The wonderful wizard of
“ Caudal Epidural Steroid Day Surgery”
Finally the day arrived, after postponements, and months of waiting and waiting, we went to the CT and Radiology department, as it was written on the papers. to be told Hugh’s name was not there. Panic, although I tried to be calm.Finally, when I said I had a phone call to say the theatre list had been printed, and he was to be there at 11.30 a.m., Nil by Mouth from 6 a.m. the lovely lady did some phone calls, and directed us to the Day Surgery Department.
Paper work, lots, Linda, you were a dream come true, calm, helpful, and so understanding. Into the next room, 8 beds, another huge room with massive easy chairs, and another room, for the youngest people.
Off to theatre just before 2 p.m., and allowed to come home at exactly 3 p.m. Thanks, Mel.
The lovely Doctor explained everything beforehand, and hoped all would go well. It did. Thanks, Dr B .,and your theatre staff.
Maybe this will be the hoped for miracle. Life continues. Sleep will be so welcome tonight, after some nights of waking so early, today, up at 4.45, breakfast all done by 5.30 a.m. I am bushed, from top to toe.
Hugh has a smile tonight, and hopes for pain-free days.
This was taken at Wellington Airport, with snow falling.
Taken at one of Hugh’s favourite spots, high in the Tararua Range.
