My sister is scheduled to have a heart valve replaced on Weds. She also has an aortic aneurysm that may need attention once they’ve taken a look inside.
We’ve checked several times and been told repeatedly that her cardio unit was one of 2 in the area that was set aside for serious heart issues and that COVID was unlikely to impact her surgery. Today she got a call. She is still scheduled for surgery, but it may be postponed or cancelled. The other unit in the area has been given to COVID patients and they are sending their really dire cases to “her” cardiac unit.
She needs this surgery. I’m scared. I also don’t want to scare her. I’m sure she’s doing enough of that for herself.
I would appreciate any good thoughts anyone can spare.
