Well, I'm home! Everything went well according to the surgeon. I cannot put weight on my foot for two whole freakin' weeks, though!! Ugh! Worse than I thought but I'm sure I'll survive.
When I got up this morning I was shocked to see my blood sugar was "normal" (for me). I was afraid it was going to be insane due to my meal and drinking last night. I guess I did better than I thought! Calorie wise I'm sure it wasn't too good but at least my sugars were okay.
This morning I also took some meds that the anesthesiologist said I could take and that was it. No food or water from 7:30AM until after surgery. Then just a few sips of Sprite Zero. Once I was released I was starving!! On the way home DH and I stopped at Chick-fil-A and I got a grilled chicken sandwich and coleslaw. I figured it wouldn't hurt since I didn't have breakfast - and nothing to cook at home real fast that would qualify as even remotely healthy eating. LOL.
I did well with supper, too. Grilled chicken left over from the weekend cookout, peas and cucumbers. So ... looks like day one went well. Only 13 more to go! *sigh*
I want to thank everyone for all the good vibes, prayers, thoughts and general well wishes sent my way! They have really helped more than you know! :) I really don't think I could have gotten though this ordeal without you guys! You all ROCK my socks off!!!
