I had picked the surgeon

I asked to see the doctor before he came in for surgery. I was in the pre-op room and they had already put in the IV and started some of the sedation and stuff. But I remember feeling very calm about it, feeling its okay to go under and let him do the surgery. I knew that he was going to do a good job. This was somebody that I had picked that I felt we had a good rapport. He understood what my needs were. And so when he came into this operating room, it was like I can go ahead and go under now. Everything is in its proper place and order.
