Today I talked to Dr BB (her last name initials). I called Banfield early in the day to remind them I needed to know how much the surgery will cost and had a few questions for Dr BB. At a little bit after 6pm (they close at 6) she called me.
Our conversation went something like this:
me: Do you guys do CPR if her heart stops during surgery due to anesthesia?
Dr BB: Yes, unless we are otherwise told.
me: Oh I want everything you can do to bring her back if that happens. CPR, oxygen, epi... whatever it takes.
Dr BB: Ok, got it.
me: can you guys do a stain of the tissue removed at the hospital to determine if you should keep removing more tissue right away?
Dr BB: no, we have to send to pathology and wait for the results.
me: if she's been under a long time forget her dental, her teeth are not my priority right now.
Dr BB: yes, I understand. And, Dr T, head surgeon of the hospital changed her scheduled around so she can be here assisting me.
That made me feel calmer. I trust Dr BB, the fact that she asked the head surgeon to be there with her made me respect her more.
Then I asked how much the surgery will cost (BB has the Banfield wellness plan) which I was rather surprised with her answer. It will cost about half of what I thought it would.
I still have to crochet many baby hats and booties to pay for it but I will gladly do it for my Bambam.
I appreciate all the prayers. We need them.
