My surgery is tomorrow, December 17th, too. I have been on the liquid diet for only 3 days. It seems like other people have been on a pre-op diet longer. Also, I just found this site last night and joined. However, in the app form of the site, I am not sure how to post without quoting someone first. I don't see any simple comment button like on Facebook.
Also, I have four children ages 2 to 10. My ten and eight year olds are really anxious. It's difficult because we wanted them to know that this was serious, but how do you get them to understand that without freaking them out...I don't know. :-(
