Elsa and I arrived at around 11:30am at Brigham and Women's Hospital. She cried when they poked her for a blood draw. She misses her port.
After being admitted, we waited in the waiting area, and then went to the lower floor of the hospital for Elsa to be prepped for surgery.I took the pictures below while she waited.
Here she is beginning to play hide and seek.
After talking to a team of nurses, who put on an IV line and asked her a bunch of questions and gave her a pillow, and warm blankets, and pampered her, she spoke to the anaesthesiologist. No dilaudid, it was agreed. Last time they gave her dilaudid after surgery, to take care of her pain, but it made her feel miserable, so this time it was agreed that dilaudid is out of the question.
I left after a while when the anaesthesiologist came to start preparing Elsa to enter the operating room.
It's now 2:19 pm, so I am going to go to the waiting room.
