Counting down the days.
Come on Monster -
I'm about to have reinforcements
to help me kick your butt!!!!
As of today, only 4 more days, till my life - our lives forever!
My surgery is scheduled to take place at 11 am Monday morning in Little Rockat Baptist Medical Center.
My life will sort of start all over again with a whole new angle and lifestyle. I am so very ready. I have been pumping myself up a lot for this!
I am soooo ready to toss those insulin shots into a tree as hard as I can and then stomp them also.
Will also be so very nice to be taking Vitamins (even if it might be several) that will help my body not polute it with medicine that helps one thing, but hurts others.
Today marks day 11 of the 14 days of Liquid diet that was given to me by Dr. Off and on times it's not fun at all and really tough, but it's so normal now, I think I have it made the rest of the time.
And on a very inspiring note, I started on it weighing 217.8
As of this morning - I weigh 209.2! Yes my dear - single twenties. Woo Hoo to that.
I have also been working on trying to get everything in order. Larry will be with me of course. He's not allowed to leave. lol! Perhaps to go to cafeteria to eat once in a while. haha!
Ashley is taking the week off from work and staying here with Haylee, and our aide for mom will be here during the days.
So think the people are handled. :P
I have saved leftovers here and there so that Larry doesn't really have to cook all that much although he is actually a good cook.
I finished up shopping (I think) with regular price matching stuff, and stocking for them also.
I have all my liquid vitamins and other vitamins, shake mixes, etc all purchased and ready to go also.
There is so much to it over all, but with anything, it will be overwhelming at first, but later be fine.
I even got me a new simple gown to wear hopefully the second day out so it will be sort of normal feeling.
Hair trimmed up, and as my sweetie suggested to make me feel better about this - got new mani w nails and pedi also. Love that!
and Love that man of mine.
I know I am going to soon start the nervous part of all of this - but for now - I am just counting the days and trying to think ahead of anything to make things easier for all the people involved in this.
I plan on just trying to nap. lol! I know they are going to have to see me walk and I am going to do my darnest to do so. But nap in between times. :p
I am scheduled on Monday and should be home on Wednesday - some time during the day.
And of all things, the weather is calling for snow or at least wintery stuff off and on starting Sunday night till Tues night. Ugg.
Would be sort of cool to see some flurries while there, but not knowing it's on the roads. Oh well, just hope Doc is spending the night as he and his associates have 4 of us to work on. lol!
I met a couple of great girls at our Dietian meeting. Some of us had a chance to exchange phone numbers to text. What a hoot.
I guess tata for now. Signing off until next time.
