Got my vicodin and I'm ready to roll!!!

Okay, everyone....I've been trying. Really. Hard. to get my emails all answered. I have 76 unread emails and I just can't get to them all before I go into surgery tomorrow.

Thank you SO much for all the great emails and voicemails! Y'all are so sweet, so thoughtful and I'm definitely feeling the love!

So, thank you and sorry I wasn't able to get back with everyone! I'll do my best to have JD call or update...but really, I won't hold my breath. :-) You shouldn't either. Just teasing.

Well, not really.

AFTER the surgery, remind me to tell you about how I thought it would go tomorrow. That probably doesn't make sense to anyone....but it will.

Love y'all.

....by the way, how is it that when the doctor tells you not to eat or drink anything after midnight, you all of the sudden get stupid cravings and cotton mouth at the last minute? What's that all about!?

It makes sense to me, and believe me, I'll remind you :).

Sending up prayers for you!

You still have 39 minutes to satisfy your craving! Go girl go!

Good luck!

Its the worst when you are told that and then you suddenly feel desperate for it! I think thats partly why diets that completely ban certain foods tend to backfire more often than not. (ha ha, like I know how to diet appropriately.)

I can't wait to hear it all went well. Good luck today. Let me know if you need ANYTHING at all!!

Love ya!

OK, I'm glad I didn't e-mail you last night. It occured to me at about midnight that your surgery was today (well, tomorrow, it wasn't quite midnight). Praying for you!!!

rachel, i am praying for you!

i totally know what you are talking about. i used to eat something big (like a steak or a pizza) at midnight...you know to fight off the cravings. then, i'd have jeff run to whatever place was open and get me something as soon as i could eat again.

GOOD LUCK!!!!

I'm certainly thinking of you cuz! Hope all is going well and I can't wait to hear all about it.

As for that "no eating or drinking after midnight" stuff... we've all been there. Just knowing you can't have something makes you want it all that much more. We're so good at mentally torturing ourselves, aren't we? lol

Anyway, lots love and prayers to you...

Thinking about you this morning! Can't wait to hear how it all goes!

Hope you're feeling great already!

Make sure to reward yourself (as soon as you feel like it!) for no eating after midnight!

Good thoughts and prayers to you.

Ooooooooh PRAYING for you!

We both have "JD"s for hubbies. Love that.

Oh and I'm so there with you on the cravings after midnight when you're not supposed to eat anything. Hate that!

Hope everything goes well!
