The staff was outstanding. Each floor has its own child life specialist...Allison was ours and she obviously loves her job. Will wasn't talking about his anxiety, but she got him talking and showed him pictures of the OR, got him a movie to watch, and simply played with him and seemed to enjoy his particular sense of humor. When it was time to leave, she actually (apparently unusually) walked us out.
Rick, a friend and one of our elders from church, works in Atlanta and left work to be with us. I'm not sure he realizes how much it helped, but having someone else to chat with and pray with is a real blessing. When I burst into tears, he didn't blink an eye... :)
The real glitch in the day...
William is in a moderate amount of pain. He's propped up on the sofa in our room and is watching the History Channel and enjoying cable while he has it. :)
We plan to head toward home tomorrow...Lord willing it will be less eventful than the trip down was! :)
