Little T's MRA of arm and MRI of head

Tomorrow anesthesia. I talk calmly to the MRA nurse and the anesthesia nurse. I think this will be number 13 for anesthesia. My lucky number. I try to push away the terror of seeing him go under. Waiting for him to return.

I think about if I should bring Hermione for practical reasons - I tend to stumble more when stressed and she gives me focus. And emotional - she is soft and sweet. C helps but he doesn't like being fussed over like Hermione does.

And the reasons not to -- she is large and the preop and recovery areas are small. I shy away from how well I know those spaces.

I walk around and around these questions. I would walk up and down the hospital halls sometimes but I'd feel less silly walking with a dog... I'm not pacing. I'm walking my dog. And with Hermione I am not afraid I'll take a tumble on the slick floors drawing unwanted attention to myself. But is a dog too much unwanted attention?

I have almost decided...but deciding means I have to think about something else.

Oh anesthesia. Oh oh oh.

Little T is in my prayers. And you.

I hope you bring Hermoine.

I can relate! Might there be some suitable compromise?

I think you should take her. Her purpose is to be there for you to help in all situations, especially stressful ones!

**hugs**

If she helps you emotionally then I think you should take her, as you being calm will greatly help Little T feel calm. Hermione herself may even help Little T feel calmer. She'll also help you feel more confident, and stronger, and less afraid.

I understand your reasons for not wanting to take her, but isn't times like this why you got her in the first place?

I hope you have decided to bring her. She won't probably mind the small places, and-- in a hospital-- nobody will mind her. All my best wishes.

Personally, I would bring her. I'm sure she'll be fine.

Good luck to little T.

I also agree - I think you should take her. You need her, so let her help you. HUG
