Day 15 - Pre-op liquid diet Done! In the can!!! Woot!! (T minus 1 and counting)

I can't believe this day is finally here. Everything feels pretty surreal, but I'm oddly calm. This surgery has been about 2 years in the making from the time my oncologist first mentioned WLS to me. I was dead set against it at first, but like with any addict, I had to hit rock bottom in order to accept that it was time for a change and to permanently break up with crap food and eating huge volume. I've been on a weight loss mission since May of 2017 and as of this morning, I'm still down to 222.4lbs--a loss of 64.6lbs pre-surgery.

I'm not gonna lie. I'm fairly scared. But I'll do fine and get through it and onward through the fog to the losers' bench. I will be grateful to get there! Like with any trip, I'm impatient to reach the destination. Fu*k the journey. LOL. But, I'm mostly impatient to enjoy food again. LOL. Real food. I'm craving my eggs, spinach and mushroom Breakfast like crazy! And turkey sausage crumbles. ha! IKR? All I can think about is a perfect 6 minute - 30 second soft boiled eggs with a 1/2tsp of KG unsalted butter and a steamed asparagus soldier. Crazy right? :) Yeah, still a little food obsessed.

I wasn't supposed to do a bowel prep, but it's been about 4 days since my last visit to the throne. I compromised and instead of my beloved Cherry flavored Mag Citrate sparkling bottle, I took 3/4 dose of MOM. Mission accomplished. Now I'm going to only have full liquids for the remainder of the day. I can have Clear Liquids up until about 5am in the morning. Weird right? We're part of a "new" program testing outcomes of not limiting Fluid until 2hours prior to surgery.

Surgery is supposed to start loosely between 7-9am tomorrow, but we have to be there at 5:30am. :o That means we have to leave here at 4:30am. Which means I have to get up to get ready at 3:30am! Holy fu*k! So, yeah. If you happen to think of me tomorrow, please say a prayer or two that won't be a weenie baby and will finish with flying colors! :D

I got a lot done yesterday:

Laundry done, folded, put away - :821_eight_pointed_black_star:Done!:821_eight_pointed_black_star:

Pork roast and veggies/salads for Mr. F.'s dinner the next 2-3 nights -:821_eight_pointed_black_star:Done!:821_eight_pointed_black_star:

Breakfasts and lunches accounted for him - :821_eight_pointed_black_star:Done!:821_eight_pointed_black_star:

House cleaned and ready for post-op and Cakkie - :821_eight_pointed_black_star:Done!:821_eight_pointed_black_star:

Work Project Part 1 - :821_eight_pointed_black_star:Done!:821_eight_pointed_black_star:

Billing in case I buy the farm during surgery - :821_eight_pointed_black_star:Done!:821_eight_pointed_black_star:

And all I have left to do is:

Pack

Make fresh sf Jello and homemade Protein popsicles

Shave legs

Paint toenails happy orange

Laze around looking lovely and keeping my feet elevated

I'm thinking there will be a lot of time spent hangin' round here today! LOL.

Still waiting, I'm feeling discouraged, wrote in a few posts, started a thread or 2. Hey i wrote in one the other day about pulled pork, I've always had trouble with it although brisket and the rest go Just fine. She b******d me out, said she only wanted to hear from Post Surgery people, like my feet stink or somethin. Bet I never darken her virtual door, it did hurt my feelings. Creek Imp stuck up for me, said I was 72 and only trying to help. Geesh some people!

Fluffer(nutter) - catching up after some time offline. It's here! You've been such a faithful help and inspiration to this community - we're here for you! You, my dear, are going to absolutely ROCK THIS! And I'm in awe of your pre-op broths. I just toughed out my liquid time with Protein Shakes. I love to cook but took the easy way out - wish I'd employed the creativity you have! We'll see you on the other side!

Thank you so much for your sweet note!! ((hugs)) Honestly, on the broth, the low sodium stuff is so bad, I had to get creative without added salt. It was just boxed broth or no sodium bouillon. :) Not a lot of cooking to be had. :D

Update: T minus about 13 hours until I'm higher than a kite and enjoying the ride to a new adventure as a Loooooooosssssssseeeeee-er! hehe. I'm not a dude, but will let Elton sing this lovely background music: Rocket Man for me anyway! :D This journey so far has been a lot like an outer space adventure--new horizons--long trip! :)

Thanks to everyone for your friendship and support! We leave here at 4:30 for a 5:30 check-in. I'll check back in either tomorrow evening or more likely on Wednesday.

Until then, shake the trees and howl at the moon for me won't ya? ;)

MUAH!

XOXO

Fluffy

Blimey! I would say “thoughts and prayers” but it might be too soon... 😂

Instead, I just say “good luck my friend, and may the surgeon me happy, healthy and wise”.
