This is Seatmate again with a quick update on a beautiful young lady.
We got to the hospital around 8 and waited for awhile before they called her up. Around 9:15 they came down and grabbed me and took me up to pre-op to see swerve. She was gowned up and had 2 autographed hips and a lot of very nice people looking after her. After a quick hello to her team (some I knew from last year and some I met today) they sent me away so the could put in the epidural. So they were pretty much right on schedule. I had a chance to grab some quick breakfast with Ma and Pa Swerve and now we're playing the waiting game.
I asked the fellow how long she expected it would take and she said it would be 4-5 hours but swerve remembered that it was about 6 last year since she's special. So we expect to hear something anywhere from 2 to 4ish.
I'll update as I know more and hopefully the heroine of this saga will be awake enough to give an update herself this evening.
