Default dental brainstorming

OK, I have a three-hour appointment on Wednesday morning for some dental
implants. Normally, I'd have no problem eating a good breakfast at 8 and
not eating again until 1 or 2; I'd be hungry, but not hypo. But the
dental work is potentially stressful, so I can imagine a reactive low.
The oral surgeon said that pauses in the procedure will be fine, so I
can test (I'll bring my meter), but I want to bring stuff with me in
case I do run low. Normally, I'd grab a piece of fruit if I feel low,
but that won't work. I don't have juice in the fridge, as I never drink
it. (I drink water, coffee, iced tea, or fresh lemon- or limeade with
artificial sweetener.) My only option, aside from buying fruit juice, is
to steal some sugar packets from the break room at work and make some
limeade (I have a bag of limes). And, since I have fresh blueberries, I
can make a blueberry smoothy in case I feel I should eat something
before I drive home (I have been told that I'll be able to drive myself,
and I have a friend on call in case I don't feel OK about the driving).
Any other suggestions? Anything I'm not thinking of?

Thanks much.

I would buy some fruit juice. You can get a three pack of organic juice or
Tree Top apple juice boxes. Or a single bottle of some sort of juice. The
juice boxes keep for a long time though.

Last time I bought juice boxes was five years ago, and I never used them!

Donate them to the needy if you don't use them. It's not a big deal. Juice
is cheap!

Bleagh! No input to the problem - I'd buy juice too, and I like your
blueberry smoothie idea - but good luck with the procedure!
