One of the reasons Maria wasn’t home yesterday is that the hospital said they were paging both the on-call neursurgeon and Maria’s regular neurosurgeon and neither one was answering. Well, Cathy saw the on-call NS in the cafeteria this morning and he was surprised to see they were still there. She said the hospital had been paging him and he said he never got the page. They also said that when they paged her regular NS a different doctor called back, so it sounds like they didn’t have the correct pager number for either doctor. Gee, I’m glad she wasn’t bleeding to death.
But all that nonsense has been taken care of and Maria is finally home.
