In the OR

Laurie asked me to post updates on her surgery today. She’s been in the OR for about half an hour. They expect her to be there two hours, then in recovery one hour, so I’ll be seeing her around 2:30.

Everything seems to be going well right now, but it’s a good thing that the hospitals double check everything with the patient. They went over today’s procedures, and ended up with “and a lumpectomy or mastectomy”! No, no, no, and no. Sure, eventually probably, but not today. They called the surgeon in, and he told us that he thought today was just biopsies and a port catheter, and we said that we thought so, too. The paperwork was wrong, and got corrected and signed again. The biopsies and catheter are plenty to deal with for now.
