EGD tomorrow, what should I expect?

WOndering if anyone can tell me what to expect, I'm really really nervous about this. I think I am more nervous about the anesthesia than the actual procedure. Most of what I've read so far has been from people who had the throat spray and light sedation. Well, my doctor is using Propofol (the same thing I had for general anesthesia during a previous surgery) and NO throat spray, since she says I will be in a DEEP sleep and won't even know what's going on. I think she thought this would reassure me, but it did the opposite because I'm terrified of anesthesia and afraid I'll stop breathing or something. I know it sounds silly, but I am so sensitive to everything I take, and even when I've taken benedryl, it made me so out of it and I would wake up gasping for air, like I forgot to breathe or something.

Do they have an anesthesiologist there the whole time monitoring your breathing? Anyone else have the propofol for sedation?
