After lying in bed wide awake until about 1am last night, my alarm went off at 4:35am this morning!! We had to be here at the clinic at 6:15, which meant we had to leave the house at a little after 5am. Avery thought it was pretty cool to wake up while it was still dark! Once we started driving she said, "Hey!! Now I can play on Daddy's old phone, because the sun has gone away, so I can see it!"
Getting her bracelets.
They gave her a princess sticker book after she took her medicine. She was a little worried that the medicine might be yucky, but she still drank it after a little reassurance (and a promise from the anesthesiologist that she would get a red popsicle when she wakes up!)
The anesthesiologist checking her heart. She let her listen to her heartbeat and asked her what it sounded like. Avery said it sounded like an elephant stomping :)
Starting to feel a little sleepy, and taking to Daddy and Brogan.
"Tell your Dad I'm writing on your legs," says Dr Yngve.
"Don't write on yourself at home!" he says!
Avery's french-style hat - styled by the anesthesiologist :)
Off she goes! So brave, and still excited!
When her number turns blue, she'll be in recovery! She's the second green one - green means she's in the OR.
