A Day of Pre Op Appointments

We had Rachel's Pre Op Appointments today.

First we met with her plastic surgeon. Went over the procedure once again, answered any of our questions, had us sign consent for the surgery, etc.

From there we saw the ENT, or shall I say, the nurse practioner for the ENT who will be placing the tubes in her ears. She went over the procedure, answered any questions, and had us sign the consent for that procedure as well.

And lastly, we went over to the Children's Hospital where the surgery will take place. Did the financial clearence stuff and then proceeded to have Rachel checked out by the Nurse Practioner in the Pre Admission Department. Everything checked out just fine and she's cleared for surgery!

Now to just keep her healthy until Monday. As I am battling a cough and sure don't want to pass it on to Rachel. Prayers would most defianately be appreciated!!!

Oh my gosh, it was a long morning/afternoon. Our first appointment was scheduled for 11:00. our second appointment for 11:45. However, the doctor for the first appointment was running over an hour behind!!! Putting our other appointment off longer, etc. Not to mention it was lunch time, and it's only so far that Cheerios and Gerber Puffs will go. We didn't get home until close to 3:00.

I'm so grateful that my parents live close by and Hannah goes to the school she goes to, only about a mile and a half from their house. I had arranged ahead of time for my mom to pick her up from school.
