|Two bionic fingers and one bionic eye|
Harry rolled into the surgery center at 7 a.m. today to have a joint replaced on his finger. Immediately they took him back for his prep which included putting on a pair of sweet white stockings, a hospital gown, and a surgical cap. The nurse started the IV fluids but the “good drugs” didn’t come until about a half hour later. Immediately, he began singing “Acid Queen” from Tommy. After enjoying the drugs for twenty minutes they took him back to surgery and told me to head out to the waiting room. I was there about an hour and his doctor came out to say all went well and gave me the x-rays of his finger with the new joint. After another half hour I was summoned back to the recovery room and he was already dressed and very alert. Just a few more items of paperwork and he was wheeled out to the car. The nurses, anesthesiologist, and doctor were great. Harry’s doctor, Dr. Brad Stephens, looked to be about 19. They all remembered him from the last time he was there a few months ago to have the right index finger done. Now to some recovery!
