Well tomorrow is my Colectomy. I feel ready but still do not believe it is real. I don't feel super excited or scared for the surgery as I thought I would. I don't feel a whole lot other than sadness for having to leave my baby girls. I know each person's results are different but I am also scared of being "normal" it has been so long since I have been normal. I know that doesn't make sense. Just please keep me in your thoughts,especially for the prep:)
ETA: This is day 3 of a liquid diet and with the laxatives my tummy looks like it hasn't looked in forever!
