No food or water after midnight. Since it is Saturday, my surgery time was a moving target. I will be coming back to my new room. GBMC has several rooms for folks that will be here a long time. The room is positively pressurized to keep out the Germs.
They gave me a bag of platelets in prep for the surgery. My counts are all critically low now although I feel pretty damn good. Makes you wonder if there is sick Garry Gallaway running around while I am in the hospital
They sent for my at 1:15. Got upstairs in pre-op and got to watch TV for 1.5 hours. Finally got in for my first surgery ever around 3 or so. Interesting experience. They got me all hooked up started the IV. Quick injection and the next thing I am waking up while the Dr. is messing with something on my chest. I proceeded to say he is the man and tell him I am getting him a gift certificate to Bluestone since he has done the inaugural surgery on me. I guess I got on his nerves enough and I was back out. I thought he shot the Anesthetist a stare
