While sitting in the waiting room, awaiting news that the surgery went well, my mind couldn't help but to recount how many times I have been in this position. Eleven.
Eleven surgeries in the past fifteen years. No wonder she seemed at such ease going in. As you can see here she aquired a new stuffed animal, has her favorite movie playing up above her, and she was enjoying playing games on an IPad that they let her borrow. She was having a great time waiting for the doctor to come and put her to sleep. To her this was nothing more than a typical part of life. Doesn't everyone get poked and prodded on a regular basis?
While I have gotten used to playing nurse to her, having to be on double duty with my husband is something new. Trying to take care of two patients at the same time will require some strategic planning on my part. Will I be up to the challenge? Stayed tuned to find out!
