Day 2: Surgery- 8 AM Update

We arrived at 6 AM and checked Lauren into the hospital. We didn't have much trouble finding it and traffic was light. I think we will be here all day. The hospital is much different than the one at Stanford. Here there is a lot more going on. They gave Lauren some medication to relax her before surgery. It worked very fast and she was loopy in a matter of minutes. They carried her off and sent us to the waiting room. We share the same waiting room for the maternity ward, so it is pretty busy. The nurse just called us to let us know that the intubation for anesthesia went smoothly and they will be starting the procedure soon. They will call us often with updates.

I am glad to hear everything is going well this morning, especially after a relaxing day yesterday. I will check back often for updates. Continue to be strong and everything will be fine.

Gram called me last night to remind us of Lauren's surgery today. Just know that our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family there and in Salt Lake. Thanks for sharing the special moment at the swimming pool yesterday. It really touched me.
