They seem to have worked.
(for those who cannot see previous posts)
Judy got through the surgery fine – I’ve seen photos! (see below)
The only problem was with scheduling (bureaucratizilla!). They required us to be there @ 0800. When she signed in, they said her surgery was scheduled for 1400!!!
At length, they said it MIGHT be earlier.
The took her back for prep @ 1130, said they would bring me back to sit with her in about a half an hour. At 1245, I asked, and they escorted me back(!?)
She went into surgery a bit after 1300, and the doc came out to educate me just before 1500. A large bone spur was removed, and the tear in her rotator cuff completely closed. And some rough edges polished(!)
AGAIN, thank you everyone for your support and kindness!
PS: Photos for your perusal! (IF I got them correct)
