If you follow my Instagram you already know that insurance approval came down to the wire. Lots of stress, emails and phone calls ended with one huge sigh of relief yesterday morning.
I’ve been ingesting only clear liquids since yesterday. It’s definitely a blessing that I had work and some prior obligations to keep me distracted from my hunger. I will say that after drinking only low sodium broth, water and coffee for two days, I realize that I DO have strong willpower. I sat on the couch last night with a tray of leftover Halloween candy (full size too!) in front of me on the coffee table and sipped a cup of broth.
I got some more good news today that I WILL be first case tomorrow. I guess it really didn’t hurt to ask. I check into the hospital at 6 a.m. and surgery is scheduled for 7:30 a.m..
Last and most importantly, THANK YOU. I’ve had so many well wishes and feel very loved. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. Keep me in your thoughts tomorrow.
