Post-Op

Thanks for your messages; my apologies for not posting, many things to say, but having a hard time navigating the words.

Little A is recovering from her surgery and pneumonia bout. Yes, she had pneumonia while she was operated on.

What's that? You think that possibly since she had pulmonary/breathing issues she shouldn't have undergone surgery while her lungs had fluid in them? Huh. Bummer you weren't there to check them before she went under. Could have saved us a lot of worries and frustrations and hours on the phone with various hospital representatives. Serves me right for leaving that kind of technical stuff in the hands of medical professionals, I guess.

Anyone have a spare copy of "Being a Doctor" for Dummies? Her surgeon needs one.
