By the time they got the equipment, they had to postpone the surgery until today. So they fed her.
A ham sandwich.
Grrr. Insult to injury, right?
However, *today* - today she had the surgery, under a general when the local proved to be ineffective. And it went very well. She's much more comfortable now that the bones have been pinned and she only has a soft cast - and she'll be able to sleep in a bed at home, too. And they gave her a kosher meal, and a nice fruit cup. It's wonderful news.
She should be home tomorrow.
Tova Batya bat Tzvia, for those who wish to pray.
