Three hours until he's done!

We arrived at the hospital at 8:03, which was a little bit late - thank you, first day back to school and three inches of snow. They registered us. At 8:20, we went into preop, where we spoke with a long train of doctors, anaesthesiologists, and nurses. The Boy was hungry and grumpy, but was still (and loud) during his port access. At 10:10, I dressed in disposible scrubs and went into the OR with him, until he fell asleep.

Yes, that's a hair net. No, I don't know why. It's policy.

The most heartbreaking thing? When he started yelling, "Want to go home! Want to go home!" Ugh. That got me.

He fell asleep, and I left. Now, we wait. They told us that it would take around three hours.

Poor little dude. He has been through so much already. Praying for a speedy recovery and yes I did get a little chuckle out of the hair net. :)
