Tomorrow's plans

I just got a call from the surgery scheduler, we have to be at the hospital with Bilal at 8am tomorrow morning. Right after the call Bilal had his second runny bowel movement of the day, so I called back and left a message, just to make sure we're still OK with that. He's not acting sick, no fever and his appetite is great, so I'm hoping it's just something he ate. As of now it seems like we'll be on track. I'm getting a bit anxious, even though I know it's not a big operation. I'm worried how Bilal will react to having to be there, facing all those strangers, and of course I'm sure it will hurt some. He will be allowed to have clear liquids until 2 hours before our required arrival time, and then after the surgery he should be in recovery for about an hour. After that if he will take something to drink we'll be allowed to go home, provided all goes according to schedule, and that's what we're praying for. Even with the apprehension, I'm ready to have this taken care of.

By this time tomorrow, the surgery will be behind you, and I'm sure that will be a relief, but that doesn't make the next few hours any easier. You and Bilal will be in our thoughts and prayers tomorrow morning.
