Reginas "power" line removal was a success! We started driving to LA before 5 AM. We had to be in admitting 6 am. After admitting we had to wait almost 3 hours, and FINALLY 8.30ish Regina was given some Sleepy medicine... She was wheeled away from me into surgery area. I was sent into Post Op waiting area. After 20 minute wait I got a word that Regina was done and everything went fine:).
SHe slowly started waking up from surgery.. SHe was given some popsicles ( sp?). I got discharge information, what to do, when to do it, how to do it.... What to look for, ( like bleeding from surgery site, fevers, oozing... etc...). ANd then we started our drive back .
I AM JUST glad it is out now. Regina can finally take baths and start swimming. We still have to wait till it heals, but at least I do not have to worry about daily flushes, weekly dressing changes, making sure her line site is clean and not infected, dealing with Crescent Healthcare about supplies... hehe
