Abby went back around 10:00. The anesthesiologist was not going to let me go back with her, but I pretty much just insisted because this is all she knows. I think he thought I was going to lose it or something, but I've done this too many times for that! I'm definitely going to stick to requesting our favorite anesthesiologist from here on out.
We are expecting the surgery to be around 4 hours or so. I will keep you updated.
And now...we wait. Headphones on, noise blocked out!
