The Call part two

9:30. Beth arrives.  The inappropriateness reaches new levels.

10:15. My mom arrives.  We keep cracking jokes at Carlos' expense.  But it keeps the mood light.

10:35. The nurse comes to take Carlos to pre-op.  We follow like groupies then head to the waiting room to set up camp.  We'll get to see him once more before he goes back.

12:00. The witching hour.  We go back to sit at his bedside until it's time.  Carlos is a little woozy from his visit with Dr Feelgood.  He now has a Swan Ganz catheter in his neck and an arterial line.  He's in good spirits so we continue with the inappropriate jokes.  

12:40. They took him back and now the wait begins.  We have heard anything from 6 to 12 hours.
