Yesterday was a very long day. We reported to the hospital at 10:00 a.m. Jeff’s actual surgery was approximately 3 hours long, but it was nearly 8:00 p.m. before we were alerted he was in recovery. We finally got to see him again around 10:00 p.m.
As you can imagine, Jeff was a little groggy and utterly exhausted. Considering the circumstances, he looked great and he sounded completely cognitive.
His neurosurgeon limited the time he was allowed to have visitors as he didn’t want Jeff overstimulated. They didn’t have to force the time constraints. Once we saw Jeff was doing well and ensured his nurses were meeting his needs, we left so he could get some sleep.
Jeff had already had a super long day and while in progressive care, medical staff would be in and out of his room every hour primarily doing neurological tests. We all knew he was in for a very long night as nurses fussed over his well being. His overnight nurse was absolutely fantastic. When we left, I knew Jeff was in phenomenal care.
Jeff saw his surgeon this morning and it sounds as if they will be transferring him to a normal room today and he’s still on track to be discharged tomorrow!
I don’t have much of a medical update at this point. The surgeon called last night to let us know Jeff had been taken to recovery. He spoke favorably of Jeff’s condition and a successful surgery, but he didn’t elaborate on details.
