MEANWHILE, BACK IN THE ER
Current mood: lonely
Category: Life

 

BACK AT THE ER IN ST. GEORGE.....LIKE I MENTIONED IN MY LAST POST, IT TOOK A WHILE BEFORE THE DOCTOR CAME BACK.  HE SAID HE HAD BEEN TALKING WITH MY SURGEON IN VEGAS AND MY FAMILY DOCTOR IN ST. GEORGE.  MY SURGEON GAVE HIM INSTRUCTIONS ON WHAT HE WANTED HIM TO DO FOR ME.

AS THE DOCTOR TALKED TO LISA AND I, IT WAS KIND OF LIKE A DREAM AND I THOUGHT TO MY SELF, HE'S JUST KIDDING!  AND I EVEN ASKED LISA IF HE WAS KIDDING.  OF COURSE SHE SAID NO, DOCTORS DON'T KID ABOUT THINGS LIKE THIS.  SO HE WAS VERY SERIOUS AS HE EXPLAINED THAT MY SURGEON IN VEGAS WANTED HIM TO PUT ME ON A RESPIRATOR OR 'INTUBATE' ME.  THE SCAN SHOWED THAT MY THROAT WAS BLOCKED BECAUSE MY ESOPHAGUS WAS CROOKED AND WAS BLOCKING MY AIRWAY.  

INSTANTLY THE TEARS BEGAN TO FALL FROM MY EYES.  NOT ONLY WAS I A LITTLE FRIGHTENED, BUT THEN THE DOCTOR PROCEDED TO TELL ME THAT HE WAS GOING TO LIFE FLIGHT ME ON A PLANE, NOT A HELICOPTER.  HE TOLD ME THAT IF I WAS HIS MOM, THIS IS THE WAY HE WOULD SEND HER.  MY SURGEON WAS GOING TO HAVE TO GO BACK IN AND FIX MY PROBLEM, SO I HAD TO GO DOWN TO LAS VEGAS TO THE UNIVERSITY MEDICAL CENTER.  IT IS THE BEST TRAUMA CENTER IN THIS AREA.

THIS WAS ALL REALLY NICE AND GOOD, BUT I'M SORRY, I DON'T WANT TO GO!  PLEASE! 

THE DOCTOR EXPLAINED TO ME ABOUT BEING INTUBATED, AND THAT I WOULD BE SOUND ASLEEP, AND WOULDN'T EVEN KNOW THE TUBE WAS THERE.  HE PROMISED ME!  

LISA CALLED MY SON, HER HUSBAND, JEFF AND TOLD HIM WHAT WAS GOING ON, THEN SHE CALLED MY HUSBAND RON TO LET HIM KNOW HE NEEDED TO GET THERE ASAP.  AND IT SEEMED LIKE IT WAS NO TIME BEFORE THEY GOT THERE.  WE DIDN'T HAVE TOO MUCH TIME FOR TALKING.  THE ANESTHESIOLOGIEST IS THE ONE WHO HAS TO DO THE INTUBATION, AND HE ONLY HAD A FEW MINUTES BETWEEN PROCEDURES.  SO I HAD TO GO, NOW!  OMG!  AS I WAS BEING WHEELED TO THE ROOM WHERE THIS WAS GOING TO BE DONE, MY HUSBAND RON AND SON JEFF, AND LISA ONLY HAD A MOMENT TO KISS ME AND TELL ME GOOD BYE.  JEFF HAD BROUGHT HIS FRIEND, GABE WITH HIM TO THE HOSPITAL, AND I PUT MY HAND OUT TO HIM.  BLESS HIS HEART, HE GRABBED MY HAND AND SQUEEZED IT AND TRIED TO SAY SOMETHING TO ME.  I THINK HE WAS AS UPSET AS MY FAMILY WAS.

 

MY FAMILY WAS TAKEN TO THE FAMILY ROOM WHERE SOMEONE EXPLAINED WHAT WAS HAPPENING AND WHY IT WAS ALL HAPPENING SO FAST.    I WAS GLAD THAT THINGS WERE MOVING FAST, FOR ME.  BUT I WAS WORRIED ABOUT MY HUSBAND AND MY FAMILY AND I KNEW THAT THIS WAS GOING TO BE HARD ON THEM!

THE ANESTHESIOLOGIST WAS REALLY NICE AND EVEN THOUGH HE WAS IN BETWEEN PROCEDURES HE WAS VERY GENTLE WITH ME AND BEFORE I KNEW IT, HE TOLD ME GOOD NIGHT AND I WAS OUT!   OFF TO DREAMLAND AND SOON TO BE ON THE JET TO LAS VEGAS.  ONE TRIP THAT I WAS SO GLAD I SLEPT RIGHT THROUGH, AND REMEMBER NOTHING ABOUT! 

I WILL CLOSE FOR NOW, BUT WILL WRITE MORE LATER.  UNTIL THEN~

GOD BLESS
