So Far, So Good
Jen just gave us our first update of the day. So far, the surgery is going well. The word she used was “uneventful” – which Courtney just pointed out is exactly the word we want to hear. :o)
Now sure I would use the same word for the scene in the waiting room. A little while ago – after most of Team Nicole had headed downstairs for lunch – Donna was showing Steve an adorable little teddy bear with angel’s wings that she brought for Nicole. Whispering (out of respect for the other families quietly waiting to hear about their loved ones who are in surgery), she said to him, “What do you think? I don’t want to get her emotional, but listen to what it plays when you push its hand.” Then, BLARING out of this cute little bear came Bette Midler’s voice as LOUD as if she were holding a concert in the room: “DID YOU EVER KNOW THAT YOU’RE MY HERO …” Steve lost it. I lost it. My friend, Barbara Crowley (a nurse here who was on the phone with a co worker) lost it. Even our fellow waiting room occupants started to giggle as Donna frantically tried to turn it off or bury it under a couch pillow.
