The day started at 4:45 am today, so if this post seems delirious, it's because I am delirious.
For the benefit of someone who might go through this one day at Boston Childrens, first we went to the Surgical Unit on the 3rd floor of the main building, and checked in. We waited in the pre-surgery waiting room for a bit, where Evie waved at everyone. Then we went into the pre-op area, where she kept smiling and laughing, thinking we were having great fun. We met with each of the 3 surgeons and the anesthesiologist to discuss the procedure and sign consent forms. Erick ended up taking her into the OR (he had to gown up) because she fought the medicine to make her sleepy with every ounce of her toddler-ness (that is a word, once you have a toddler).
