Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
She's home. The surgeon was two hours late because he had a major problem with a patient at the hospital (Pat was done at a "surgical center"). He didn't specify, but I got the impression it was one of those things that happen no matter how much work you do to prevent stuff like it.

Anyway, I got her home around 4:00 pm MDT. She ate a cookie on the way home (she had been something like 15 hours without solid food) and she slept for two hours. The phone rang and awakened her -- it was the surgeon calling to see how she was doing.

One eye is behind an eye shield and tomorrow at 8 a.m. (!!!) we see the surgeon (who is also our ophthamologist). She will probably get the eye shield off, a quick eye exam with the letter chart, and may get the left lens knocked out of her glasses.

Her right eye will be done on October 25 -- we have to work the surgeries around her travel schedule!
