And then there was one

This is it.  This is the day before the big event.  The day before it all happens and makes me whole.  To be honest, I feel very much in an emotional flux today, kind of like a sensory overload.  All the emotions and feelings that have been with me are in the background, and I’m relaxing slowly.  Everything that needed doing is done, and all I have to do is hang on for the journey now.

Admittedly yes, my routine today has been somewhat different from normal.  Without that first mug of coffee, I don’t know how I managed to get going, but I did!  The first sachet of Picolax was taken within plenty of time, and that has worked already.  I didn’t quite what to expect from that, but oh my….I’ll leave that to my readers vivid imaginations!!

I think the only hard thing I am finding today, as I said to Eric and Dave, is *not* eating.  I’ve been doing Slimming World since February, and they encourage you to eat, and to eat the right things.  However, with the bowel prep needed in preparation for tomorrow, I have a very limited list of what I can eat, and at what times I am allowed to eat and drink.  So yes, it was very very hard to resist sneaking that little bit of beef off of the plate whilst preparing lunch.  You never know, I could even come out of all this with a weight loss, something which wouldn’t be expected over Christmas!

The rest of the day seems easier though.  One more picolax between 2 and 4, and supper between 7 and 9pm, and then that is it.  Well, barring the fluids I must keep drinking.

So, hopefully the next time I post my blog, the operation will be over and done with.  Fingers crossed!!
