Spica dolls

Today I took Tempe and Helena (and Juno) to PCH for a surgery prep class so that we could all see exactly what was going to happen next week. It was so helpful and the girls really enjoyed it! My dear neighbor Joy is a Child Life Specialist at PCH and I told her we were coming today, so she put Spica "casts" (they're actually just bandages) on the hospital dolls that are given out in the class so that Tempe and Helena could see what Juno will be wearing next week.

Here are Tempe and Helena in their surgical gear with their hospital dolls.
And here's my sweet little baby with her Spica doll!
For me, it was so nice to get a walk-through of exactly what is going to happen next week and see where we will be spending the day and night. I still feel like I'm going to have a panic attack every time I think about it, but I feel a little better...
