Vivian went in for surgery at 7:55. She was very sweet and cooperative, even agreed to change out of her favorite clothes into a hospital nightgown (it helped that I *accidentally* spilled water on her shirt). Vivian was easily distracted while the anesthesiologist started her IV, though when the time dragged on, she decided that perhaps she didn't want an IV in her hand. Fortunately Robert caught her before any damage was done while the anesthesiologist quickly added a sedative to her IV.
We haven't received any news from the OR, but I'll update after we do.

I unintentionally contaminated all of the pictures on my blog when I changed my privacy settings on Flickr. I am working backwards to correct them all, but it is quite a tedious procedure! If you encounter a post with error messages from Flickr where the pictures should be, then I haven't gotten to that post yet. Please let me know and I will update it immediately. Thanks for your patience!
