Last week, Chris arrived for the scheduled pre-op appointment to be told "There's no surgery scheduled for this week." After some high-tension phone calls, we were told that somewhere along the line, the message was crossed, and there was never a surgery scheduled for February 6. Chris solidly remembers the conversation where it was scheduled, but that doesn't change what was on the surgeon's schedule. In their minds, it was always scheduled to be the 13th.
So, this week we were ready, yet again. And...bam. Runny nose. Coughing when laying down. Waking in the night. We called Wednesday to check in, not wanting to go to the lengths we did before only to be turned away after putting on her surgical gown. Surgery checked with anesthesia, and they shut it down. So, no surgery yet again. We'll try again next month.
We're going to enjoy our Valentine's Day at home, gardening and working on projects for the new baby cousins!!
