We took it easy because our pre-op was scheduled for noon. We weren't sure how long it was going to take, so we got dressed and headed downstairs for the complimentary breakfast.
We were running way ahead of schedule, so we decided to walk around and enjoy the cold fallish weather. This town is simply gorgeous.
We went into the first room and watched a video.
He observed and assessed Finley. Then he made his final prognosis for her post-operation. We are so grateful for him. Fin rarely takes to people so quickly and you can tell he's just the sweetest man. She was so content on his lap after just meeting him.
After our time with Dr. Park, we were then escorted to Physical Therapy. Josh took Fin and I headed to do check in & preliminary paperwork up at "same day surgery" floor.
We concluded the Pre-Op and just in time for Dinner. We walked around the adorable town and saw a really yummy restaurant, so we went in. It's called the Wild Flower.
We took a little stroll around the town some more, and just felt so grateful and we fantasized about what it will be like when Finley can walk independently. It's like our minds block it or something, we just can't even fathom.
We retired to our hotel room for the night, we bathed Fin and I braided her hair while she face-timed with her favorite person, her Kiki (nanny). She sat and held both of our hands and ate a little bit more dinner around 8pm. She's not aloud any food after midnight or any liquids after 4am, so I was trying to fill her up! Afterwards, she fell asleep rather quickly. I packed the hospital bag, picked up the room, laid out outfits, and loaded the stroller for our 5am exit.
I am hoping to sleep at some point. My mind is all over the place. I keep picturing my Dad and my Mother-in-law, both tragic hospital deaths in our family. And recently. My Dad 4 years ago and my Mother-in-law just this past January. Miss them so much. Looking forward to getting through the hospital one day at a time.
