Dylan's pre-op appointment has been changed to Thursday, October 30. I got a letter in the mail explaining everything that they would be doing on this day.
Here is what it says:
"Dylan is scheduled for a sedated echo at 10 am on 10/30. He will then have a History and Physical, blood and urine tests, chest x-ray, and EKG. You will meet with the surgeon, the anesthesiologist and will tour the Pediatric ICU. We will confirm the surgery date and have you sign consent forms."
So, along with ten thousand other concerns about this appointment, one of my big ones is the sedated echo. I am terribly uncomfortable with this. I don't like the sound of it and I don't like the whole idea of it, either. I was told by the secretary that Dylan would have to be finished eating 4 hours prior to his echo. You know...I just do not want to have to let my baby go hungry. And then drug him. Ugh.
Does anyone out there in the blog world have any words of wisdom for me regarding the pre-op? I'm stressing out. Big time.
As always, thank you so much for reading. And for your continued support.
Laurie and Dylan
