Happy Belated Halloween, Fall Harvest and Day of the Dead! We had a great weekend, my husband and I, and our young man was out hunting. A mini honeymoon for we parents.
My rant for today. I wish that surgeons would read your file and let you know if there is ANYTHING else you need to do before surgery. Communication is so important in everything you do! So, I get a message from Lindsay (you all remember her..No?). She is the surgery scheduler for Dr. B. letting me know he does, after all, want me to have an ultrasound of my liver. It was 3 months ago that he received the report from the Endoscopy doctor that I may have a fatty liver (which is common amongst fat people according to the internet) but Dr. B. did not indicate that he wanted anything done until now. Two weeks before surgery! I. Could. Just. Scream. Luckily, the diagnostic center can fit me in on the 4th at 7am! Then to a pre-op on Nov. 10th and a visit with my surgeon on the same day, and then WOOHOO surgery day on the 18th!
I did have a visit with the Nutritionist on October 28th. I had to buy all my protein (112 meals!) and all my vitamins for the month. So expensive! But I have to shrink that liver for surgery, so it is money well spent. There is that word again! Liver! I am glad I don’t have to eat it, just ultrasound it. LOL
Until next time friends.
