I’m sitting in the hospital listening to Christmas music (thank you Pandora!) and watching Angie sleep, more or less peacefully. Amazing what a shot of morphine can do for you. Today went well; we arrived around 6, they took her back about 7:45, and she was back from the recovery room by about 11. The Doc says everything went smoothly and he got what he needed while he was in there. I think the tally was 2 diseased lymph nodes and about a dozen others that will be biopsied to double check that there was no further spread of the cancer.
Although the nurse this morning promised that “best case” we would be able to leave in about 4 hours, Ang wasn’t exactly ready to go home by this afternoon. Imagine that? A little while ago they admitted her for the night and moved us up to a room (604 East). Closer to what I would consider the best case. We will see the surgeon again tomorrow and likely go home sometime in the morning.
Thank you all so much for your thoughts and prayers, and Angie should be back soon!
