4 days!

I can't believe it's only 4 days until surgery, aah! Nerves are def. hitting me now and all the bad negative thoughts are coming out. Ugh.

I just want to be on the road to recovery and starting the real journey of it all. I'm not having second thoughts or anything, but def. having thoughts of "what if this doesn't work for me?" or "what if i fuck this up for myself?". I know these are all normal, so I'm okay, just normal pre-op nerves.

I still have to go shopping for my supplies for the clear and full liquids portions of the post-op diet. That'll be 11 1/2 days worth, so hopefully I get enough and don't have to send people on a scavenger hunt. I have my food scale (for later in the process), got my first 2 containers of Unjury all ready to go.

Well, that's all for now since I'm writing this on my phone.

Ciao til next time...


  1. Few ideas. You'll only be on clear liquids for the first day & a half. I would recommend either the GNC isopure, it's clear and it's packed with protein. I didn't like it, but Robyn did.

    Next, get their shakes at the clinic that you can mix w/ 1C of milk and shake. Actually their starter kit that includes one of all their products is about $35 and it's pretty worth it. It has soups and even protein bars for when you get to solids.

    I did not like their fruity clears, but then again it's only 1.5 days of clears.

    Also - get soups that you like (Chunky, Progresso whatever) and put it in the blender and blend until liquid. Then put through a small strainer and heat up and drink your soups.

    Add a bit of unflavored protein too to boost the protein.

    Just a few thoughts.
