Hey all!

I'm still here. finished the writing project I was working on and I'm in a "wait and see" situation on that for now.

Have some new ideas trying to percolate their way up to my attention. However, as I get closer to my surgery date I find it difficult to keep from focusing on anything but it. I have to be honest, I'm scared and anxious. I've never had surgery before. I've never been under anesthesia like this before.

Everything looks good. I had my preop appointments on the 17th and my labwork all came back great! My blood sugar, cholesterol, vitamin levels, etc..all good. My EKG was good. I even blew my weight loss mandate out of the water! I needed to lose 6 and I lost 19. :)

What sucks now is I'm on a special diet. It's a liver reduction diet until surgery. :P It consists of a 4-6 special protein shakes a day. I can have broth and I can also have up to 6oz of protein (beef, pork, chicken, or fish) a day as long as it's grilled or baked. Let me tell you's rough. It's also another reason why it's hard for me to think. I'm only getting about 1100 calories a day and I'm hungry! LOL

Anyway..just wanted to let you all know I'm still here. Haven't disappeared again. I'm also committed to keep writing. Now just need to figure out what I'm doing next. The good thing about surgery is I'll have two weeks PTO after and I'll have lots of time at home recovering! Who knows? Maybe I'll be able to start something new then?

Take care!
