Surgery tomorrow.....finally:)
mindyj1971 posted:
Hello all! I have just started my wonderful prep for tomorrow's surgery. Man, this is definitely the worst part! I'm using MoviPrep this time....I've never had this before. Hope I never need it again! Ugh....lemon-lime flavor....I didn't even get to choose a flavor:( I will never be able to drink Sprite or 7-UP again!
I have to be at the hospital at 8:15 tomorrow morning and surgery is scheduled for 11:00.
I'm nervous and excited all at the same time. So glad that it is finally here. Just wanna be done now:)

Thank you all for your continued support and well wishes! It truly does mean the world to me. Hope to be back on here in a couple of days:)

Love to all!

Why no 7-UP again? I drink Diet Coke all the time, even though I wish I could quit drinking it.

Good luck, Mindy! You're in my thoughts.

You're the best and we all know you will come through this with flying colors. And I understand what you mean about not wanting to drink 7 up or Sprite again. I felt that way after my colonoscopy prep over two years ago and I still can't stand even the smell of either one of them. I have somewhat of a sensitive stomach that way anyway.

We love you and are thinking of you every single minute. Prayers are with you. God bless. Look forward to hearing from you. Many, many hugs!
