Becky has been taken back to surgery.
I met with Dr. Sherman and he apologized for the delay. He said there are strict guidelines and procedures in place for complicated infants like Becky. Her age and cardiac condition necessitate certain OR personnel. And sometimes that doesn’t always come together on time. He anticipates that all three procedures will take about 1 hour (10 minutes for the tubes, 10 minutes for the bronchoscopy, 35 minutes for the brain stem response test). Becky will be admitted either to the pediatric floor or the pediatric ICU.
I am so grateful that she slept almost the entire morning. And that the hospital Starbucks is open for another 15 minutes.
