Tomorrow is my Big Day!!

In less than 24 hours I will be one of you...a bandster! I didn't think I would be nervous at all...but I am!!  The Rockstar has always said if sleeping was an olympic event I would be a gold medalist...but not last night. I tossed and turned all night.

I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 am. The hospital is almost an hour away so we will be leaving here at 4:30...is it legal to be up that early??? I don't have to spend the night in the hospital, so I really don't have anything to pack.

I know I said I wasn't going to have that "last" meal...but my mother made me. I think in her mind I will never be able to eat again. Here is how our phone convo went down:

Mama: I am taking you out to eat tonight.

Me: Mama, I really don't need to go out to eat. I have done so well on the pre op diet I don't want to mess it up.

Mama: Well you gotta eat, and since they are gonna starve you to death after today I think you need to eat.

Me: Mama, I am not gonna starve to death. Have you seen my ass lately??? I got enough in reserve to last me for a long time. I really think I just need to stick to the pre op diet.

Mama: OK, I will pick you up 6:30...see ya then, love you,  Bye.


I told you, us southerners think they have to show love with food...even if the person is about to have weight loss surgery. I knew this was my mother's way of just showing she loved me...so I went and ate a salad. I brought the entree home for the Rockstar to eat...better it go on his ass than mine.

When I got home The Rockstar and I went to the grocery store to get the stuff I would need for next week. I didn't take a list with me, so I am sure I probably forgot something...

I am so excited for you! From the looks of your pic you look pretty set! I would get some GasX chewables too. Also some low cal Gatorade/Powerade. You are gonna be soooo thirsty after surgery.
