Today, I spoke with a nurse from the nearby hospital where I’ll be having surgery. She needed to go over my complete health history, which took quite a bit of time. I provided the names of all of my current prescription medications, as well as their dosages.
Given my longstanding history of airway occlusion, my ENT recently provided specific instructions for my anesthesiologist to follow. He also supplied his cell number as a reference, if necessary, for my physician and/or anesthesiologist.
I’ve also been busy with forwarding my progress notes for yesterday’s individual psychotherapy sessions, to the director of social work at the nursing home where I work. She needs to receive copies of all of my session notes.
My back pain has really been bothering me today, on this absolutely gorgeous summer day. I’m really looking forward to relief after next week’s surgery.
