We came to the hospital as scheduled at 11:45am. We got checked in and headed into the pre-op area. They asked if he had taken the prescription pill and applied the nasal cream he was given... but he didn't receive either of those yesterday.
We got the standard merry-go-round of doctors, nurses, questions, and a shave. And there was lots of waiting. And more waiting. Almost the entire length of Red Dawn. And then they wheeled him to surgery.
There's a board that shows each patient and where he/she is in the surgical process. Right now, it has Chris blocked out for another 3 hours. It may be longer if they have to replace the valve instead of repair it. Thanks for all your thoughts & prayers!
