The day started with a bit of confusion. My nurse said that the team that normally performs the procedure to drain the fluid does not work on the weekends and that I would have to wait until Monday. She did not realize that my surgeon had made a special request to have them here today.
The procedure was quick and easy. I was awake throughout, interacting with the team. They installed two drainage tubes with separate drainage bags. More hardware to lug around.
This evening, three visitors popped in for an hour and a half or so.
We will learn more of what the next steps are tomorrow. if i were to guess, i would say that they chances of me still being here on Monday are good.
