We spent the whole day sitting and waiting for my daughter to have her 4 wisdom teeth removed. She hadn’t eaten or drunk since 7am and they were taking the other ladies from the ward and they were coming back and I thought it was strange. Eventually at 4.30 we were told “sorry we have cancelled your daughter’s op as the equipment needed didn’t come back from the HSDU (sterilisation unit) at midday as expected and theatres have only just thought to ask why and were told that the generator went down but no-one bothered to pick the phone up and tell us!”
I was livid and poor Sian had got herself hyped up for it and was starving and we had all wasted a whole day sitting around. I was in a foul mood and in a lot of pain so just came home, took some pills and went to bed!!
Hope today is better but we now have to go through it all again!
Hope you have a great day!
