Last Friday, when my wife was in the preparation room before she went to surgery, I noticed a big red Craftsman tool box sitting out in the hall. It was on wheels so could be moved around. I pointed it out to my wife and told her it was where they kept the wrenches, claw hammers, screw drivers, chisels, files, drills, etc. that they wheel to the operating room with you so they have a choice of what tools they will use on her eye. Of course they will use the rubber mallet first, right? It just looked so out of place in such a perfectly clean environment.
I know you are tired of hearing about this subject so will only update if there is any change, but for now you must either bear with me or skip to another blog. My wife changed into a hospital gown which must have been a "one size fits all" because she only weighs 92 pounds and stands 5'-2" tall. She wrapped it around her a few times. Then she got to sit in this very comfortable looking reclining chair and the suit was plugged into a unit that blew warm air into the suit blowing it up so much I though I may have to tie her down so she wouldn't float away. She had a temperature control in her hand, so had control over the heat blowing in. Even with the heat turned off, it still blew the air in. Now tell me, doesn't she look comfortable:
That surgical center was really great. They made sure that she was comfortable at all times and the personnel were really friendly. It made her short stay there as easy and comfortable as possible. She was treated just as great after she got out of the operating room. Our highest praise for the people at Memorial Hermann Surgery Center Red Oak, located just north of 1960 and west of I-45 north of Houston, TX.
Tomorrow, she goes to see the doctor for her post surgical check-up. She is doing just great, but it will take some time for her to adjust. Now you all have a great day, you hear?
