Just got my date 12/3. A little sad to be on a preop diet for Thanksgiving but we gotta do what we gotta do.

Hospitals here are still closed to visitors. My husband cannot drive me due to work. I’m going to have to rely on my unreliable mother. It’s stressing me out. I know if she doesn’t show/forgets I’ll still get there but I’m a planner and this is not what I planned.

Can you schedule a lyft or uber?

I'm in the same boat. My husband travels for work. My mom says she will come with me, but she is a hit or miss. Anxiety!!!

Hey all! I should have a December date as well. Hoping to have it this week!

My surgery is outpatient, though they can admit if you have issues or complications. I’m kind of glad because I just feel so much more comfortable at home. Basically surgery is in the AM and you stay until the PM and then go home. I’m ready to get this done.

No we don’t have those in my town. If all fails I’ll drive myself down and my husband can figure out the car situation later.

My doctor is doing inpatient ish. He said I’ll stay overnight at least.

What a great idea. Unfortunately we already agreed to Thanksgiving at our house. I think I’ll take a few bites of some stuff. My insurance/PCP don’t follow the liquid diet recommendation but my surgeon does. Guess I’ll mix it up. 😬

My liquid diet starts on Tuesday before Thanksgiving. Im considering starting it a week early, then take a few bites on Thanksgiving only.

      My 3 babies and my little "niece". Took on a babysitting job this past weekend. She is super tiny compared to my 3 biggies. Sitting on command for treat-os!
       
      Pre-op Liquid - Day 2 
      It was very hard today...I'm feeling some type of way from not eating the meals I was supposed to before the pre-op diet. My sister got stuck in Dallas a week before my diet and we were supposed to go on a nice dinner, but that never happened. I have super bad dry mouth and bathroom breaks are more frequent.

      Pre-op Liquid Diet - Day 1
      Had my morning cup of 8 oz Regular Orange Juice. I am ready!!! I did have 3 bites of my fiance's cheesecake last night for dinner. It was so yummy but with my former sleeve it didn't allow me any more bites.
