Congratulations !!!!!

Courage doesn't always roar.
Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying,
"I will try again tomorrow."

Don't forget to order a sample pack of different protein drinks...a variety of flavors is good!

Go Jiggly!! Now, Hands in the air.....

it's only our own perception that tells us
whether or not it's half empty or half full...
it's a Choice!!!

A sample pack of proteins is a great idea... I'm a little late on that one, just ordered mine (honestly, I could just finally afford it! lol)...

Congratulations to you, those popsicles came in and still come in quite handy. Sometimes when I can't think of anything else to eat. I grab a sugar free Dryer's umh umh popsicle.

Ditto what the others said about ordering a sample pack of protein drinks. I got mine from vitalady and it was really helpful to try them out beforehand. I found that milk-based protein drinks were my personal favorite! Keep in mind, though, that many people become lactose-intolerant post-op, so your favorites pre-op may not be tolerated after your surgery.

I'm excited for you...congrats again!
