Greg here. I was able to visit Patsy briefly in the ICU last night, and again just a bit ago, but I cannot stay in the room with her. Her nurse tells me Patsy is in a lot of pain and that she wants her to rest – something she feels she would not do if she knew I was there. So I’m in the waiting room waiting for her surgeon, Dr. Holcomb, to make his rounds.
Holcomb did not prescribe the morphine pain pump last night as they wish to ensure the stability of Patsy’s vital signs first. Maybe she can have one after being released from ICU.
Ann hung around quite a while last night and helped out, and Sharon is furnishing some valuable back-up for me when I have to leave.
