Pre-op testing at surgery center 6/27 at 1pm..sweet
Pre-op appt with surgeon 7/3 at 12:30...awesome
I'm standing outside the office faxing something and get a voice mail from the surgery center.
"Hi Julie, we have you down for 1pm appointment today and it's now 1:45. Please give us a call if you can make it in today"
WTF?!?! I ran back and checked my paperwork...yep...6/27 1pm... NOT 6/25 1pm.
So I call... Very sweetly I say "I have 6/27 at 1pm written on my notepad from the day we talked."
She said "Right, we scheduled it on 6/27 but then had to reschedule because there wasn't going to be a nurse available."
I felt as though I was either right... or completely and utterly crazy.
She said "I'm sorry I thought I called you."
I said "I don't think so, I didn't get any voice mails or anything"
She said "I'm so sorry, can you come in RIGHT NOW?"
"ummm...uhhhh.... Let me check with my boss"
All I can say is THANK GOD my work is so understanding. I know it's inconvenient and puts them in a bad situation sometimes but they really roll with the punches and understand that shit happens.
I rush out the door and on the road...
Then BACK to work because I left my pre-op paperwork on my desk in the rush.
Make it to surgery center in record time.
The lab guy was about to leave so we rush back and do blood and urine.
Then we get to relax and just talk about the surgery. She gave me crap-ton of information and folders and this and that and the other thing.
PHEW! Glad that's over!
Fast forward to today... the surgeons office calls...
"Due to a scheduling conflict we are going to have to reschedule your appointment"
WTF?!?!?! AGAIN? NURSES BE TRIPPIN!!!
Roll with the punches...
Just keep swimming...
So now my appointment with the surgeon is this Friday. I have to admit I like that better anyways!
Now what I'm sure you all clicked for.... FOOOOOD PPOOOOORNNN!!!
Me and hubs went out for my last meal so to speak.
Fish n' Chips....*drools*
Good frikken choice if I do say so myself. Their coleslaw is to die for...really. With that scrumptous tartar sauce.. oh em gee It was sooo delish.
The Hubs also got me a pre-op gift... I'm so frikken excited about it, I can't wait to rip open the box and weight myself!
The Fitbit Aria Wi-Fi Smart Scale... It automatically
loads your stats to My Fitness Pal..SCORE!
And finally...starting tomorrow this will be my sustenance for 2 weeks. Whooopie!
Is it weird I'm excited about it? I know I will be singing
a different tune pretty quick but it means the
day is getting closer!
Tomorrow starts the first day of the rest of my life. The day I take my health in my own hands and make the changes that will save my life and my health. I'm going to kick ass and take names... i'm gonna be snappin' necks and cashin' checks ... I WILL succeed. This will be war... war on fat... war on bad food choices... war on emotional eating...war on low self-esteem. I'm ready to fight for my health and take it back!
But before I put on the war paint and start this battle.....
Let us eat cheesecake...
