The Night Before Surgery: A 12 hour Lockdown

May 21, 2012

Earlier today I received a phone call from the hospital nurse who gave me a run down of the does and dont’s before surgery.

12 am – No food, pain killers, or sleeping pills after this time; however,  water is okay.

4 am – No Water, Candy, or Cola after this time.

6 am – Check-in time

8am – Surgery  (Mandibular Osteotomy, Tori reduction, wisdom teeth extraction)

During operation you are not allowed any electronic devices, and you must removal all jewelry.

The surgery is scheduled for 3 hours (so I’m hoping I’ll be able to get something to eat by lunch time).  Afterwards the doctor is going to admit you into the hospital for a couple of days for observation. Visitation time ends at 10pm.

Not too bad of a schedule. Thanks for your prayer.
