The OR is booked for 6 hours, we will be told when he goes in and that clock starts ticking. He’s in the prep process right now. I am with his mom, aunts and sister in the surgical family waiting room. He won’t be going back to the floor he was just on post surgery as he will likely be headed to either ICU or a surgical recovery floor.
He was administered adavan via his iv prior to his departure and had some precious words for us, such as “greetings earthlings” and “surfs up dude” both complete with the corresponding hand signals. I am looking forward to his recovery when he has other fun things to say 🙂
