For the past couple of months we have been trying to schedule Davy's first lip & nose surgery. Apparently her surgeon is one busy dude, cuz the first date he had available was December 21. That's right, 4 days before Christmas. Even worse then that, it was scheduled for 3:30 in the afternoon, which means I would have to starve Davy all day(she has to fast 8 hours). Brutal huh. I was sad that it would be ruining Christmas for the family, but happy that my boys would have no school and could be shipped off to their cousins house. I pleaded with the nurse that if there were any cancellations any time sooner to give us a call.
So guess what? I got a call last night. Davy is now having her surgery October 19th, one week from today. It will be at 8:30 in the morning , so no all day starvation. This is very sudden, but I know it will be so much better to do it now rather then Christmas time.
I have to admit, I cried really hard after I got off the phone. I am not excited, I'm nervous and scared. It's weird to think of her looking any other way. I love her big clefty smile. She won't be the same Davy and it makes me sad. Dang it.....I'm crying again.
