While I always stand by a good rant (last nights post) this morning restored some good will toward surgeons. Yesterdays surgeon who never got back to us came in early and apologized, told Julie that the x-ray looked much improved, and that the tube would come out today by 10:00am. I arrived at just before 8:30 and they had already given Phenomenon the goofy meds. Of course it didn’t really kick in until afterward, and P is now having a very entertaining breakfast. Apparently the cereal is very small.
Taking the tube out was crazy; it looked more like starting a lawnmower than the gentle sliding I thought it would be. The worst part for P was him taking the tape off that was securing the tube site. Of everything that happens in hospitals, I think P would say that tape removal is the worst.
Looking forward to a good day of P moving around, increasing her lung capacity, and eating a LOT. And all signs seem to point to HOME TOMORROW MORNING!!!!
