Surgery CANCELLED !!!
I have pulled myself together after a major major meltdown and a long nap. I cried myself to sleep.
The Hospital and the cancer center each have operating rooms.
The cancer center rooms are used by cancer patients and kids from the childrens hospital next door.
This is what I was told.
There was some type of "flood" and the operating rooms cannot be used right now. And since Stanford is also a level 1 trama center, every schedualed surgery had to be cancelled to leave room for any tramas that might come in. Also for the critical need and life threatening cases.
Hubby talked to the onc when I was sleeping, and she is livid. She feels that I should not have been bumped out. Thats a bit scary to hear.. But she will try to work out something as soon as possible. But if Stanford has there way/say it might be next week! Onc is pissed. I was a bit confused,after I calmed down, about why she would be so mad, things happen.
Well, this might be why.
Hubby also talked with our daughter who happens to work at the hospital psych inpatient unit. She has the insider scoop. She said that the "flood" happened LAST week! She was able to double check on the latest info, and really seems like the flood issue is over.
So, maybe that is why the onc is so angry.
This is the last thing I need right now. Good grief, enough is enough!
Maybe the onc will work out something for thursday. I just want this over and done with.
I am trying really hard to be strong, but feel so vulnerable.
Thats the latest.
PS Thank you so much for your prayers and kind positive words. It means so very much to me.
Maybe you all prayed so well and so much that your prayers got me out of having surgery...Ha! Still have a little humor left in me, or maybe it's the extra pain pill I took tonight.
