Well I'm so glad I decided to take the entire day off, because it turned out to be quite the ordeal. The hospital called us at 730am and woke us up! They told us to be there AT 9am for a surgery that would take place at 2pm. Luckily, he hadn't eaten or drank anything after midnight.
We arrived at 830a and I was able to stay with him the entire time until they took him off to surgery. Two hours later, he was recovering and finally able to eat...they gave him a blueberry muffin!
We were out of there around 630pm...ten hours of waiting around. The worst part for me was probably filling out the "Living Will" paperwork. That's always depressing to think about!
So we made light of the situation as best we could...and took lots of fun pics in the pre-op area. hehe I'm sure the nurses thought we were a little nutty.
The boypiece is now home and recovering. They put three pins in his hand (deciding against the plate) and he should be back to work, fully, in 6 weeks. Fingers crossed!
How was your weekend?
