Lucy’s surgery

Lucy broke her neck the night before we left Portland and it has taken two months to get her in for surgery.

As a resident surgeon I prepped her for her big operation.  Her blood pressure was fine.

Mum watched over the procedure to ensure everything went smoothly.

Mum was the attending physician watching over the procedure to ensure everything went smoothly (and getting the needle through when it got stuck).

It was a success!

She's recuperating well and I'm keeping a close eye on her.  Although Mum reckons she could do with a bath.

    Very pleased Lucy finally did get to the top of the waiting list and into surgery. Looks as though the operation was carried out with great skill and care. Please keep us informed as Lucy recuperates. PS It is safer to get a separate person to do the anaesthetic – maybe Rafa could be the anaesthetist next time. (That’s anesthesiologist where you live).

    Trust Americans to have a different name for it. Lots of examples: aeroplane/airplane, boot/trunk, footpath/sidewalk – and that’s just a few examples! Good to see Lucy getting back to a full life.

    When Lucy has fully recovered and had that all important bath, I suggest she would enjoy a beauty makeover. The hairdresser could dye her hair pink – a hair colour that is fashionable here among the youthful and stylish.

    Thank goodness Lucy had you and your Doc Mcstuffins gear and such a pretty quilt to lie on!
