Surgery tomorrow

Tomorrow will be Alexis' surgery. The surgeon, of course, tells us how it's just a very routine and simple surgery, but there's nothing routine or simple about having your three year old operated on. The surgery is expected to take 45-75 minutes, but I can already imagine that that will be the longest 45-75 minutes of our life.

She's expected to stay overnight, but we will hopefully be bringing her home on Thursday. Obviously we will both be staying at the hospital tomorrow night, while the older girls stay with grandma and grandpa.

Even though she's young, she's expressed some fear about the surgery, so we're doing everything we can to keep her mind off of it. Rebecca will be taking five days off, so we can both be here to help her recover. We'll obviously be watching a lot of movies, especially a lot of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles...her current favorites.
