Next I met another doctor called an anesthesiologist. He is the one that will make sure I don’t feel a thing because I will be asleep the whole time. He told me about the medicine he has that will make me sleep. He listened to my heart and lungs and also asked me to open my mouth real wide and stick out my tongue.

Soon it was time to meet the people that will take care of me while I am sleeping. I saw my doctor again, the one who is going to do my surgery. He told me about it, but I already knew because the Child Life Specialist explained everything. 


Then I met the nurse anesthetist. Her job is to work with the doctor and give me medicine to sleep.

Everyone was really nice and friendly. They said that they are a team that works together to make sure I am safe and comfortable during the surgery.
