#427 A little rain! More on mom
Thursday, June 14, 2018
Flag Day celebrated in Dr. offices, Coordinator offices and hospital pre-registration. And 4 tiring hours later we had the entire scoop on what's happening. The TAVR coordinator was the most informative step by step.
#1. Admit to the hospital 12 midnight !!!!!! Why midnight? They bring all the TAVR patients in then and start preps. Suggested someone stays with to talk with the surgeon at 6 AM.
#2. Preop takes over an hr., surgery over an hr. then to ICU
#3. On her back for 8 hrs. (discharge not for a while) Might sit up in bed.
#4. next day, a chair for a short time and a short walk
#5. Transfer to step down unit.
#6. Maybe home on Weds. or Thurs.
Will be coordinating with this gal and case manager for home care. I think I am going to be a little tired. Going to hand some "duties" off to my brothers but probably not the night shift as that seems to be my normal when working!!
Mom was told the risks today and still plans on being great immediately after surgery. Might end up with a pacemaker but she is ready for being able to breath again and stop coughing.
That's the story.
The other fun thing is we are going to get rain. The depression in the Caribbean is on the move and will be getting here on Sunday night, Monday all day into Tues. Yep, just when we have all the running and hospital stuff. Good that we are only a mile from the hospital but still getting her in with heavy rains could be fun!! They don't have Valet service at midnight and we have to go through the ER.
Did get a shower of rain today of 0.2". The town next to us got 2 inches. But our time will come and green the place up again.
Hope you all have a great weekend. I am looking forward to hubby and brothers getting here on Sat. late afternoon. Thank you all for your comments on the last blog and I thank you for stopping in tonight/tomorrow.
