So, we're apprehensive about having her put out, but are so glad she'll be at the Children's Hospital in St. Paul and that Dr. Hutcheson with be her surgeon (he's been her urologist since she was in the NICU). We're not thrilled about the time -- we have to be at the hospital at 12:30pm for a 2pm surgery, which means she'll have diet restrictions that morning, and for those of you who know Ella, that's not going to be easy or fun. I know she'll think popsicles for breakfast is neat but I also know clear liquids isn't going to be real filling and by noon she'll probably be a bit grumpy.
So that's the plan and we're sticking to it.
I'm glad the decision has been made.
