Crammed at the PICU.

It seems odd that you have to wait for days for a surgical procedure this important. It’s comforting to know that as long as Abbe gets his Prostivas (that is what the prostaglandin drip is called) he’s in no danger. Or so they tell us. He’s next on the list with the surgeons. Because it’s an emergency, he will be put ahead of all planned surgeries. It’s just that the pediatric intensive care unit is crammed at the moment. And when that happens they don’t perform surgeries other than in cases of extreme emergency. With his drip Abbe does not fall under that category.

But just a minute ago, Abbe’s nurse came to tell us that the operation is planned for tomorrow.
Relief! Anguish!
