Sorry for the long absence and the silence on the two stories of the day. I've been preoccupied with an unexpected complication for the First Mate all day long and just started to catch up with e-mail and news feeds. The FM has to have some routine maintenance tasks for evaluating her transplants every six to nine months, including a biopsy, which normally is no big deal -- just a half-day in the hospital and an evening of bed rest. In the past, I'd take the day off and hang out, hospiblogging, but today I decided to go into the office and get some work done, as this has always been a non-eventful task.
Until today, of course.
Apparently, the biopsy ruptured a small blood vessel and forced the doctors to stop the other tasks about halfway through the procedure. When the bleeding continued (a very small amount, but just persistent), the doctors decided to admit her overnight and keep an eye on the situation. I bounced back and forth between the office, the dogs at home, and the hospital tonight. The doctors are very hopeful this will all resolve itself in the morning and they can continue the procedures and send her home -- but in the meantime, I'll be bouncing around a bit.
I'll probably miss my MOB party tomorrow, unfortunately, and we'll be putting off the last of the Christmas shopping, but other than that, this isn't a big deal -- more of just an unexpected, Murphy's Law headache. Now that I'm home for the evening and the mutts have decided that they're stuck with Daddy for the night, I can get back to the headlines and find out what the heck happened all day long. I'm sure that CQ readers are way ahead of me on these topics, but that's usually true anyway.Sphere It View blog reactions
