    Default Tomorrow Is My Surgery!

    Tomorrow at this time, I'll be in the O.R. OMG, it's happening soon!
    I have such a mix of emotions right now and have been laying down most of the day. (Drinking the laxative- -magnesium citrate, 2 bottles, has made me so nauseated, queasy.)
    I'll be sure to post an update as soon as I get home. I don't want to bring my tablet to the hospital.

    LOL, Tamera! I've felt like I've been tortured for 10 days... between the stinky Isopure drinks, and these bottles of magnesium citrate today. My insides are burning!
    Hope I sleep tonight.

    My surgery is scheduled at 12:30 tomorrow afternoon, and they submitted me as "outpatient with observation", (overnight), so I'll probably be stuck there until around early evening on Saturday (from what my doctor's office said.) Thank you for the prayers!
