After a quick trip back to the Variety House I went to visit Heather in the PACU. I was able to stay about fifteen minutes, ten minutes more than I was supposed to. She has good color in her face and was able to lift her leg so the nurse could put a pillow between them.
Heather told me the doctors were talking about breakfast when they started the anesthesia. They asked Heather what she wanted and would pump it through the I.V. She said she wanted to go full fat - pancakes with butter pecan syrup. She also told me the anesthesiologist told her she had great range of motion for having a fused neck. Heather was very worried about the intubation.
The nurse said I could come back at 7:30pm to see her again. She should be moved to the NSICU after 9pm tonight. Keep those comments coming. I'll try to print out the blog entries before I go see her at 7:30. I'd better go check when the library closes. That's where I intend to print them out.
