I'm a little nervous. I'm having surgery tomorrow. Don't worry- due to the miracles of modern medicine I won't have to spend the night, but I'll still have to have full anesthesia. I'll spare you the details because, trust me, you don't want the details. Besides, guessing will be more fun! Labotomy? J-Lo implants? Fripple removal?
I'm telling you this because I've found some helpful information that I thought might be of interest to anyone else that is gluten-free if they end up at the hospital, or at least for you to know just for the sake of being prepared for the unexpected that will hopefully never happen.
Second, did you know that there is a company that sells gluten-free and even gluten-free casein-free food kits for hospitals? Even prisons?! (Uh, hope I never need one there!) You can read all about it here. (Thanks, Nancy.)
So, if you have any tips for a gluten-free hospital stay, please share them with all of us.
Oh, and pleeease forgive me if I owe you an email. I promise that I haven't forgotten about you!
Talk to you soon!
P.S. If you have a corn allergy, I found out some great info about corn-free IV's. Evidently, you can easily get a corn-free saline IV. Of course, I'm not deathly allergic to corn, but I figure I'll at least ask for this since my body definitely doesn't like corn and I figure it is probably a good idea not to "do" corn intravaneously. I'll let you know how it goes.
