Today my wife Sharon is scheduled for surgery at the Clinic. We got up early, travelled through heavy rain, and got there at 0800 – late – but things went forward.
When Sarah, Allen and I were i the pre surgery room with Sharon, I joked with the nurses. “Are these the responsible adults who are going to take you home?” One asked. “Don’t worry”, I replied, “We have a party bus!”
She went into surgery at 1045: we waited and worried: Allen and Sarah were great support.
At 2pm I was paged to a room for doctor consultation, and was immersed in anxiety, so I tried yoga breathing: it worked. What helped even more was the sight of Dr. Robyn Stewart walking in with a big smile: “Every thing went as well as could be expected!”.
We packed up, and at 5pm brought her home: long day.
