Pre-Op Diet: Day 1
Feb 22, 2021
Today I started my pre-op diet to prepare for my revision surgery. So far, so good; I'm excited & nervous. It's not like I haven't done this before but the nerves are still there. My emotions are all over the place though; I have a son who was born with a severe heart condition called HLHS. His cardiologist tells me the he needs to be scheduled for a procedure March 3rd with an overnight stay in the hospital, 5 days before my surgery. Of course, my son's needs ALWAYS come first & part of me feels bad for even thinking about doing anything for myself at this moment. My anxiety is on 1,000 right now. I've waited SO long for this but my son & the condition of his heart take priority over my needs/wants.
