Usually in solidarity with the person following the “no food or drink after midnight” directive, I hold off too. But this morning I grabbed a cup of coffee before anyone woke up.
The first waiting room had no cell reception. We survived.
I found this fun yellow donut to play with right as Sam’s surgeon was walking in the room. Also, worth mentioning is that during our conversation with him, somehow I ended up telling him, “You look good”.
Second waiting room. I entertained myself by playing a game with my boss (notice I am letting her win). I also texted with Dave while he waited over at Fairfax Hospital – you’ll see that sometimes technology still gets the best of him.
Recovery. Yes, she is on her cell phone.
After settling Sam in at home and leaving her under Grant’s watchful eye, I headed out to pick up prescriptions and food.
Once Sam was fed and medicated, I headed back out again to prepare for the arrival of the second patient.
He should be home in an hour or two. When I last heard from his sister, they were trying to get his pain under control. More updates later.
