Greetings from the waiting room at. Columbia Presbyterian hospital in NYC. Big day. Sami is in the OR having a cervical spinal fusion and I am waiting. Keep your fingers crossed for us, readers.
1:30 pm Update: Sami’s still in the OR . A snack cart showed up at the waiting room door so I was able to get a soda and a water. Now I don’t have to worry about fainting from dehydration. The food was the craziest of crap – nothing but candy bars and chips. I hope a sandwich and coffee wagon shows up.
Have I mentioned that my plan is to squat in Sami’s room for the next four days and sleep in a chair? I can tell you that this is not a well thought out plan now that I’m about 8 hours into it. But I have a purse full of singles and fives to entice people to bring me coffee or possibly push me around. This is a big place and I’m not sure I can manage walking to the cafeteria. I did see a bunch of Jazzy s in the main lobby so if I can maneuver back to there I can commandeer one. Maybe hide it in the bathroom once Sami gets a room.
