Preo-op, New year, and count down till surgery

Yesterday Alex went to pre-op, it was uneventful (so nice!!!!) I was happy to have most of the hospital quiet because of the pending holiday. We were able to get in and out in about two hours... That is record time for us... Everything looks great for tomorrow. They only did a chest x-ray and drew some blood for labs....We rang in the New Years in our beds sound asleep until we heard the infamous cannon that our neighbors shoot off... We love to hear it and I was glad it was loud enough to wake me for two seconds, realize what it was, smile, and go back to sleep. The kids didn't even stir... Today we take Ry to Orem and say 'see you' soon. I guess the PICU is in lock down for the winter months because of the RSV risks... Then tomorrow we check in at 6:30 am and surgery is scheduled for 8 am... We will try and keep you updated as things go...
