Isita is in perfect form, but the surgeon has a bad cold and fever and this isn’t the kind of procedure you can delegate. We are going home. It is disappointing, stressful and exhausting – especially for Isita who has gone through all the build up in hospital overnight, including discussions about canulas in her wrist with the anaesthetist this morning. Despite being terrified, she was up for it.
Of course it is the only choice, and the doctors were very apologetic although it is no one’s fault. They have said we’ll come back later this week or early next.
