Surgery went fine


Whaat all went wrong last time, did go right this time. I had to be at the hospital at 8.30, but as I didn't want John to take some hours off I let him deliver me on my work and asked if one of them good get me to my room later. It was fun being on my work for an hour to hear how it was going there.

Around 8.30 I was going to my room and the nurse got a call even before I was in the room that the OR was ready for me. I was planned around 0.30 pm and now it was only 8.45 am when they phoned. So we than went very fast to undress and get me my premedication, than have a fast drive to the OR and there also everything went very fast to get me ready, the one in front of me was not in time on the hospital and was put behind me now.

On the OR we had a lot of fun as first they thought I was the other patient and the doctor said well I see we are going to do your right ankle today. Now that doctor won't say that anymore lol. He understood fast that it was only putting the screws well in place on my left ankle and that he had to leave my right ankle where it was. With all these things we had a lot of fun in the OR and had a lot of laughs. I knew a lot of the people in the OR. They also looked with a scoop on both sides of my ankle if it was now good in place, so I hope it will be perfect now. I am not in a lot of pain, but am just very tired again. Was home already the same day around 6 pm. The pic is from a week ago at that time my ankle was already a lot less swollen than he was before.

Hoi Judith, dat ziet er erg pijnlijk uit! Gelukkig maar dat ze erop tijd achter kwamen dat je niet de 1e patient was. Stel je voor dat je al onder zeil was voordat je de OK in kwam! Heel veel sterkte noghoor, maar wel fijn dat het nu allemaal zo goed ging. Groetjes, Marjolein.

Hi Judith, 't ziet er nog niet zo mooi uit. Maar nu mag je de zes weken toch beginnen aftellen. Als ik dichter zou wonen, zou ik je vereren met een bezoekje. Nu zal het bij virtuele bezoekjes blijven. Hopelijk doen ze toch deugd!
