My Surgery Day

On Monday the 13th I was going to have a surgery later on in the afternoon.So me and my mum went to drop off my older brother to school and then we went to put in our fuel in our car.After that I had to run in the shop and top up my brothers bus card.Then we went to drop off my little brother and sister to school.Next me and my mum drove home and watched t.v for a bit.But I couldn't eat or drink until my surgery was over.Then me and my mum went and looked around and brought a couple of things so we don’t lose track of time.Next we went to pick up my little brother and sister from school so we can take them home so they can get change so we can shoot off to the hospital.After when they finished getting change we started driving to the Green Lane Hospital.Then we hopped out of the car and I was so nervous that I had butterfly's in my stomach. We walked to the elevator and went to the fourth floor and went to the reception and then we went and waited in the waiting room.Next a Nurse came and took me and my mum into this room while my little sister and brother waited outside in the waiting room.The nurse asked me 8 questions to make sure nothing goes wrong in my operation.Next another Nurse came to get me and ask me the same questions were asked to me and I told her “Um I already have been asked these questions”.After that another Nurse came out and asked me some more question.She also told me that I had to wait because there was another person having their surgery before me so I had to wait in the waiting room till the doctors come to get me for my operation.While we were waiting we were playing Subway run.After awhile the doctor came out and told me it is time, so the Doctor went and brought me a hot blanket and it was so so warm.When we arrived in the room my mum was following me into the room until I fall asleep.Next the Doctor put the mask on my face and at first it smelt like bubble gum and then  the gas came into the mask and I fell asleep slowly. When I woke up from my surgery I spate out some blood and the nurse gave me   2 tissue’s so I can stop the bleeding.Then my mum walked in the recovery room and the nurse gave me a ice-block and then I walked to a chair.After that I was allowed to go home and I was happy to go home.
