One hurdle done

So we started off late this morning. We got into St.Petersburg 5 minutes late and got the the office. I signed in and waited 20 minutes. That's when they decided to tell me I was at the wrong office. So we rushed over to the other side of St.Pete and showed up at the right office 30 minutes late. They were ok with it though and were very understanding. We went into the room they did an EKG, took his blood pressure, and took us to another room where the Cath lab nurse was. She went over the procedures and rules and lukily he didn't need to have any labs drawn. So we have to report to the hospital at 11:00 am and the cath will happen after that. Not quite sure what time but sometime around 1 o'clock. My phone stopped working today so after the pre op appt. we drove the 15 miles over to Tampa to the apple store to get it fixed. YAY phone works now. I have to say the only rude thing I have come across are the drivers. The hosptial staff, the apple store, especially the hotel staff have been awesome. We tried to check in around 10 today and she was so apologetic saying she didnt have any rooms available yet. We said that was fine we would come back. She asked how many children I had, I told her I had 1 with me. She said she would have something for him when we got back. We just checked in a little while ago and she handed me the packet of papers that she had went online and printed for him to draw and activites to do. I thought that was so nice. Then we were sitting in the room and the front desk called to ask if our room was ok and everything was ok. I have never had anyone do that before. They also lowered our room rate because we are here for him to have a procedure. Anyway Thanks so much for all the prayers so far and ask that you continue to send the our way. I'm sure things will be fine and the Dr. will know as soon as the cath is over when he needs to have his valve replaced.
