Later this morning Sandi sees her cardiac surgeon. This is a followup visit to assess how she healed up from everything last month and to take out the stitches she still has in her chest and elsewhere. Based on a call last night just after five, they also want to do a chest x-ray this morning. We don't know what is up with that.
Hopefully, he will also have a better idea how to try again to get to the thing on her heart for the pathology sample. Obviously, doing the whole cracking the chest and stopping the heart deal is not the way anyone really wants to have to go to get the pathology sample. Our hope is that maybe they can come in from her left side through the ribs--instead of the right that they tried before---and get to it.
I am not quite as sick as I was so I am going with her. I am still on antibiotics so I should not be contagbious to others. If she was going for something routine, I wouldn't. But, with this being what it is, I really have to be there. For a lot of reasons, I hope everything is on time today.
