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!!
Good luck!! Saving you a spot on the bench :)
