I Hate Fasting for No Reason

So here I wait in the hospital bed, all hooked up to IVs and absolutely starving.

My procedure was set for 9am, then a few weeks ago moved to 12. Then today it was shifted to 4 and since arriving to 6. And of course last night when I had my pre-op phone interview no one knew it would be so delayed so I was told not to eat anything past midnight. So now, about 19 hours since my last meal (steak, broccoli, creamy mashed potatoes, and a caesar salad from Cafe Bernardos) I am absolutely staaaaaaaarving.

And everywhere I look people are eating. My mom even had the nerve to ask the nurse where she can get something to eat, right in front of me! Then they had a nice 5 minute conversation about all the delicious eateries around the hospital.

Kill me know, all I want is a slice of buttery toast. Okay, maybe a whole loaf.

The good news is that my nurse put my IV in my upper arm instead of my elbow so it doesn't hurt at all.

I guess I will read more of my book, Bill Bryson's The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid.

Ugh! Sorry not eating (on purpose) is the worst! Because I was high risk I couldn't eat at the hopsital until after sammy was delivered (so I ate a lot before we left) but oh my goodness I was starving!!!!
Thinking of you and I was actually just thinking about how it all went for you and how you were doing
