Ellie woke up this morning and told us very clearly that 'I am very excited to go to the hospital today!'
After a the normal amount of waiting room time when she told every doctor nurse and staff person that she was losing her ostomy today, at 9:30 this morning Abby finally carried her into the OR and watched her ride the versed wave to sleep.
And away we go.
Dr. Jennings told us that it may be a 'normal long time', or a 'more than normal long time', depending on what he finds when he opens things up. If there is a lot of scar tissue or adhesions from the last surgeries, it may take a while to clean things up.
We'll leave it to him and our favorite anesthesiologist.
Yes we have a favorite anesthesiologist.
Ellie has had him three times now and we ask for him by name. He is great with us, with her and Dr. Jennings told us this morning that we are right and he likes having this guy on the team.
Waiting rooms suck and always will. Now it is nothing but waiting and we can't do a thing to help (as much as Abby would like to) so we have taken off and will avoid the waiting room until the phone rings.
If only I could find a bed for a nap.
