Today Diego was technically admitted to the hospital in preparation for tomorrow's 9:30 am surgery. Technically because he has a room at the hospital, #312, but they allowed us to take him home with the promise that he will be back in his room by 6 am.
*Note about Home: We have a condo 5 minutes from the hospital. I didn't want people to think we actually drove back to Austin!
Today was a very long day so we are happy to be home. Diego had x-rays taken, blood drawn, met with surgeons, nurses and finally got a room after 5 pm. We did get some good news. His surgery is expected to take 3hrs and not 5 like they first predicted. He may also be out of the hospital within 4 days, not 5. So if all goes well we will be back in Austin by Sunday :)
