Today my brother had pre-op appointments with the Neurosurgery and Anesthesia clinics at UW Medical Center. They filled out all the necessary paperwork and described the entire procedure in detail. He will be under general anesthesia during the operation.
The schedule is pretty well set for the Tuesday surgery…
- 5:15am – Arrive at UWMC, check-in.
- 7:30am – Surgery begins
- 12:00pm – Surgery expected to wrap up, wake him up, and begin talking to him to assess brain function.
- 1:00pm – Move to ICU room and available for visitors.
I’ll be heading over there sometime in the morning but I’m not entirely sure when. I might go sometime around 10am and take either my mom or my brother’s wife with me since they will likely be home still.
