I think we're ready!

Last week we went to Build-A Bear to let Logan build a "surgery buddy" for the big day tomorrow. He chose a green alligator and dressed him in a Batman shirt. He named him, Batman-Gator! We also purchased a set of scrubs for the Gator to help in preparation for Gator to "go to the doctor and get a second ear."

We practicing prepping Gator for surgery by taking his blood pressure, listening to his heart and taking his temperature. The Gator would put on the oxygen mask and take a nap. We would then wrap his head in a bandage and when he woke up he would receive some juice and a small surprise. We have been practicing all week in hopes that Logan will be as calm and prepared as he was last year. It's almost midnight, we go in a 6 am...I better try to get some shut eye!

Quick Note: Logan has been sick for the last 5 days, so we are crossing our fingers that the surgery can still go forward.

Thats so cute, I had built a bear from my friend for my operation back in July. He has it Surgeon's scrubs on and banadged head! When my friend left "Oliver" and the balloons at the hospital ready for my arrival, the nurses even put hospital tags on him, i was surprised. It was a lovely gesture.
All the best of luck with today (uk time)

Regards
