I have learned so much in the past couple of months. I know I need to be so much more proactive with Jon's care than I have been. Fortunately a very informed anesthesiologist was not shy about stopping Jon's first scheduled surgery. It is not that I wasn't aware of the possible risks and complications of anesthesiology, I was just overwhelmed with it all. So with that learning experience behind me, and a list of risky and appropriate anesthetic agents I printed out from someone on this community site, we are moving forward with a new surgery date. Jonathan has 3 kidney stones that need to be dealt with, the first by surgery and the other two hopefully by shockwave lithotrypsy. The first procedure is scheduled for Tuesday, March 31st @ 10:30 am and then we go from there.
Have a blessed day.
