whoops! left a "hole" in my message.....meant to say, the things that differed perhaps between my experience and many, were that, the hospital i was in, was lacking a proper protocol to deal with a long wait, and having not enough anesathists to go around....things of which, i have had meetings with people over, and tried to get answers as to why this happened. they were events that nobody could see coming, this was hard to deal with for everyone, so it was not just...
