72 hours from now, I'll be getting my band! I honestly thought I'd be more excited...but at this point, I am so flippin hungry, I just want it so the hunger goes away!
My pre-op diet seems to be different than most of you, as it's not a liquid only. I thought that would make it easier since I'm allowed unlimited plain broccoli, cauliflower, celery, dill pickles, broth, sugar free jello and sugar free popsicles. I was sure the broccoli and celery would help me feel full since they are high fiber foods. They don't and honestly, plain broccoli and cauliflower are gross! But I sure do love them with some ranch...but can't have that. *sigh*
I did go grocery shopping last night to prepare for the post-op phase. I still have the Amplify and EAS protein shake powders. So I got some diet Lipton Citrus Green Tea, I founds some diet Ocean Spray Cran-Blueberry Pomegranate juice, lots of yogurt (thanks Carmen for getting me hooked on the Yoplait Cinnamon Roll flavor...it's what's for breakfast! LOL), sugar free jello, sugar free popsicles, sugar free fudgecicles, chicken broth. I was looking for black bean soup I could puree but didn't find any. I saw other soups that sound good, but didn't think they would puree thin enough. What other full liquids do you bandsters recommend....I know I'm going to want things that seem like "real" food, which was why I was on the hunt for some black bean soup.
I'm not really feeling anything in regards to the surgery. Perhaps it's because it's been overshadowed by Kazak's current situation. I also have pseudo-family coming into town on Tuesday, so I will be cleaning frantically Thursday before surgery and praying Munchkin and Monster don't destroy the house before Tuesday....hahahaha fat chance!
Well, that's it for today....I'm off to make my morning protein shake to try to stave off the fierce hunger and growling going on in my tummy!
