Alyssa came with me to pass the time at the hospital during Selah's surgery. We left at 6 a.m. on semi-icy roads and they finally wheeled her back to the OR at 10:15. The surgery itself is a full two hours, with a third hour in recovery before I am allowed back. The staff here is wonderful and I met with several doctors before they took her back. Her main entertainment was channel surfing so fast that she couldn't even see the shows on TV. Once they gave her the loopy liquid, that was to relax her in preparation of leaving me and having a mask on, she was pretty outgoing and kept calling "come here" to the staff that walked by. The dental surgeon did not have high hopes of her having enough good teeth in the front to even be able to cap them; she may be toothless for a few years! They also prepared me for her to be one angry bird when I get to go back and see her.
