Good Morning Everyone, it's 0800 hours, and Lisa is going in for her angiogram.
We had a wonderful nights sleep, it's amazing how comfortable a hotel bed is after 12 hours of hospital appointments. Lisa is doing well, her attitude is good, and we have come to a point where we believe we have every reason to be optimistic about the outcome of surgery. We have also, on the other hand, been made to understand that the surgery is going to be a major traumatic event, and that recovery time may be long. The nurse has told us not to be surprised, when she wakes up she will feel like she has been beaten up, thrown down the stairs, and run over by a truck but, also assured us not to worry, they are very good at pain management. She wants to be sure we don't mistake this for the surgery not having gone well. This also means that I will be spending every minute I can by her bedside, while she is in ICU this will mean that I will, most likely, not be using my computer, so I want to assure you all that I will post as often as I can, but please do not worry if there isn't much on Saturday. Once they move us to a regular room I will be able to use my laptop again and will make regular updates.
The family liaison area (read fancy waiting room), that I'm in now, and will be tomorrow, is pretty nice. It has a single cup coffee maker, electrical outlets for the computer, and even more quiet areas further back, with recliners in them. One whole wall is large windows, it is so weird be sitting in a city with crazy huge buildings all around.
