Nov 21: We managed to get Skyler to get a good night's sleep by not telling him about surgery yesterday, somehow giving him vit K to decrease his INR, waking him up at 6am for a big drink of juice, take another INR (2.2) which was way too high (was supposed to be under 1.5), called the blood clinic. They said to take him to emerge and they would deal with reversal there. Left at 6:45am with dad. I got the other two kids organized and was making plans for pick-up woth friends when I received a phonecall (8am): SURGERY CANCELLED FOR TODAY. My GOD. This is the worst yet. cancelled on 2hours notice, AFTER showing up to the hospital?
Scheduled back on Nov 28th...
Nov 20: Just got a phone call. Back to Nov 21.
Nov 17: Now we have Nov 28th...
Nov 14: Another new date. Now we have Nov 21st scheduled. This is getting old.
Surgery date likely Nov 16 (Wednesday).
Possibly Nov 14 (Monday) because of a "likely cancelation".
That makes it next week. Skyler's cough is TONS better, with a mild residual cough. The sooner the better so he doesn't get to worry about it as long. The waiting is the worst part.
