Last Meal

I am having out patient surgery tomorrow.

I visit my doctor yesterday for a pre-operative visit. She proceeds to tell me that my last meal is breakfast this morning.

I smile at her ... waiting for her to laugh at her own little joke.

No laughing.

Seriously?

You've got to be kidding me. One meal is suppose to last me for over 24 hours?

Many things go through my head ... such as - is there something I can eat that will help me feel fuller longer? Sure ... but whatever it is won't fill me up for THAT long.

So, I postpone my "breakfast" for as long as possible, hoping that the feelings of hunger won't return too soon in the day.

For my last meal, I chose pasta, 4 wheat rolls, a banana, Diet Coke and peanut M&M's.

*sigh*
