Surgery took one hour of prep and two hours of actual surgery. Between the two, the surgeon came out and gave me a plastic baggie full of the hair he'd shaved off my baby. The time passed quickly. She looked pretty bad to me, but since she looks worse now, I see that she actually looks pretty good in these. She was ravenous and drank three bottles of water right away.
I held her, but it didn't comfort her because I couldn't get her head positioned well due to the screws sticking out of it and then she started dripping blood all over me so I had to put her down.
Compared to what she looks like now, she did look "A ok" in these photos, as one friend said, though to me in real life, she looked heartbreaking.
