down to theatre

I was escorted into the pre-theatre area by the nurse and I sat there with her in my arms. I sat and held her in my arms while a mask was placed over her face to give her a general anaesthetic. It was difficult and upsetting for both of us as I had to restrain her hands to prevent her removing the mask whilst trying to calm her as she was put to sleep . This experience was over in under 10 seconds, but seemed to last a lifetime. I placed her on the bed and the theatre staff took over from there. .

She was to be down in surgery for about 1hr so we went for some breakfast mainly to pass the time and keep ourselves occupied but we were back and waiting within 15 minutes, wanting to be there incase there was news of any sort.
