Night before my trip to the castle tomorrow. Have to be there by 11am too for surgery at 3.30. Just want it over with now. I found the rest has been the best thing for the nausea from the bowel prep same as Marilyn found. Good luck Marilyn. Although your list date is 25th sounds like we will be going under round the same time with the time differences. I will try to post again in the morning before I leave. If I don't get to it, then good luck everyone having their trip to the castle this week (and those beyond). Looking forward to hearing how everyone went on the post op board. I have been told I will be in the castle for at least 3 days so don't worry if you don't hear from me. Thanks again for all the good wishes and support. I am absolutely certain I would be a screaming basket case by now if it weren't for all of you. You are all magnificent.

Castle Day is HERE

This is the BIG DAY I've been waiting for sisters! WOO HOO!!! It's finally here. I had a great sleep, and didn't need my happy pill (Ativan) afterall. But it was there if I needed it, so that helped me feel secure. I slept 8 hrs. after listening to my relaxation CD.

I'm not nervous like I thought I would be. Just excited that this is the day to FINALLY get this show on the road.

I feel positively skinny after 2 days of clear liquids only; not hungry a bit. Not even missing my coffee.

Thanks for all the sisterhood. I think I would have been a scared rabbit without all of you. Now I can go to the castle with a smile on my face, and a brave heart, knowing all my sisters are with me in spirit.

My best to all of you for smooth surgeries, quick healing, and renewed spirits.

I can't wait to use my pink princess wand. My husband is going to love it!

Oh My!! I can't beleive they have a best wishes posting with our names on it already!!! It's really weird being this close. I just got back from the castle. I had to go in this morning and give them blood to type and cross and preregister. Oh, yeah, and sign my life away.

IT'S SO CLOSE!!!! I'm actually excited today! I'm sure that will change later, but it's nice for now!!!

Have a great day ladies!!!!

One more day after today. We have been counting down for so long. I can't believe it's almost here. Didn't we start counting at 35 or something like that? (my 27th sisters).

I spent most of today cleaning. I washed floors and sheets and cleaned bathrooms. Not sure why I'm doing all of that I know by the weekend everything will be a mess. I have to clean constantly around here it seems to keep it clean. At least it will start out clean.

i'm not sure exactly when we started counting down, but I think you are right - it was in the 30's. I've been trying to clean today but I haven't gotten very far. I had a couple of different errands I had to run and I have a couple more still to do. I'm saving the deep cleaning for tomorrow night. My kids will be gone so my house will actually still be clean when I get back.

I know I'll be on tomorrow, and I plan on posting early Thursday morning before I leave. We are almost there!!!!
