I mentioned that I was in the hospital recently and just wanted to share how sweet the whole process was thanks to my boyfriend.
I had to get my first surgery ever and my only other experience with partial anesthesia was horrific. The dentist didn't give me enough so I was awake for the entire procedure (my wisdom teeth) So needless to say I was PETRIFIED to be completely out.
Luckily for me, my boyfriend took a half day of work to make sure he was there when I woke up (technically he was going to be there before I went in too but the doctor changed the schedule last minute and took me in early).
I had mentioned in passing that all I wanted when I woke up was a tangerine to snack on until we could go get some simple pasta. He's not really the kind of person who remembers things like that though so I was prepared to have to ask him again later.
So imagine my surprise when I get wheeled into my room to find him standing there with a bag of tangerines, bananas, orange juice, my favorite kind of green tea, and a fresh box of pasta for us to go home and cook.
I live pretty far from my family so having him there for me during the whole process really made me feel calm and the fact that he remembered my little request just made it that much better!
