Well, I'm starting to get things in order for my trip to Mexico for the Sleeve surgery. I got a pre surgery diet. I was surprised that it's only for one week prior to surgery. It's mostly a high protein and low fat/carb diet. I think I'm going to start a low calorie diet several weeks before and then switch to the doctors diet one week before surgery. That way I'll have a little jump start on my weight. It would be nice to be down 10 or 15 lbs before surgery.
Hubby and I went to get our passports yesterday. We'd been meaning to get them for some time but just kept putting it off. It cost us almost $400 to process them quickly. Not cheap. Oh well, nothing we can do at this time. Dr. Aceves office did tell me that we could still cross the boarder without them as long as we had proof that we had applied for them, but I didn't want to take any chances.
I'm starting to purchase some of the protein drinks I'm allowed to have the weeks after surgery. I've also sent off for samples from two different places. Might as well start trying them out to see what I like and don't like. The doctors office suggested having all those things in place before having surgery so that I can just rest when I get home and not have to worry about buying supplies. I think that's a good idea.
The last couple of weeks I've been dreaming of the surgery almost every night. I think it's a combination of being excited and nervous at the same time.
Hope everyone is doing well.
