Woke up at 4:30am to be at the hospital by 5am. Sat in registration area for an hour and a half, went looking for coffee at 5, but cafeteria does not open until 6:30am. Annoying. Reality was very strong this morning for us both. That feeling you get when you wake up and there is the feeling of dread. Watched her get prepared for surgery, all I could do to keep from crying. Dr’s and nurses busy because the registration took so long and the surgery was scheduled for 7am. Dr’s write on her chest what they are supposed to do. A little Versed for her to make her relax. They don’t offer that to the husband, I’ll put that on my comment card along with the coffee dearth at 5am. It’s the worst feeling to see a loved one rolled away for surgery. I watched my sons each rolled off for various minor surgeries and the feeling is always horrible. Wonderful outpouring of calls, emails and texts wishing us both good wishes,luck and success. Expecting up to 7 hours of surgery, in the cafeteria with her best friend. Coffee, magazines, Ipad and fear.
More later. All prayers welcome.
