The morning started early. Her surgery was schedule at 7:00 AM, the first one of the day. We had to be at the surgery center at 6:00 which meant we needed to leave at 5:30. Which meant I needed to get up at 4:45. Which really meant I had been awake off and on from about 4:00. Checking the clock every few minutes to make sure I didn't over sleep. Let's just say, it's been awhile since I've been up that early. I got Sarah up at 5:20 and was a bit nervous she wouldn't be too happy since she couldn't have anything to eat or drink before the procedure. She sat quietly in the car and watched Mickey Mouse on the way there. And she actually did pretty good while we waited for her surgery time. Jim stayed back so he could get the boys ready and to school. Divide and conquer.
We got called back shortly after 6:00 to fill out paperwork and had a chance to talk to the doctors and nurses before they took her back.
|Waiting for surgery time|
|And more waiting.|
|Headed home, still waking up.|
|The nurses gave her this little white bear. She loves it!|
|There's a little smile.|
|Almost home, still shocked she didn't fall back to sleep in the car.|
|She's such a little trooper!|
