My sister is going to get her surgery dare sometime this week. She is soooo nervous. I keep telling her that it is a routine surgery and not to worry but she has had surgery before that was routine and it did not go well at all. The surgeon said it was his fault. He waited 9 hours to take out her appendix because he was allowing studen doctors to "learn" and there were 8 or 9 of them. Her appendix ruptured while she was in surgery and they had to drain the toxins out. Later on, she was released despite my mom's objections that she didn't look the right color. Later, she went back, the nurse ran to get the doctor after the pulse ox showed she was barely getting oxygen. She had pneumonia and one of her lungs collapsed. She had to get fluid drained out of her lungs while being awake. Then it was time for her to recover.
So....I don't know what to say. I tell her it is a different surgeon and the other surgery was a long time ago. I tell her I think it will be Kay but I can't promise it. I try to get her mind off of it.
She has a spark page but she is really shy so she doesn't write blogs or reach out to others. Too bad because it would make he feel better. I have her first on here. Everyone else is in no particular order. All of you are awesome. She says she never knows what to say. The only person who isn't shy in the family is my mom. Hsha.
The doctor said she could go home the same day after the surgery. He might use a laser but if the scar tissue from her appendectomy gets in the way then that is out of the window.
My mom is nervous for her too. My mom is afraid.
I keep telling my sister that at least they don't have to operate on her brain, heart or back.
My other sister tries to make her feel better too.
It's no wonder my my sister s nervous. She first got sick in February and it is almost Juky,
Nobody should have to wait that long.
:Have a good night.
