Surgery tomorrow

I wont lie and say I am a little nervous, spent the day on clear liquids and took some anti biotic which gave me a really bad stomach cramps. Ended up eating a half a PB&J because the meds said take with food and helped with the cramps. Sitting here drinking 64oz or Gatorade and miralax which is making me feel like puking and doubt I will finish it but made it through 3/4 of it. So waiting for that to kick in LOL

Wish I was going to the hospital instead of noon tomorrow. That's going to be the longest wait ever!!!

Hope your surgery goes well and that you have a speedy recovery. Let us know how it went when you're feeling up to it. Get as much sleep as you can. Very difficult in the hospital I know, but I slept often after my resection, guess it was mainly the pain medication. It'll all be over before you know it. We're always here if you get bored as well.
