Surgery Tomorrow - Last post for now

My RNY is tomorrow morning and I just had my past Optifast EVER.  2 weeks of Opti and 18 lbs gone already.  I'm nervous about tomorrow and sad that I have to leave my family for a few days, but at the same time elated that it's finally Surgery Day.   I'm freaking out that I don't have what I need when I get home! 

I spent today with my husband and kids, put up my Christmas lights outside and had a good cuddle with my 6 yr old before he went to bed.  

I settled with my employer, so no longer getting fired for taking time off from the hospital for my surgery.  When I say settled, I mean my lawyer said, ahem, you can't fire her.....and they said no problem.  Quite a change of heart when the threat of legal action is there......it's been very stressful and I am pretty discusted by the way they've treated me over the last two months.  When I left Friday, I was still on their schedule to work. Brutal. 

THEY are behind me and the rest of my life with my awesome family is ahead!!  Wish me luck!!
