Re: Surgery day is almost here!
Lainy- My daughter, Kristen told Lauren she might have to have a tube in her nose if she is real nauseous. I don't think she likes that idea much either, but it won't be as bad as the big breathing tube. Kristen also said they could have to leave the breathing tube in after surgery for a short time if she is in ICU and they think it will help, but she will be so sedated she won't know. I know Kristen and Bruce won't let anything by them. They will be watching her like hawks!!
Thanks for the support, Julia, Jennifer, and Pam!!
Lauren is not nervous, just excited!!
We just found out a few minutes ago that her surgery starts at 7:30 am and we have to be at the hospital at 5:30am. She will probably have to get up at 3:30 because they want her to shower tomorrow morning with antibacterial soap. I made her drink a bottle of Citroma yesterday and she was not happy about that!! Well, gotta go get ready for the big trip!!
Love to all,
-Pam and Lauren
