Surgery Bumped/4 weeks of opti

on 2/6/18 11:10 am

My surgery was supposed to be February 20th, but I just got a call that it's being bumped to February 27th because of an emergency surgery.

That means another week of opti (which the hospital is arranging to give to me for free since it's not my fault).

But it's a whole other week.

I won't lie. I cried.

I can do this. I will do this. But for today, it just sucks.

I agree, that sucks! I would have cried too.

But I promise you, one day a few months from now you are going to look back on this and think of it as just a blip.

Hang in there. In a month, three months, a year... it'll be a distant memory.

You've got this Katie. Your liver is going to be super skinny for your surgery. I know you've waited a long time to get to this point, but use that extra week to sort all of your current clothes into sizes, because you are going to start donating those larger sizes in no time. Big hugs.

Oh no!!! That's really crappy, I'm sorry to hear that! It's a fear of mine and I'm sad for you that you're experiencing it. This optifast is no treat either! Thinking of you.'s your party, you can cry if you want to!

So sorry to hear, I'd be really upset to, my surgery is the 26th and the thought of having to do Opti an extra week, would make me cry to. Good luck and persevere, this too shall pass.
