7am!

At 7 tomorrow morning I'll be going in for my Hysterectomy! If all goes well and they dont find too much craziness in there I should be out after 24 hours, thanks to advanced robotic laproscopic procedures! But, if things are icky in there and Endometriosis has caused bowel involvement I could be in for some pretty horrid stuff like a bowel resection! Today I started on a PEG pre-surgical drink to cleanse the bowels just in case. Gross, I know! For 7 hours I had to drink 8oz of this ickity mixture every 20 minutes. Then ya know how the rest goes. Well, I survived! I havent had anything to eat in over 27 hours and Im a nice flat line 113 on the CGM. Finger poke verifies at 108. Ive been blessed to see flat lines all day, hitting 125 at the highest point. Ive been wondering lately if I need some basal adjustments....I guess not!

Tomorrow my plan is to bump myself up to around 150 then decrease my basals by 30% during the surgery, and until I am able to manage my numbers myself. I SO hope this CGM stays accurate! I always clue the Anesthesiologist in on the CGM and ask that they check my sugar 30 minutes in to the surgery, then each hour after. We shall see how this goes! Im off to bed now, hoping I can sleep! Lets believe this will be a "simple" surgery! I'll post soon, even if Im all drugged up!

I will pray that all goes well for you. Bumping up is a good idea but how long is the surgery? We bumped up to 200 when she had a five hour surgery for her back and it worked out okay. I would bump up to 170 or 180 to give yourself a little more room. Anes will be responsible for checking and controlling your blood sugar. Dextrose drip will be available but I hope they have put in an IV (which they can cap off) just in case. Will pray that you come through with flying colors and have a speedy recovery.
