More drama on the home front.
Mom was supposed to get clearance from her heart doctor for the hip surgery on Monday. However, she missed it, and Dad thought the visit 2 weeks ago for a different item (Carotid) would take care of it, and I missed seeing on the paper work as well (it was the first of several items highlighted. I think I thought the visit scheduled was for it as well.). So after the visit this week, clearance was needed from her heart doc. Which I thought wouldn't be an issue last I heard of it. Comes a call this noon from Mom asking me to take her to her old heart doc.
So until the "new" (October for all, but had been her Pacemaker doc for years) heart doctor cleared her, the surgery would be postponed. Appointment is tomorrow (earliest) for a nuclear study. However, the results need to be reviewed and a report sent to her heart doc, which means around Tuesday.
Of course, Dad and Mom don't want to postpone it, so they decided to make an appointment with their old heart doctor (the one that (IMO & Dad's Opinion) caused him problems years ago and earlier this year in not catching he needed a Pacemaker) for the clearance. He only did an EKG, and signed off on the surgery.
However, neither my sis nor I trust him. And Dad didn't either after this past summer, but all of a sudden, it's fine because they both want the surgery on Monday.
The other fly in the ointment, is that after her knee surgery (the same side as her hip now), her legs swelled and a doc at the rehab place was concerned she might have DVT. It went away, but my sister and I are both concerned about it now. And Dad doesn't remember it.
So the ortho doc has an opening on the 30th for her to postpone to, and my sis and I are working on both parents to accept it. They were afraid that it would be postponed farther out, so I think we may have them convinced, but I will work on them tomorrow.
Oh, and did I mention that she complains about how much pain she's in and wants to get it done ASAP, but doesn't take her pain meds?
But I'd much rather have both of them around than not.
