At 8:00 am, Jeff and I were with J.J. 24 hours prepping procedures kept him from getting a good rest but otherwise he was in his usual good humor.
During the midday, Jeff and I left for a couple hours to shop at Centro commercial Ińaquito. Interesting experience. Our bill at ETA Fashion was $52.82. Jeff gave the cashier $100 bill. She disappeared behind a counter and would not return with our change. Other shoppers were very patient. Everyone stood in line 6 feet apart and waited. When the cashier reappeared, she apologetically informed us that she does not have a change for $100. The problem was solved when Jeff and I gave her the exact change.
We purchased 3 boxes of Cinnabon’s for the nursing staff and the security guards and walked back through La Carolina Park to the hospital.
Jeff and I stayed with JJ until he was wheeled into the operating room.
At about 9:00 pm, I was tossing and turning in the bed when Dr. Espinosa phoned to inform us that 3 1/2 hours operation went very well.
