Also good luck, all. I think it's strange too about the different eating/drinking requirements. I just finished my last drink of water, exactly at 11:59. I'm having an early surgery & allowed stuff in my system 9 hours away. My last surgery, something else completely different was far worse, no food/drink past midnight & surgery scheduled for 3, then postponed to 5! I was starving!
Anyway, I'll see you all on the flip side. Thanks to all those who have posted before, making this board an inspirational place that has calmed my nerves despite my body not knowing it yet. ;-)
