Live Blogging Action: Surgery Waiting Room

I was inspired by Mel's live blogging from the BlogHer Conference, so I thought I'd give it a try now. I'm currently in the surgery waiting room while Magic is beginning his transformation. I was very nervous yesterday about him going into surgery. I didn't like the idea of being in a hospital again. It's kinda nice to be on the support end rather than the receiving end. This time, I'm not the one getting poked, proded, or cut into. This is the easy part. The hard part is to come. The hardest part is watching your loved one suffer. I'm hoping that they will be able to manage his pain while he heals.

I signed up for the IComLeaveWe before Magic decided to have his surgery this week. I don't know how much I'll realistically be able to comment this week. Magic is my #1 priority. I think I can do it today, since Magic will be in the recovery room after surgery for another hour and a half.

The most exciting thing that has happened so far is that I heard my name being called while they were wheeling Magic off to surgery. I thought it was our male nurse, but it turned out to be a guy I know from work who look like he was getting prepped for surgery too! I said a quick "hi" and "good luck" as I didn't have time to talk.

I'll be waiting for the dreaded talk with the surgeon which should be in the next 15 to 45 minutes. Let's hope everything is going well in there!
