We arrived around 9:45 in the morning and went into the back to get prepped. Upon our arrival there were all kinds of goodies waiting for her on her bed..... a monkey, some crayons and stickers, a coloring book and a special OR cap. The nurses were all so friendly and sweet with her! They turned on a show for her to watch, brought her a Nintendo DS for her to play with and showered her with all kinds of attention :) Which she loved, of course!
After meeting briefly with the anesthesiologist and our doctor, Dr Brown, we were ready to go, and the nurses gave her some meds to calm her... which she didn't really need. She was calm as could be!
She drank down the medicine like a champ and within minutes my baby was sooooo loopy! Poor thing. She went from bubbly and talkative to a little lump on a log, just sitting there with her head propped up on the pillow, not talking at all but still smiling a lot!
