She's Sleeping- Hooray!

It's a little after 7:30 and my baby girl is crashed out. We have had a really long day of Dr. visits and high energy interaction. This place really is amazing like that. I think they must screen your enthusiasm level before they hire you because the people here are all, well, like Kindergarten teachers. You know, big smiles and every kid is the greatest one to ever walk through the door. I have 3 friends who are kindergarten teachers and they would all make great Scottish Rite employees.

We started out with a 12:00 appt in admissions and when we walked in, the lady said "Hi Ruthie!" like she was the only one who might be walking through the door. I was very impressed. Then we went to see the Anesthesiologist who sat down and explained everything she does. After that, the surgeon came in and went over everything with me. I have heard over and over what an incredible pediatric hand surgeon this lady is. I have even heard someone say that she is the best in the world. Then the PA came in and went over post op care with us. She escorted us to the pharmacy where they talked about her medications and a volunteer was waiting there to take us to the surgical area where 2 nurses met us in a conference room to talk about what all would take place pre-op. Another volunteer walked in after that and escorted us to our room. Shortly after arriving in our room, the nurse, Child Life, and the Dietician all came in. It was like a well oiled machine and again, VERY IMPRESSIVE.

So here we are, exhausted and information ready for what tomorrow holds. I have no doubt that Ruthie is in the right place and in very capable hands. I will post tomorrow. Thanks for praying.

I was a patient at TSRH in High School for my scoliosis - they fitted me for braces, etc., that I wore for several years! Truly a great place to be!

Glad the surgery went well and y'all are home! Praying for speedy recovery!
