I have again made it to the weekend with this pre-op diet. It is getting easier and more tolerable. I haven't even thought about looking at the vending machine at work! Today however, we have a staff meeting in which our bosses will be buying in lunch. I wasn't sure how I was going to handle that situation, so I took the afternoon off, so that I could say I had to leave before the eats. It's my birthday and we are heading out of town, so I guess it all works out then.
On the homefront, we are preparing for our trip this weekend. I have all my protein shakes packed and ready to go. I just can't seem to believe that my surgery will be next week.
I have been working really hard to get all of my work ahead before I leave for a couple of days. I have only taken off for Wed (surgery day), Thurs, and Fri. I am planning on going back on Monday if I feel like it. If not I will call in sick I guess. My work is pretty flexible about that. I do however need to work on Tuesday. I have a couple of kids in Court, and my co worker can't seem to handle the workload if I am not there. I am not too concerned though if I am not back, and if I don't feel like it I won't be. I handled 10 kids in Court one afternoon when she was out for gall bladder surgery (for 3 weeks!) without any problems a couple of weeks ago. Guess that just makes me different!
