Game Time

The surgery prep went as expected this morning, and Robert did really well. Of course, he was tired and apprehensive, so he was reticent every step of the way, but once he got familiar with the nurses and his surroundings, he really warmed up and won everyone over with his funny observations and sweet personality.

At about 7:40 a.m., they wheeled him back to the no-parents-allowed area to start anesthesia, and we expect that will take about an hour to an hour and a half. Then they will give us a call just to let us know that they are getting started. From that point, we expect the surgery to last at least 4 hours, possibly up to 7. We’ll get updates roughly ever hour in between. Of course, we’ll be posting updates here as we get them. In the meantime, we’re camping out in the basement waiting area of the Batson Children’s Hospital.

Until the next post, here’s a picture of our sweet Robert moments before they wheeled him back.
