gearing up for tomorrow

Doing bowel prep today (oh joy), got my bag packed, phone number list ready for hubby to contact people, got place for my son for the day. I'm getting a little bit anxious.

I know that's normal, just looking for a little bit of support, yanno?

Re: gearing up for tomorrow

So I am doing bowel prep, and all that is on TV, it seems are food commercials. I'm into my 2nd half gallon of Crystal Lite and about to send the hubby our for sugar free popsicles.
A friend is posting recipes on FaceBook and I keep asking her if she delivers. She won't drive from Louisiana to Indiana, not even for me!!!!
Then my husband sat down next to me with a plate of pizza. Would I have been justified in smacking him? :-))

Re: gearing up for tomorrow

I hope you can relax and realize your surgery will go fine. My prep only calls for four laxatives, 64 ounces of Gatarade mixed with 238 ounces of Miralax. I am sure it will do a number on me, but I hope to be clean as a whistle. My big day is 11/7 if all goes well. But I wish you the very best, and you as I said will be fine. And did you not know that it seems we always get thirsty when we cannot have liquid, and hungry when we cannot eat food. This is true when we are facing surgery. I plan on not cooking the night before my surgery because I know it will be an horrible with the tasting.

I made my husband do all the food prep today. I stayed out of the kitchen as much as possible. I too, am clean as a whistle!!!

Am in bed now, all showered and clean, trying to relax.

Re: gearing up for tomorrow

I have purchased my prep already and have placed it on my closet shelf. The only thing I think I should get is maybe some smoothing wipes. I read in another post that this works better than tissue paper. Best wishes to you all.
