Stocking Up

No solid food for a week. That’s the mandate from my periodontist. So I am making lists of appropriate foodstuffs, collecting recipes that won’t get swallowed up by the gaping hole and won’t throw my blood sugar levels completely out of kilter.

Low fat ice cream, sherbert, apple sauce, Lipton tea bags, and Glucerna shakes are all on the list.

Valium for one hour before the surgery. No xanax or effexor that day.

Eryc and vicodin are also on the menu.

Other suggestions appreciated.
