A rollercoaster ...

...Would be smoother.

I was right not to hold my breath. More bleeding, but he was stable enough after the incident to undergo the intervention they shied away from earlier. We were told it would be two hours before the procedure was complete; It's been longer than that, and still no word. Bob asked me to call Andy, so he's here. I'm equipped with a pager but I admit that I'm not enthusiastic about hearing from it. I probably won't be in the headspace to answer, but good wishes and vibes are still appreciated. Christ, are they ever.

ETA: Oh, FFS, I just got a call from Bob. He's somewhere in the hospital "in a cubicle" recovering. The buzzer/pager never went off. These fucking bastards.

FWIW, hospital personnel ALWAYS underestimate how long anything will take in real world time rather than ideal world, no other interruptions or prior procedures getting out of the way, etc. time. So I would say that things taking longer than they said is not, in itself, something to worry about. Wishing you strength and calm and good outcomes from afar.

You're right, of course. I'm just so tired, and I'm not thinking straight.

Definitely hoping you're at the end of this particular roller coaster ride, and that BB fully recovers ASAP.

I've just seen your ETA - oh, I'm so glad. I hope he's out of recovery soon and you can see him.

I'm sitting with him right now, and I've calmed down considerably.

I hope that was a tech meltdown and not a lack of consideration. >_<

Careless in any case.

I believe I shall have to apologize to the folks in IR tomorrow; I was rude to them.

Sh*t! That's the second time they've been crap at communicating with you. Bad dog, no cookie.

I'm feeling a lot better about them today, and more aware that I was probably over-reacting because of weariness and fear. They're not blameless, but they're not monsters, I finally remembered.

I am late reading this so I will add that I am glad that is seems to be going better again.

p.s. have all the good vibes you want as long as you understand mine are delivered in a near monotone.

Heh. Just remember that "monotone" is only another word for "pleasingly minimalist."
