Three weeks from today, I will be sleeved and in my hospital room. It’s been awesome to see the progress Eddie has made-80 pounds down in the two months since his surgery! But, I would be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous! I start my pre-surgery diet one week from today, which may be what I’m most nervous for! I know that after surgery I won’t physically be able to eat much, but prior to surgery, the idea of having just 700-800 calories a day is daunting. Obviously it can be done, and I will do it, but I imagine there will be much crankiness. And probably some frustrated tears.
Of course there are also some nerves about surgery, simply because I’ve never had surgery at all, so the unknown is somewhat scary, but it will all be worth it in the end! Seeing Eddie’s progress has been reassuring that it will pay off, but until then I will deal with the butterflies!
