E will be having surgery on April 7th instead of March 27th, due to a better time of day becoming available (8:30am instead of 11:30am). We will be arriving at 6am that morning to get the whole ordeal over with. I think E will be much happier following the cannot-eat-for-6-hours-beforehand rule with an earlier check-in.
There is also a chance that we will get a call to go in on a random day if someone cancels, since I spoke to the surgery scheduler and she says that occasionally happens. However, it will most likely be on the 7th as planned. That means that the 7th-17th will be the dreaded SoftFeeder bottle days. Wish us luck!
