Any MAY sleevers???



Recommended Posts

Just back from an event filled all weekend wedding in Montreal where I couldn't eat anything that was served because of pre op diet but was able to work around it with scrambled eggs at the hotel in the AM, Protein Drinks, veggies and Water. Glad to be home. Lots to do before surgery this Thursday 5/3/18. For all those going before me or close to me, I'm thinking of you all and hoping we all get through the surgery just fine.

@ Frustr8 : most of us Aussies do love our vegemite, but we would never eat a spoonful of it like we would Peanut Butter. A jar of vegemite lasts a long time because you only use a really small amount of it, like 1/2 a teaspoon spread/scraped across a piece of buttered toast. Then it is slightly salty deliciousness (but being a yeast extract, I had to mostly avoid it anyway because glutemates like MSG and yeast extract trigger headaches for me).

Twas the night before surgery, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring... except the mummy who still has ten million things to do before she goes to hospital in the morning!

I've finished all the food prep and instructions for the hubby to keep both the children and Guinea pigs alive in my absence.

Still need to clean and put new bedding in Guinea pig cage, need to Water my recently planted seedlings/seeds (rain expected Thursday so this watering tonight then rain should carry them through), pack my hospital bag, shower, and try to sleep :)

I’m doing the same. Casserole and Bolognese in fridge. Instructions all over the fridge. I even laid out my 3 yr olds clothes for next 3 days according to the weather with a post it on indicating the day for each pile. I might be slightly micro managing but anyone who has let hubby dress kids knows they will put them in all sorts of clashing patterns and colours given half a chance😀

i will be on the morning list tomorrow as am fasting from midnight tonight. I’m having plenty of fluids now as there is nothing worse than dying of thirst but not able to have a drink due to fasting. Will have to be up at 5am so I can get myself organised before I wake kids to get to hospital by 7am.

i am now worrying a bit about the gas pain post op and nausea which I’m very prone to. I will be asking the anaesthetist for lots of antiemetics to hopefully prevent vomiting(fun times)

Good luck tomorrow For all the May 2nd sleevers (I think May 1st if you are in USA or UK) ☘️☘️☘️

My son will be flying over shortly . He has a container of chili, another of lasagna, one of au gratin potatoes, a package of beef baking a and an arrow taped to floor pointing his way to the microwave. Wait until I tell him about chicken Vindaloo and. Bolognese, he may not even require a plane, he might just start wading!
Smiles and super smooth surgeries is my prayer for both of you👉😝👈

Regarding post op gas, I read someplace on this site (I think) that Gas X type medications can only help with air trapped in the digestive tract and that we'll also have air trapped in our torso from the surgery. What was recommended by someone that worked well for them is activated charcoal. I did some research and got from Amazon Bulletproof brand Coconut charcoal. My research suggests that charcoal from coconut is the best. The other thing I found out while researching is that the charcoal will also eliminate anything taken within two hours of taking it from your body, including medications and Vitamins. If you chose to try it, just be careful about that.

We are here in the waiting area at hospital. Hubby is feeling a little nervous for me, I think I'm still feeling ok, confident that my surgeon knows his stuff.

      TOMORROW IS MY DAY!
      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

      2. Krestel

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
