She sat on the couch and watched the Wiggles for over an hour while Auntie Katie went back to sleep. She was very content to sit there with Ellie and watch.
We got to the hospital at 5:30 AM and they called us back about 6:30. Maddie got some cool looking scrub like things to hang out in for a while.
None of this was interesting to her, so she watched the Wiggles through the entire thing.
We started late since her surgery team had a meeting in the morning, so they didn't take her back to put her IV lines in at 8:00. We got a call at 10:00 AM that they had all the lines in, but had a hard time with her central line. They ended up having to try 2 places to find one that worked. I forgot to mention to them she has bad veins.
We got a call about 10 minutes ago that they had begun the incision and were going in. From the camera scope it looks like everything is what they were expecting, which is good news.
The nurse we know is calling us from the OR and she said they will check back in about an hour. I'll post around then.
Thank you all for all of the prayers, emails, texts, visits, etc. We have felt truly blessed and loved.
