I am so happy to report that I got the call yesterday and my one on one's that were initially scheduled for late July have been moved up to next Tuesday February 13th, 2018. I am so freakin' excited and nervous all rolled into one. So much is running through my head right now like what is I say the wrong thing and they discharge me? Or what if they ask me a question from the forms I filled out prior to orientation and and answer it differently now? Oh my...

You will be fine, just read your materials and make sure you can identify the parts they are rearranging and how. Also that your most important nutrient after surgery is protein. Good Luck!

If they ask you a question that you don't know the answer to, just tell that you are so nervous that your brain has gone completely blank. ;)

The appointment is not a test! You will do just fine, they will not discharge you, and you will find yourself at the doors to the OR faster than you know it!
