As We're Waiting in the Family Lounge at Montefiore Hospital
My mother had been camped out in the lounge since 5am. That's when she and my dad arrived. He went off to surgery prep at 5:30am.
At 2:45pm, Ma was told the surgeon was on the phone for her. There was no face to face visit, just a call.
The news at least was good. Operations successful, sarcoma removed, patient stable and in recovery.
