So, I was so nervous all last night, had the joy of administering a Fleet enema, fasting, all that.
Got to pre-op, checked in, had the HUGEST IV line inserted into my hand, and then waited for 5 hours. There was an emergency, and all the ORs were in use and behind schedule.
My surgeon came and talked to me about the surgery, 3 hours behind schedule. Said it should be soon now, and took off.
Waited 2 hours.
My Ortho and the Access/Vascular surgeon came back - there was now another emergency. The Vascular surgeon was about to prep for her 4th surgery of the day - 3rd emergency.
They asked. Should we do it tonight? That would get me out of OR around 10PM? The vascular surgeon urged me to reschedule - so I did. She looked tired. Last thing I want is a tired surgeon.
Man, what a day. It was practice. Next week I won't be nearly as nervous going into pre-op.
My daughter, bless her heart, was so happy when I came home, she asked me if the Doctors fixed me. :-(
No honey, not yet.
