So tomorrow is the big day. I have lost approximately 12 lbs on the liquid diet. I must say I am a little nervous. Packing the suitcase, washing the clothes, and getting the final errands run. I have managed to drink 38 shakes with just water and coffee as the other things to pass my lips. I still have 4 shakes to go, but this was a challenge.
I never cheated though, and that is a miracle. I even had a dream where I was a giant burger (like those Whopper Jr commercials), and I was eating myself. But no food. That was the toughest thing I have had to do mentally. I am ready for this surgery. I am ready to be able to drink or eat more that just shakes.
After surgery, I am still on liquid for two weeks, but a little more options. Broth, jello, cream soups (strained), milk, water, protein drinks, and yes, coffee. More than just shakes. I am going to patiently wait for Sept. 10. That is the day that I can start eating. Pureed foods, but I can still eat.
Well, I promise that as soon as I am home from the hospital, I will let you all know what happened. So until then, stay safe.
