Madeleine's surgery is scheduled for 8:30 tomorrow am. We need to be at Children's hospital at 7:15. The surgery will take 4 hours. The recovery will take two. My mother will stay with my sweet Maxy all day- he will be in good hands.
Tonight we made a foot print of Madeleine's little left foot. It didn't turn out well but we tried. I washed her in special surgical soap. She cried. I nursed her to sleep and cried with her in my arms. I hate that she has to endure this. She will be experiencing more surgery than I ever have- more than most people have.
She is not to have anything to eat (not even breastmilk) after 11:30 pm. She can have clear liquids until 3:30 am. This is going to be hard tonight. She likes her midnight snack of breast milk.
I'm sad and scared for my baby.
