Hello and welcome to HealingWell. Pull up a chair and sit a spell as we love new members.
I am sorry about the predicament you find yourself in waiting for your ITU bed. In Britain there are just 3.5 intensive care beds per 100,000 people, a fraction
of the level of Germany and America. I sure wish you were in the USA but we can not change the facts.
Do your surgeons put patients scheduled to have surgery that need and ICU bed postop on a list? What happens if a major trauma or cardiac patient comes along and is given your bed. I guess a good question for your surgery is to ask for a time line on the wait for a bed as well as how soon can you fly post op.
9 hours is a long flight so plan on getting up and walking around to prevent and blood clots from forming in your legs. It is exciting to know you are coming to Florida to renew your wedding vows - how special that is and a early Happy Anniversary to you.
