...1...(part uno)

SO THIS IS IT!! The day before my surgery! :D I wanted to post this before anything happens to start my count down over again. But that WILL NOT HAPPEN! (hint hint Karma!)

Today is rough though, I'm not going to lie. I got a whole 4 hours of sleep. I had to wake up at 7am to start taking my bowel cleanse pills. After an hour of those (4 pills every 15 minutes) I tried to lay back down to get in some sleep before they took effect. But for some reason these pills are making me seriously nauseous this time around. Last time they didn't. I feel like I'm fighting to not throw them all up. The "cleanse" part isn't even that bad, honestly. My tummy isn't all crampy and in pain. I just know when I have to excuse myself to the loo and then it just takes care of itself. No effort on my part really. But this nausea...ugh! That is killing me. I'm trying to stay hydrated but I feel water logged, like the water itself is making me sea sick. And obviously I can't take any Pepto, that would be counter productive. Oh well. It's worth it to be ready for surgery tomorrow.

I saved up some stuff to do today so that I'm not sitting around here waiting all day for tomorrow to get here. So I'll be posting a 2nd post today with the results of one of those tasks.

In other news, I got my Click protein samples in the mail yesterday :) yay! I can't wait to try them in a couple weeks. It's too late now, I'm on clear liquids only for a while. I can't even eat my messed up ice cream from last night :/ Oh well.

Alrighty kiddos, I'm going to go eat some SF Popsicles and get going on my list :) See you in a few hours!


  1. Oh Stephanie.....I'm so excited for you! Hope your nausea has gone breaks;-(

  2. Sending all the good healing vibes i can for tomorrow. I am sooo excited for you!!!!

    As far as the clear liquids go, every surgeon is different. Mine only had me on clear in the hospital and sent me home on a full liquids diet (anything that can fit through a straw) I also found super helpful post-op diet advice on Dinas blog ( )
