MONDAY — might have been

The only news today is that there may be news tomorrow.  It is quite likely the chest drain will come out tomorrow.  That will be followed by a move out of the ICU and up to the fourth floor.  The move could be on Tuesday or Wednesday.  Plans are not set yet.

It is increasing clear that Nancy is having no problem recovering from the surgery.  I wonder “what might have been” had she gone into the hospital for an elective operation that relied on heparin?  The initial use of heparin was with the Friday after Thanksgiving heart attack – not a seriously invasive procedure such as cutting one’s chest and heart open.  I wonder if she would have survived both the surgery and the heparin allergic reaction?

Having gotten the explanation of the operation posted last night I’ll not do any more now but hope to have something to report on Tuesday.
