Well, crap [Jun. 8th, 2009|10:28 am]

[Current Mood |irritatedirritated]

Ferrett was scheduled - again - for his major dental surgery tomorrow.

They just called and canceled it - again. For the same damned reason as before.

For a reschedule date? They offered July 2. The day before his birthday. Yeah, THAT ain't happenin'.

So he's not going to get the bone graft until at least July 21. And then only if they don't cancel again.

Grrr.

On a slightly related note, if you have not responded the the birthday Evite, please do so. I'm trying to get an idea of how many people will be around so as to plan the July 4 picnic - Evites for the picnic will only go out to folks that answered yes or maybe to the July 3 party.

If you wanted to get an Evite and didn't receive one, then email me with your email address. Send to zoethe at yahoo dot com. If you received one, forgot about it, and want me to resend, you can just comment here and I will take care of it.

What is this surgeon's problem? Can't y'all find somebody more reliable? That's got to be frustrating as hell.

It's not the surgeon, it's the anesthesiologist. If it happens a third time, we will definitely be reconsidering.

Like the man above me said - you can't find another surgeon? Hell, PEI has two or three, and it's a province of 100,000 people!

Good luck with it, BTW. :)

His anesthesiologist has to be in court as an expert witness tomorrow, and surgery involving taking bone out of his jaw is not something Ferrett is willing to do under local - I can't blame him.

Can they use gas?

Cause gas is good stuff. Don't need an anesthesiologist, and trust me - he won't remember a goddamn thing.

Don't know, and it's already canceled. But I'll ask the next time if it's going to be canceled again.

Just A Thought

It'd be a bit of a drive, but I could see if Dad's office's oral surgeon might have time to see him the next time he's in.
He generally uses conscious sedation rather than putting people fully under & uses a nurse anesthetist instead of an anesthesiologist.
This is the same guy who broke apart & extracted all 4 of my impacted wisdom teeth in one fell swoop & I only remember a minute or so of the actual procedure--in 5-10 second bits.

Re: Just A Thought

Thanks, but we've already prepaid for much of this. It will eventually work itself out.

No worries. :-)

I'm kind of baffled that the anesthesiologist has to be an expert witness twice when ferrett's surgery is scheduled.

Unless that was not the exact reason last time.

Either way, I hope he gets the surgery done in July. That sucks they keep putting it off.

Eek. No fun.

I think I got an invite, but I can't find it (switched mail servers... well, okay, it's probably mostly my disorganization and not remembering what name to search for it under, but we did switch mail servers...)

My response is going to be maybe, and I won't know until right before, FWIW.

I forgot if I answered or not, but I requested both the 3rd and the 4th off of work. The chances of my getting both off are slim, so I'm not sure which one to prioritize.

All right. You can add me as a definite for the 3rd, I think it's more likely I can get that off than the 4th.

Also, suckitude at that damn anesthesiologist. You should yell at them. XP That's just not professional at all.

I guess on the bright side the anesthesiologist must know what he's doing if he's giving expert testimony.

I mean, it's not like he's being taken to court for, say, selling anesthesia out the back of his van. Makes him seem much more respectable this way.

Uh, no. One of my fraternity brothers got a nursing degree, and after about two years of employment as a surgical room started a nice sideline as an expert witness on nursing. It was a decent sideline for him in terms of $$$, but I can't see how he was an expert with that little experience. So now I don't trust any expert witness.

Sorry about the surgery, babe.

I've been laid off again, so I'm going to have to miss this year's event, I fear, due to the airfare vs stupid mortgage thing. But I will most certainly be thinking of you both!

I had a bone graft done for a similar tooth implant... I don't know what happened, really, or where they got the materials for the graft. I don't remember if they gave me general or local anesthesia and laughing gas. In fact, I don't remember anything about that day, except that it was my 18th birthday and that I signed the waiver myself since I was legally an adult.

To sum up: No matter what happens, he won't remember a blasted thing. Really.
