Day One: Update #1

Mary went into the operating room at 8:10am. Mama was able to go back with Mary until they put her under. I sang her "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" until she went to sleep. There was some confusion this morning and her numbing cream was not applied to her hand when we arrived. So when they came to get us it was time to go in and get the IV. Mary however didn't even flinch when they put the needle in, confirming our suspicions that she has either a high pain tolerance.

They expect surgery to take 2.5. - 3 hours, and then about an hour in recovery. We are hoping to see her around noon. We are lucky to have such great friends working at the hospital. Our friend Sue bought our coffee and breakfast this morning, and our neighbor Brent came to visit with us and keep our minds occupied.

We'll let you know how Mary did later on today...


  1. I'm so glad you were able to sing Mary to sleep. Sending lots of positive energy your way.

  2. Glad to hear you were able to go back with her.
    Will be waiting to read your next up date.
