We got to the recovery room and I got my gown on and into the bed and hooked up to the monitors whilst my husband was vibrating, on his 2nd cup of coffee and would not simmer down with his nervous chatter. He was on top of the world. He actually started my IV for me and got the fluids going while we were already having visitors from his co-workers, partners and other anesthesiologists from the hospital. It was near shift-change time so the new onset of nurses came in to say hello as well and express their excitement for us. (They are ALL seriously awesome and I just love them.) My dad also arrived minutes before we went into surgery. Here's a photo of us in pre-op just waiting for the big event.
