We’re Baaaaack!

So here we are, back at the Hershey Medical Center, in the Children’s Hospital, awaiting Eliana’s G-tube surgery.  They’re a little late (I mean…really…it is a hospital so why wouldn’t they be?). So we’ve got some time on our hands and I figured what better than to live blog the morning.  Some random thoughts, in no particular order:

I’m typing this on a wireless keyboard synced to a 50 inch TV hanging on the wall in her pre-op room.  Pretty snazzy, huh?  And we’re not even in her overnight room.  My hopes are up, so I’m expecting a stocked kitchenette and DVD library along with a king sized bed.

** They gave Eliana a teeny-tiny gown that ties in the front.  Guess babies don’t get out of the crazy hospital gown business.

** She also got a pair of fuzzy booties, just like adults.  They have grippy rubber treads on the bottom too.  Apparently they’ve had trouble with 6 month old kids slipping as they’ve tried to run out of the room?

** Part of her surgery is called a Nissen Fundoplication (can’t easily link from here so look it up yourself).  How cool is the word Fundoplication?  As Dave Barry might say…that would be a good name for a rock band.

** If I’d just gone over 12 hours without food I bet I’d be even grumpier than Eliana is right now.

** I think I just became one of those people who blogs everything. Not sure if I like it.

** Ray Charles still works his magic on a grumpy baby.  Along with the blogging we’ve called up YouTube to listen to some of Mr. Charles’s greatest hits and it calmed her down just like at home.  We should try some BB King; if anyone should have the blues it would be her.

** When the surgery is over they’ll track us down with…wait for it…a pager. Cool.

Alrighty…OR nurses are here so we’ll be off to answer some more questions.
