Surgery time

We arrived in Minneapolis late Saturday night and got right into the RMH. Thank goodness. We rested and did some shopping yesterday, and then enjoyed some playtime at the RMH.

This morning we were up at 4 am and we checked in for surgery at 5:30. Dr. VanHeest came in for a final check and then Daddy took Gracie back to the OR. The procedure should be pretty quick, not much more than an hour. The official procedure is as follows: She's having carpal tunnel release on both hands and her right index finger and ring finger trigger digits released. The ring finger was a surprise add-on after the dr visit in pre-op.

Gracie was not anxious prior to surgery at all which was great! She played and chatted and blew bubbles through the whole pre-op and then requested pink and purple bandages- one on each arm. :) We'll post pics if she gets her way.

Will update more later. Stay tuned.
