The nurse and anesthesiologist just came and picked up James. We've been set up in a private waiting room. The nurse said it will take an hour to an hour and a half to get all the lines and tubes in. At that point the nurse will come out and let us know, then he'll come out every hour to give us updates.
James did very well without food this morning. He only had a small breakdown toward the end of waiting, but he settled when we started walking. He's a trooper!
