Dad's just been wheeled off for surgery. We had to check him in at 6.30 this morning to get his broken collarbone (of two weeks ago) fixed up. Once he was in the day surgery area (even though he's staying in overnight) we could only sit & wait for a couple of hours. Being in the 'second AM' group - whatever that is - we had plenty of time to chat & listen in on what was happening with the other patients. We were hoping the surgical team didn't get their left & right confused for one poor guy after we heard the nurse saying to a doctor "No, it's not that one. We're taking *this* eye out." We couldn't help but laugh after a guy in full surgical gear and gumboots - covered in blood - walked around the corner just after that.
