Thursday: PeaceHealth's Riverbend Hospital

On Thursday, my little sister had major surgery. It was supposed to last about 4 or 5 hours, and actually lasted 8 hours. It got a little complicated near the end, but she is doing fine now. Her doctor is the nicest young man, with a gentle demeanor, and we thank him and his crew for a job well done.

The new hospital in Eugene opened last year. It is a wonderful, beautiful place. This is something that I hadn't seen before: all over the place, like in an airport, there are screens where you can track your patient's surgery progress:

This was Angie, with Dr. Teh:

My Mom, Nanny, Julie, Dad, Jill, Kari, Dick and Vicki (not pictured) and I were there in the surgery waiting room, keeping each other company and trying to keep our minds off of what they were doing to Angie. Also joining us was Nanny's friend who was waiting for her husband to finish up his surgery.

Kari and her Nanny. Kari works at the hospital.
It was fun to see her office and meet her coworkers.

Mom, Nanny and Julie again.

This hospital is like a fancy hotel or something. It is located in a park like setting on the McKenzie River and everything is peaceful and pretty. And, the parking is all free.
