The Op
THE OP: Let's face it, you'll be asleep. Just wait to wake-up!  Parents: Stay close by, but don't worry too much. Stay near a phone, because they may give you hourly updates.  Try to occupy your mind a bit by doing something, (my friend's mom made sushi). Take comfort in the fact that God is in the operating room with your baby.  One other thing: DON"T WATCH SOAP OPERAS!!!!  In case you didn't already know, in every episode of every soap opera, someone ends up in the "hospital"  which appear to have been  filmed in one of LA's 5-star hotels.  These are rather depressing and can bring on alot of anger, especially when someone you love is in surgery.  Stay away from them.
