Last night home

Holy moly...it's my last night at home! Surgery isn't for a week and a half, but I'm traveling up to the surgery date, so it's my last night home. I'm in planning mode - making sure I've got everything that I need. So, what have I been doing?

  • Playing with protein powders. I'm sticking with Isopure in the big tubs for now. Just can't best the zero carb + whopping protein. Read more about protein powders on the Supplements page
  • Getting my vitamins sorted out. HINT: TwinLab sells chewable calcium under multiple labels...and one is cheaper than the other! Read more on the Supplements page
  • Applying for short-term disability. If you haven't tried this...you should. It could mean the difference between having to take vacation time from work after surgery, and not! Worked for me for a previous surgery and looks good to do it again
  • Finally finding a therapist and nutritionist that I like. I saw three nutritionists before I found one I liked. A great reminder for me that, if I don't connect with someone, I should keep looking!
  • Deciding who to tell. So far, just one friend and a woman at work. I did tell my bosses that I'll be having surgery, but not what for
