sort of an update
We are having a different experience as the patient's family in the waiting room for my mom's surgery than we had for Whitney's surgery. Unfortunately, the updates are coming from a volunteer rather than a nurse. This is in no way the volunteer's fault, it is very nice that she is volunteering, but she does not have any details or information when she comes to give an update. We just received an "update" that they are "warming" my mom, because they have to lower the body temperature during the surgery. If they watch and everything looks ok, they will be closing her up. This is all we know, we do not know what all they had to do, how everything went, etc... I guess we just have to be patient and wait until we meet with the surgeon after the surgery to see how everything went and what the extent of the repairs/etc... were. This is all I know at this point - I will write more later when we find out anything else.
