I was able to stay with Mia until she was completely sedated in the operating room. It was heartwrenching to say the least. She grabbed for my face and looked deep into my eyes as she fought to stay awake. I kept stroking her hair and telling her "it was okay" and that "I loved her." The anesthesiologist sang "row row row your boat" to her as she fell asleep. It was very sweet! We are a little over an hour and a half into the two hour procedure so I am hoping to get called soon to come back and see her.
