has made tremendous progress getting fit and healthy. I needed to hear the reality check that I knew only she would know. For that, I am eternally grateful! She said everything I needed to hear.
I have been checked out by the doctors. I have done everything asked. I am good to go.
Just got my check in time for tomorrow. It is 1230 and surgery at 3pm. Yay!
Here we gooooo......
