Thank goodness we were able to feed Alexis up until 3 a.m. She took a good 4 ounces at 2:30 a.m. and stayed asleep during the whole drive to the hospital. She was all smiles as they checked her in, put her in her cute little hospital gown, and visited with her parents and grandparents. At around 7 a.m. the grandparents said their goodbyes and Jason and Alexis and I went with the nurse up to the surgery area.
Saying goodbye to her and watching them carry her off was awful. It helped that she was in good spirits the whole time. I'm a wreck. Guess that's to be expected.
The 4 grandparents and Jason and I are currently in the surgery waiting area at St. Vincent. We have a pager and a nurse who will keep us updated. It's nice that the cafeteria is real close and there are computers in here. I'm hangin' in...it's gonna be a long morning.
