Today we leave for Calgary. It's the final stop before the big day tomorrow and I am a mixed bag of emotions. Hudson is full of giggles and smiles these days and I hope we won't go too long before seeing his sweet personality again. It breaks my heart just thinking about it...
Today is pre-op day. He'll have bloodwork done so they can test his blood type and make sure they have a supply on hand in surgery for if/when they need to do a transfusion. He will also get a laser head scan today to show things such as head circumference and "before" pictures that we can compare to the "after" ones he'll have taken 2-3 weeks post op.
We'll also find out his surgery time for tomorrow, keeping our fingers crossed it's bright and early so that:
A) he won't have to go too long after waking without eating for his pre-op fasting; and
B) we can just get it over and be done with it
So here we go. I am fearful and hopeful and everything in between...but lets do this!
