Providence Hospital

D-DAY 0600, May 24, 2007

View from day surgery parking lot. Bright eyed and bushy tailed...I don't think so. Nervous - yes. Ready for surgery to start...yes and no...soon there's no turning back.

D-Day 0603

Day surgery entrance. On arrival, security had a man pinned to the ground. Probably knew Brandy was coming and was just clearing the vacinity for her arrival. Nice thought but probably not the case.

D-Day 0605

Welcome to Providence day surgery reception. All smiles for Brandy's new smile. See, told you, bright eyed not so much, bushy tailed...close.

D-Day 0615

Nothing but the finest duds for those about to suffer a travesty of pain. Ms. Lee is her nurse, and the anesthesiologist is Dr TBD. This was spa like treatment. They put hot towels over my legs, and eventually 4 additional towels were used to combat the retreating veins in her forearms. It took three tries to get her IV started...ouch. Twice in the left arm/hand and finally victory in the right. Eventually the 2nd nurse, Ms. TBD finally won the battle. IV is flowing, and her nerves are starting to kick in. Two types of nausey meds were discussed. One is included in her sedation medication so you receive it by default. But the second is the common motion sickness patch which goes behind your ear. I got the additional patch just in case, supposedly lasts for 7 hours. We'll see if it helps.
