Blood Test Results

I received the results of my pre-op testing in the mail this weekend. They found me to be vitamin D deficient. This isn't really a surprising result since I live as a hermit in sun deprived Maine. Along with the test results, there was a prescription for 50,000 IU of vitamin D to be taken once per week. Every time that I reduce the number of prescriptions that I have to take, I get a new one to add to my regimen. I will have to hope that it is all for the best.

Soon, November 2, I will begin my 2 week pre-op liquid protein diet. I will let you know how that goes, of course. Thank you all for your wonderfully supportive comments!
