I went to the hospital this morning to be admitted for the surgery on Saturday. I was told that beds are allotted on a first-come, first-served basis, so we went early.
Turns out there was no need for that. You go in, submit your paperwork, and then around 2pm the bed coordinator works with a doctor to figure out which patients will be admitted. I call after 5pm and they tell me whether I get a bed. If I don’t get one today, my paperwork gets resubmitted for the same process tomorrow. I would appreciate any positive energy you can send to the bed coordinator today so that I can get a spot and get this done!
My procedure is sort of an elective procedure (I don’t see it that way, but I’m sure doctors do since the *gold standard* for foot drop is an AFO), so I’m not sure where I’ll fall in the priority list. I guess we all need to be hoping that everyone in Qatar stays REALLY well today and tomorrow!
