Things are moving in the right direction

Tuesday, October 08, 2013

I was supposed to have today off, so I got up and went for a walk. It was later than normal (I could not for the life of me fall asleep last night), so I only went out for a half hour. Came home showered, made coffee. Then the phone rang...work needed me, so in I went.

Luckily, my boss was able to cover me at the end of the day so I didn't miss my call from the transplant coordinator. She called, later than I expected, and we spoke for about 40 minutes. I was worried that some things from my past might stop me from donating, so it was good to speak to someone.

She's going to mail (and send?) the stuff I need to start doing the lab tests. Luckily, I don't have to go down there until further along in the process. I am NOT a person who enjoys driving, let alone in the big city! She also told me that they will now pay for 1 night in a hotel when I do come down...awesome!

Food wise, I am trying to keep this process in the forefront of my mind. I caved in last night and ate 4 mini brownies (oh, how I love them). Luckily, I didn't go over my calorie limit, so it's all good. In my mind, I bought the brownies on Sunday to see if they would be worth taking to an office function on Thursday. Who am I kidding! I wanted to eat them myself! At this point, I will have to get more for the party. I wanted to bring fruit, but someone else already has that covered.

I may just drop them off at my other job tomorrow, so they aren't taunting me from the kitchen!

Have a great day everyone!

    It isn't just the mini-brownies that's the problem, your body needs mega nutrition which is zip in the brownies. Take very good care of yourself right now so that your recovery is easier. It's tough enough to go through major surgery.
