ICU update

ICU Update!

Heather is out of the recovery room and in ICU at Good Samaritan Hospital (i mentioned the wrong hospital earlier in the day). She looks great , is cracking jokes, and tends to fall asleep mid sentence - to be expected when morphine is being pumped into you. She is monitoring her pain and doing OK. Having L'il Ivy with her has brought great comfort. She will be in the ICU through the night and will hopefully be moved to a regular hospital room sometime Tuesday morning.

While waiting for Heather's surgery, one really must visit the waiting room on the second floor. There you can see some of Brockton's finest. Isn't it ironic that so many people in hospitals need to go out for a smoke - especially when their voices sound like on of the characters from the Simpson's? Not only that, but is it necessary to call EVERYONE you know from the waiting room and tell them your news in your LOUDEST voice?

OK enough of my rant - this is what waiting around for many hours does to a person. But anything for a friend. I must say, it is quite entertaining for the visitor to witness Heather's narcolepsy.

Well, she is going to get a good night's rest tonight and is in great hands with nurse Suzanne.
Night all!

  1. Thanks for the update! Julie, you should walk around the waiting room and narrate the blog to all the loud mouths.
    Also, it might not be a bad idea to take advantage of her narcoleptic state. The next time you visit her, wear her awesome pink and orange cha-cha heels. When she asks why you have them tell her she gave them to fact, those were her first words after the surgery.
    OK, my bedside manner is tinged with shenanigans but of course I hope Heather feels better by the hour. I'm sending out the positive vibes~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
