I hope all went well, Patti. :)


Thanks! It did. Found out I am down 20 lbs from last month (surgeon wanted me on a liquid diet already for four weeks only for me to find out that that was from his old hospital as he is new to program and then they said three weeks and nut just said two yesterday! Whew the roller coaster of off again on again liquids!). Got all my hospital info and packing list! Talked NUT liquid diet and sold my Lion King tix since I will be on "bowel prep" and she told me for my own good don't go! Lol. Darn it though cuz I havent seen it yet! Starting to get super nervous and excited....
