Prepping for Surgery

11:15 am - So Lisa and Henry are in the preparatory phase before the scheduled surgery. Lisa's feet have been swollen due to pregnancy and the warm temperatures. Plus when you are pregnant you're swollen a lot to begin with - the good shoes for when she's not pregnant! (your feet stretch your shoes out so many women have to buy all new shoes for post-pregnancy :-)

They're putting compression socks on Lisa. She should save those for her next marathon. Compression socks are the best for eliminating any pooling of blood in your legs and pumps re-oxygenated blood throughout your body. They're the latest craze - maybe she can get hot pink compression socks :-).

The fetal heart monitor is now on and they are trying to insert the IV.
