48 hours and counting down ...

If all goes as planned, 48 hours from now I will be undergoing orthognathic surgery. I started to come down with a cold/sore throat on Thursday, and Friday I was feeling pretty rough. I couldn't stay home to fight it off because I have so much to get wrapped up at work. Yesterday, I stayed home all day and started to feel better, and today my congestion is much better, my throat a little sore but I am optimistic I am going to kick this. I am so frustrated I got sick, I haven't been sick with a cold or the flu since I started taking my pharmaceutical grade vitamins a year ago. I guess since I had to go off the vitamins 14 days before my surgery, and all of the stress I've had with work, my immune system was down. I don't want to have my surgery canceled because of this, I don't know how quickly they would be able to reschedule, and that would really screw things up. So, I am drinking a ton of juices and fluids, trying to flush this bug out of me.

I can't believe it's almost here!!

Already?! Good luck, girl! I'll be watching for your progress and can't wait to see your after pics. I'm still 3 weeks away.

Holy crow time flies like crazy (though maybe that's not quite fair as it's probably much different from where you're sitting!)

The information and planning you've shared with us has been extremely helpful and enlightening for those still planning...I wish you every success throughout the next weeks to come....YAY! No more waiting for you!!

(Figures getting a cold now, eh? Sounds like you've got it on the run though :) )

Will be waiting eagerly to hear you're home, recovering and thrilled with the whole procedure ~take care!

Can't wait to see you on the other side! Even though I won't be able to get online again until the end of the week, I'll be thinking about you while you're in surgery!!!

Wow, you sound like me - I had a sore throat, cough, and runny nose a few days before my surgery. My OS said to drink plenty of fluids (but not 6 hours before surgery). And that was it! I'll be thinking of you as it gets down to the wire. Good luck!
