Final Call

Leave a comment

This is NOT a photo of me.

I just got off the phone with Avera Queen of Peace Hospital in Mitchell, SD. My final phone call that allowed me to ask any questions before motoring there tomorrow morning. I had a few. And the kind lady answered them all.

It’s now hitting me that THIS IS REALLY HAPPENING!!!! I’ve been kind of in a blurr since April 12th when my mom and I first met up with Dr. Haley.

Fast forward to today, June 26th … I have one Optifast protein shake, two bars and one packet of soup left to consume before midnight. Then I have successfully completed my two-week pre-surgery diet!!! I apologize for being such a baby while on it. I really should never have complained but I have never just stopped eating my favorite foods before like that and it was really hard. And I’m trying to just be super honest on this blog about my daily trials and tribulations on the quest to get healthy once and for all.

Tomorrow, my mom will be picking me up at 0515 and it’ll take us an hour to drive to Mitchell. I am to be checked in at the admission desk by 0630 and my surgery will be at 0800. I’m the first on the list. I love being first … everyone will be wide awake and ready to go! So please pray for me or think happy thoughts. Or rub a rock or something like a rabbit’s foot for me. I shall be forever thankful and grateful.

My 8-year quest of being BANDED finally happened on June 27, 2012!!! While it will be nice to shed some pounds, my number one goal is to get HEALTHY ... And to get off ALL my diabetic meds and not have to rely on my CPAP at night and for naps. A few years back I made a decision to only surround myself with positive people and I have never looked back. At times I may be snarky perhaps a little wonky and I will apologize right now if I offend anyone as I blog about my life as I know it. Peace & love to all of my wonderful supporters.
