                                          Tomorrow is the Big Day!

So I missed a couple of days blogging.  We have been having internet problems and hopefully that is all behind us now!

So I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 am tomorrow for my 7:30 am surgery.  I am not a morning person so the sooner they put me under anesthesia so I can sleep, the better :)  Seriously, I am really not nervous at all.  I have had quite a few surgeries in my life so for the most part I know what to expect.  I was pleasantly surprised earlier this evening when I received a phone call from a Dr. Gardner who said he will be my anesthesiologist tomorrow and he wondered if I had any questions.  I have never had a call from one of the docs involved in a surgery before.  I am more and more impressed with Parker Adventist Hospital the more I deal with them. 

Today was Day 7 of the liquid diet.  For those of you who are pre-op, it really wasn't that bad.  I highly recommend that you add broth and sugar free jello to your regime.  I didn't the 1st two days because I didn't understand that I could have them on this phase.  When the dietitian in the doc's office told me that I was very happy and it helped so much!

Well, I am going to log off and get ready for the big experience!  I'm sure it will be a while before I get back on here but I will have lots to share!
