The waiting begins...
It's 8:50am. The anesthesiologist, nurses and Dr. Sood all came in and talked with us. They just took her back about 10 minutes. It will be about an hour before the actual surgery starts.
This morning has been by far the hardest moment. There is so much unknown. So much to be hopeful for but also so much to be scared about. It will be what it is but the "not knowing" part is always the hardest. Not yet knowing what to accept. It has always been that way ever since Sophie was first diagnosed at 6 months of age.
Thank you all for your words of encouragement. We are trying our hardest to stay positive. We are just so incredibly scared, emotional, tired, hopeful, grateful...so many mixed emotions.
