That is the same approximate time as my OHSU interview, by the way.
Anyway, in the meanwhile, to distract myself from what's not happening yet, I have continued to seek out great blogs from other WLS vets. Right now I am poring through a lovely blog called Attraversiamo, and came across a list (or the reference to a list) of things to bring to the hospital with you. At first (ever the RN) I thought, you don't need to bring ANYTHING, the hospital has all the crap you could need for 1 night. But then I thought of a couple things, wrote them down (in MS One Note, thanks honey) and realized: Whoa, it's real. I'm going to do those things, and actually have surgery, and actually lose weight. And in all likelihood, keep it off.
That's heavy, man.
Here's the list so far:
List of things to take to Good Sam
3. 1 book
7. Picture of hubby
We're gonna make it after all! (with apologies to Mary Tyler Moore)
