I was excited to have surgery date of May 28. Saw my surgeon this AM. Surgery moved to June 4. shucks.

But maybe good as my first weekend after surgery would have been over Memorial Day holiday weekend. I would have gone home Friday. So surgeon would be hard to contact if anything went wrong day or two after surgery. So I am okay with another delay. Always trying to see benefit from another delay.

Good for you for looking for a silver lining! Not sure where you are, but Memorial Day weekend in the US is the weekend before, Monday the 25th. I'm having surgery the 28th, so I am happy to have a 3 day weekend before to prep for my family, since I am working from home but have 7 solid hours of educating each day to do. My original date was March 26th, so I was pushed back 2 months. That really sucked so I am hoping nothing happens to create a new delay.

Well, surgery date put back to May 28. I guess with hospital just starting up elective surgeries, they are coordinating Operating Room, anesthesia and surgeon schedules. So happy back to May 28. Start clear liquid diet in 4 days.

So we will have same surgiversary. You start clear liquid diet Friday? I'm watching YouTube videos about Clear Liquids. I have infuser water bottle so like idea of putting in frozen fruit for flavoring. And putting sugar-free Jello mix into iced tea or add to popsicle mix. Mio and Crystal Light for flavoring Water.

Yay! Nice, it's always fun to have someone on the same schedule. Thursday is the first day of my diet, actually. I don't have a clear liquid diet except for the last day before surgery, for the rest, it's a milk diet. Three 20 ounce servings of milk or a milk alternative, low sodium broth, and 50 ounces of sugar free low cal (10 or less) drinks or flavored water a day. I drink 120 ounces of Water a day, so that part isn't hard. The liquid diet sucks, and I get dizzy a lot, but I did a week before without cheating so I know I'll manage. The most annoying part is cooking for the family and not being able to taste test the food though, since I don't really use recipes. I have to call the hubby or kids in to make sure the sauces and stuff are good or if they need more seasoning, lol.
