Waiting

for doctors that were to see her early this morning, for nurses that are too busy to administer the Zofran so she can stop heaving, for the surgeon to explain why he has changed the anesthesia.
 
ERCP (a scoping method to enter the small intestine, locate the duct, and remove the stone blocking the duct) was scheduled for today under mild sedation.  Now they are putting her in the OR, not the procedure room, and using general anesthesia.  She is terrified of that because of her very low BP (88/50).  Whenever someone shows up to give her more info, she will ask to have the gall bladder removed instead of just the stone if she must be anesthetized.  I agree.  Why take the chance of needing the surgery months from now and going through this again.  So we are waiting ......

I agree this is a better plan, but I am thinking they will buck at this. They won't be prepared to do this. Still insist! I am praying.

That's probably the best thing to do, hope they listen to you!

Don't back down. That gallbladder is throwing stones -- it's sick. Take it out or she'll continue having issues. Prayers for all.
