The medical sojourn of our daughter Megan continues and today, I spent 11 hours at Augusta University Medical Center. , That’s 25 hours in only two days in one week.
Megan is spending the night and Alicia left to join her for a slumber party, upon my getting home.
Augusta is a lot closer to Aiken than Mt. Pleasant, especially at 4:30 in the morning.
I’m not going to go into details, but the complications seem to have been mitigated by two surgeons and a resident. They put their heads together, weighed the odds, (shared them with us) and tried a long shot solution, that if it failed, would have made a bad situation even worse, requiring significant, emergency surgery.
They nailed it on the first try and in less than three minutes.
I think Megan has put up with more physical pain this past week than I have in my entire life. It sucks now, but I believe it will make her a better PA, because she knows what it’s like to go through these procedures, from getting a chest tube to having a PEG replaced four days after it was initially placed.
I think we all have had just about as much excitement as we can take in any given week.
