A day at the hospital - Pre Op

July 6 we began our day with an 8:00am appointment for Elle's pre op. Truthfully, I was a little nervous about this appointment because it meant Elle was going to have both her blood pressure taken and blood drawn. Elle's isn't a fan of the blood pressure cuff and she's never had blood drawn before (at least not while she has been awake). She was a super trooper for the whole day and surprised us all in how well she did.

She did so well that she got to play with TWO blue gloves.

We had a lot of fun in our little exam room. Elle had so much fun coloring and playing with the gloves and reading all her new books. One of the nurses even told us that she couldn't wait to get to our room because it sounded like we were having so much fun! Ha!!

The wonderful nurses gave Elle a whole bunch of stickers for being such a good patient.

While we did have a lot of fun in our little exam room, we sure were happy when we were sent home after 6 hours of exams and testing. Elle fell asleep on the car ride home but when she finally did wake up - Lee and I decided to have an evening of all of Elle's favorite things. After dinner we went and fed the fish and turtles at a little pond by our house, then we headed over to Vivi and Big Daddy's house for Elle to see Big Daddy's salt water aquarium and eat some ice cream. After that we went to the high school and Elle got to drive around the parking lot for a bit before heading home for a bath and some books before bed time. Surgery is scheduled for tomorrow at 7:00am. It's going to be a long day but Lee and I have complete faith in our Lord Jesus Christ that our little angel will be protected. She is in God's hands!
