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.
