In just a little over 14 hours my surgery begins...I've been on a liquid diet for the last two weeks in preparation, and have lost 16 pounds...Today I was on clear liquids and only consumed 275 calories...I know that's a really low number but all I was able to have was chicken or beef broth, sugar free jello, sugar free popsicles, and hot tea for each of my 4 meals...Nothing to eat or drink after midnight and have to be at the hospital at 10am...I should only be in the hospital until Wednesday or Thursday.

My parents are driving my husband and me to the hospital...we have to leave the house at 8am because it is an hour and 20 minute drive...hope we don't hit too much traffic during rush husband has decided he will stay with me for the few days...I'll have a private room so him being there should not bother anyone

I am a bundle of nerves and excitement...I can not wait for my new life to start...this surgery is the new beginning that I have needed for so long and only recently decided I'm worth it.

Thank you all for reading...I will post an update as soon as I am able to post-op emoticon
