Here's a list of a couple things I got to prepare:
-Body pillows (I put one under my mattress to prop up my bed)
-Wipes for my face
-Button down shirts
-I have a blender, food processor, and my surgeon's office gave me a NutriBullet!
I have been blending a bunch of smoothies since my mom doesn't really know how to make them and I know the first couple days I won't feel up to it to make smoothies. I made a bunch of different kinds, but my favorite is a green smoothie. The ingredients are:
-A handful of spinach
-Half a banana
-V8 tropical juice
I normally make smoothies with almond milk, but I find the juice makes them much thinner. So hopefully I'll able to have all these smoothies I just made! I know from reading everyone else's blogs, the first couple of days I probably won't feel like eating much.
Here's a few more before pictures, the ones from today aren't great. I'm really exhausted and haven't put on any make up today.

|So many smoothies!|
|Selfie haha What a difference some make up makes!|
|Actually showing off those lovely braces|
|I thought this was a good candid of my side view. This picture would be so cute if my profile was better.|
Well I'm off to eat my last good meal for a while! (My favorite chicken pad thai! I haven't really been sticking to the vegan thing....) I may post more in the morning but if not I'll be posting updates post-op!
