Here are some pictures of Sam in preop this morning. He is wearing super cozy feetie pajamas from Aunt Margaret and has a new penguin friend from the Hardys'. He loved it all so much! In fact, the nurse tried to give him a new teddy bear and he said, "No, you should save it for a kid who doesn't already have a special friend." Later he saw a little girl in her room with the bear and he said, "Mom, I think I did something nice--she got that bear!"
The funny things on Sam's head are called fiducials. They are markers for the stealth guided computer that will be used during the surgery. He went off to surgery at about 8:45 am and he was very brave. Not so much mom :(
We don't expect to hear anything for a while, it takes a LEAST an hour to get him hooked up to all the lines and actually start the incision.
Thanks for checking on us...we'll keep you posted.
