It was exciting because we might finally get some answers as to her delays. It was scary for the same reason. Something about blissfully living in ignorance.
We got there 30 minutes early (ours was the first appointment of the day), which was about 7:30 AM. Neither Kris nor I had slept the night before, but it didn't seem to matter.
