My last appointment went well; I picked up an elliptical machine which my surgeon was glad to hear. He was pretty happy that there are no clothes hanging from it either! We set my final appointment and pre-op for Nov 8th. At that time we'll submit my paperwork to insurance and go over the surgery details. We're aiming for a surgery date of Dec 5. Whoa. I'm so close! I have my pre-op diet checklist and the list of foods I'm allowed to eat for the first few weeks so I need to get my shopping done. I'll be buying tons of canned tuna, chicken breast, turkey breast, and fish to get me through my pre-op! I was kind of hoping to have surgery before Thanksgiving so I'm not tempted to cheat while on my pre-op but no such luck. I've got this!
I did talk with the nutritionist and she told me that I'll be ok with a multivitamin and should supplement with a B12. So there's another item to add to my list. I may just pick up a Bullet for now to blend my shakes. I'd like a Ninja but I'm having trouble justifying the cost. My goal is to buy a house in the next 6 mos so I'm trying to save money where I can.
Two months... amazing. It'll be here before I know it!
