D-30 off to France in a few hours...

It's been almost a week I haven't written a thing. The operation is getting closer. I received my welcome pack with all the information about my pre operation diet and It is gonna be very hard:

breakfast: 1-2 eggs with no butter (omelette, scrambled, boiled or poached) OR 1 slim fast shake
Lunch : Clear consomme soup (made from 1-2 oxo or knorr cubes)
Dinner: One piece of grilled or steamed chicken or white fish or quorn
AND 5 portions of fruit and vegetables a day.

This is going to be hard. I am starting on Monday 8th February... but I am very motivated.

I was very busy this week in work so I am happy to be on holidays for 2 weeks. I am really going to enjoy them. I am flying to France very early in the morning from Dublin so have to take the bus down to there in the middle of the night.

I've had a very lazy day and still haven't finished packing. from tomorrow it will be less than 30 days to the operation, I am very excited but starting to be a bit scared. on my list of things to bring to the hospital they gave me you need to bring a night dress, i only have very short ones or pyjamas. are pyjamas not allowed?

I wish you all a good week end.


  1. I wore pj bottoms. I think..I can't remember! YES i did! THey were soft and comfy. They are probably just worried about the waist band.

    Have fun! I can't wait to hear more!

  2. Hi Julie!! I found your blog through Kristen. I am so excited for you and "Sammy"! I am looking forward to following your journey. I started blog recently as well...
