The Day Continues II

12:00 noon: In recovery and conscious (it's a relative term); able to move extremities and on target for coming home as scheduled EOD Friday.

No room yet, but I continue to be more impressed by this hospital than our usual one.

4pm Update: Still waiting for a room (assigned, but there is still a patient there; since this will likely be our situation in reverse tomorrow, all is well).

11pm Update: She has a room (and has had one for a few hours). No working telephone yet, but all still on schedule for being able scheduled to leave the hospital by early Friday evening.

The Day Continues I and 1a

Out of surgery; took slightly longer than expected but was about the norm for this doctor and this procedure.

I like this hospital more than our usual one.

UPDATE: Surgery went fine per the doctor. All on schedule for late Friday departure.

The Day Begins

It may be the euphoria of having been up for three hours, but so far all has been excellent. We arrived at the hospital on time (5:30 a.m.), and (unlike some previous experiences elsewhere) the time was filled with activity until Shira went in for surgery.

Not to mention that the hospital provides free wireless internet access in the Surgery Waiting Room and a few other public waiting areas.

Song of the morning: Lucinda Williams, "Learning How to Live," which was the first song heard this morning on the best radio station in the New York area.
