Once at the hospital he was right at home in the day-care surgery playroom. I guess being there just last week worked in our favour. He knew where the toys were stashed and he knew what he wanted to play. He was a busy little bee in that room, chatting up a storm and entertaining all the other patients with his antics.
It was only in the pre assessment room that the infamous bottom lip came out. I guess getting your temperature taken is the tip off, who knew? But once we were out of there and getting him into his striped jammies he was all smiles once again. Usually there's more time to play (aka wait) before being escorted to surgery but we were ushered right over.

We only had a few moments together before Mommy got suited up and carried Caelan into the operating room. You could see the apprehension on his face as I suited up. The nurse saw it too and quickly fetched the bubbles to distract him. It worked fabulously and Caelan stayed all smiles.
