Pre-Op Appointment Update

Today was Aiden's pre-op appointment at Loma Linda University Childrens' Hospital for his surgery next Wed. (Oct. 1st). We had to check in at 8:30 and were finally seen around 9:30. It was pretty simple. They asked a bunch of questions about his health history, took his temp. and blood pressure and then measured him. He was a happy camper the whole time, that is until they decided to prick his finger to check if he is anemic. A little prick, squeeze for blood and then a band aid to make it all feel better.

He is good to go and we now have to just wait until Tues. afternoon to find out our surgery time. They believe it will be first thing in the morning since he is a little guy and they usually take them first so they don't have to wait. I will keep everyone updated as soon as we know a time. I thought I might be anxious today but ended up being very content because this brought us one step closer to surgery day. Not much longer and we will have the first surgery hurdle behind us. Thank you to everyone for their thoughts and prayers.


  1. Glad to hear he checked out. Now comes the waiting until next week...and praying he doesn't get sick between now and then.

  2. I love the blog! I can't believe how much all the kids are growing...and Aiden's MOBILE? Unreal! All of our thoughts and prayers go with you all as surgery day draws near. Love ya!
