Yesterday was the Tour of Lasts. My day kicked off at my favorite hole in the wall breakfast joint. I had this awesome bagel sandwich (egg, cheese, bacon, and I swear an entire avocado). We then decided to swing by our local little coffee shop. Oh how I am going to miss coffee. Lucky me, I happened to have a coupon for a free drink. Any drink, any size. So, why just order a 12 oz when I could get a larger size, right?! I tell the barrista I would like the biggest size she had. Little did I know it was a 32 ouncer! Seriously. As you can imagine, with a start to the day like that I wasn't even hungry again until dinner time. Dinner itself wasn't anything too special or exciting. Just homemade pizzas. Making homemade 'za is one of our favorite things to do on a stay-in Saturday night. But, for dessert. . . bellinis! (champagne & peach nectar) Now, normally I'm not a foo-foo kind of gal. I am more of a beer or occasional red wine person. But for the Tour of Lasts I had to go out in style!
Today I am on a full liquid diet and tomorrow is just clear liquids. Joy. Of course, all I can think about is all the food I should have ate yesterday.
Otherwise for how I am feeling, I am incredibly rundown. I can't wait for Tuesday. I just want to get this over with. Today I realized the real purpose of that to-do list I've been battling all week. It was to keep me so busy that I was forced to keep my mind off of the surgery. Ah, lets just say it worked well then.
Tomorrow in the early AM I meet with the ET nurse. There I will get to find out where my new little friend, the stoma, will be residing for the next 3-4 months.
