.....and waiting is the hardest part. At least it was for me. When we got our daughter's surgery date it was several months away (just like you.) But it was in February. About a week before, my daughter came down with a bad cold but the hospital told us to come anyway and that they would decide that day if they could do it or not. The anesthesiologist came out about 15 minutes before the surgery and checked her out. They called it off at the last minute. It was brutal. I was so anxious leading up to the whole thing, wondering if they would do it or not, just wanting it to be over, but obviously wanting her to be safe. So they rescheduled for about 2 months later. She got sick again and I told them we weren't coming! I couldn't do that again. Then she got sick the next time too! So it got cancelled 3 times due to sickness!!! By the time she finally had the surgery it was JUNE! I remember my husband was away for a weekend and I didn't leave my house for 4 days.....I wanted to keep my daughter quarantined so she wouldn't get sick again. I didn't let anyone out or in my house!!!! ha! ha! I was crazy!!!!!
So the good news is that your date is in July and there's a lot less sickness/colds going around at that time of year. My daughter was in preschool at the time, and she got the typical colds every few months that winter...it's just that the timing just was rough. I would just be extra careful a couple weeks before and just don't knowingly expose her to people with colds, etc.
Also, that's great that they have a per. anesthesiologist too! It sounds like you are on a good track! Just try to put it out of your mind now for a while and before you know it, it will all be behind you!
