Off in a Flash

We woke up this morning somewhat leisurely because we didn't have to be at the hospital until 10.  Around 7:15 the phone rang and it was the hospital asking if we could get there as soon as possible to move up their surgical schedule for the day.  Surrrrrrrre, no problem we'll be out of the house in fifteen.  Sorry Olivia, that last bottle you were looking forward to, yeah not going to happen.  I was in and out of the shower in two minutes and Brian had the car loaded up by the time that I was dressed and Olivia was changed.

Off we went, only to really realize we weren't going to gain much time due to the traffic in Naperville between the hours of 7-9am.  We finally got here around 8:45, they took us up to pre-op where we went through the normal Q & A and waited some more.  To her credit, Olivia was very calm.  Smiles were few and far between but can't say that I blame her.  She definitely knew something was amiss.  The surgical team just wheeled her back a few minutes ago and depending on the amount of time it takes to get lines in and make it through the scar tissue it may be another hour or more before you hear from us.

Thank you all for your contiued well wishes, prayers and love.
