Quick Pop in-

Just want to mention real quick: I started a job (substitute teaching), and i saw my surgeon, and some other folks today. Got some blood work done, and went to 3 clinics. Domino farms (u of m) bariatric seems to know what they are doing. Chatted with a woman who had the RNY, she reported having pain on her right side 2 weeks out. The doctor said he was most concerned about my getting blood clots (as i have a blood clotting condition) The thing that concerns me most as silly as it sounds is having them cut me from breast to belly button if something goes wrong. He said they would only do that if i had bleeding complications. I also am afraid of dying. Which is normal given surgery. Anyway i have the green light for december 14th, and i have not forgotten about my protein post.. so far the winner is unjury's classic chocolate.

Review on products!!

I have written to a few companies and they have so generously sent me product to review on my blog. This is really exciting to me because i get to share photos, recipes and my review. If i could send you all product i would!! The companies that i will be reviewing:
Unjury- (this is one of the two that we are allowed to have prior to surgery, they sent protein drinks, and vitamins)
-Strawberry Sorbet, chicken soup, chocolate splendor, unflavored, chocolate classic, and vanilla.
-Opurity vitamins- calcium citrate plus, and orange berry for bypass.
Click- (protein with coffee, and caffeine!)
-Vanilla Latte and mocha latte.
Bariatric Fusion- (they sent vitamins and protein drinks)
-Strawberry shortcake, and chocolate mousse.
-vitamins- orange cream, strawberry, and mixed berry.
Bariatric Choice- (they sent protein mix for pudding, and soup.)
-Chocolate Cream pudding and shake, caramel pudding, chicken bouillon.

I am looking forward to reviewing them. I will have separate posts for each, and i can promise lots of photos :) Look on the websites, especially unjury and let me know if you see any recipes you want me to try.

Have a great weekend!
