It’s been like sitting in an hour glass, watching the other families trickle out of the Surgery Pavilion today. At 9:45 this morning, almost every chair around me had a keister in it. Now, Lynn, Dad and I are all but alone.
Modern medicine takes as long as it takes, I guess. But, I hate waiting.
As to mother, here’s the latest: at 3:15, we checked at the desk and the folks in the white coats had just wheeled mother into the recovery room. They say she will be there for 2 hours, and we were told earlier that we would not be able to see her until she is assigned a room. So, that means some time around 5:00.
That’s not the original time table discussed. We were told at 11:45 – when we were kicked out of the pre-op room – that surgery would take an hour or so, and that her recovery would take an hour before she would go to her room for tonight.
We do not know what caused the delay. All I know is that the doc went from mom’s procedure right into the next, indicating that he was running behind. I was really hoping that we would know how mother did, but alas, no doc.
Speaking of sands through the hourglass, we are down another family. All I see is Pormen’s now.
Oh – by the way – Eleanor and Saralyn went to the doctor this morning and were both found to have bacterial infections in their little ears. The are on the antibiotics now. So, hopefully they are on the mend.
