The operation was done last evening, with no major hitches except that it started a couple of hours after the scheduled time, and that wasn't wholly unexpected. We waited outside, the Guy and I, his sister and her husband and the Elf - behaving himself better than usual, only throwing tantrums a couple of times. We barely dared to go and have some tea and snacks in case the doctors might come out and we wouldn't get to talk to them. We were back in time, however. After some more waiting, we were told that it's over. The doctors came out, and as soon as he saw my harried face, the doctor assured me that everything went well. They took us in to take a peep at the GuyDad lying in the recovery room. The GuyDad is thin - though not very weak for a seventy-year old, and we were worried that his body might not be strong enough to easily withstand surgery.
He looked around and waved cheerily at us, and all our fears melted.
The Guy stayed with him, while I came home for a night's sleep. As I made my way home, I thought about my aching body - and felt immense relief that that was all that I had to complain about, that everything had gone well and the GuyDad seemed okay.
Congratulations and best wishes to GuyDad.
Thanks a lot, IHM!
Great! I'm glad every thing went well!!

NuttyNits: Thanks. I read your post.
Gayatri: Why don't you email me and I'll tell you more.
I'm glad he's doing well. My mom is in hospital with a broken hip, so my post on "why I am a feminist" will be delayed.
dipali: I'm very sorry. I hope she's in not much pain and is better soon. The GuyDad is still in hospital, and it's been exhausting, taking turns to be by his side.
She's in traction until the surgery, and has been heavily sedated today, which is better for her as she's been in pain and is quite disoriented.
Yes, hospitals tend to be exhausting places:(
I hope your father-in-law recovers soon and all your lives get back on track.
