Thanks @MEPil. I've been reading your posts for a while and enjoy your perspective. I'm not going to check back with my surgeon, but I will follow her instructions about the Gatorade and won't eat or drink after midnight as instructed. All that's left is washing sheets and towels Sunday so I can wipe myself down with antiseptic wipes and sleep in clean nightie and sheets. I hate to work on a Sunday, but I'll make an exception this time.
