Just a quick update. I'm leaving in the morning at the crack of dawn to head back home from this visit with my sister and her family. A final weigh-in this morning brings my total weight loss while here to 13 pounds. I'm feeling good. Had a few more rough days but mostly I'm used to this liquid diet and it's filling me up. I just have to keep myself entertained so I don't think about food. I'm kind of wanting my husband to notice a difference when he sees me come off the plane, but in reality, I don't think he will since I don't really see it, even though I can feel it and clothes are getting looser and fitting better. Today I also took my first shot of liquid Vitamin K. This I had to mix with a bit of orange juice and I have another to take 2 days before surgery. The K is to help improve blood clotting, so there won't be any unnecessary bleeding during the operation. So one more week to go on this Liver Shrinking Diet and then it's time for the operation!
