Jay's Surgery: Day 2

2017_04_06

Fraser Health provides a booklet for bypass patients detailing the expected progress both in the hospital and after release. This is the second day after the surgery, so Jay is ticking off goalposts which we've know about for a few months. Today, when I first turned the corner, I noticed he didn't have those tiny oxygen tubes in his nose.

He had just received breakfast when I got there, it was mostly gone except for the bran muffin. He didn't say but I expect he thought it might be laden with transfats! If there's one post-procedure area in which he won't need to study, it's nutrition. In fact, he might be able to teach the teachers a thing or two. Jay has always been terribly conscious of a proper diet. In fact, one doctor commented had he not lived such a healthy lifestyle he might have had a heart attack in his 40's.

This morning, Jay was able to wash and shave. I helped. He appeared much improved after getting off the stubble. He should be doing a lot of walking, yet his pulse goes a little too high when he's up and about. I told him it is his heart jumping for joy after receiving a 100%-supply of oxygen for the first time in decades!

I rolled him into a class in a chair. They have a series of classes at 11:00 each morning.

I returned home at around noon for lunch. Friends are coming from Vancouver in the afternoon. They'll SkyTrain here to the apartment first. We can go back to the hospital as the 1:00 to 3:00 quiet time will be over.
