Hi all, I'm in Northland New Zealand. My husband was diagnosed with severe Aortic Stenosis last October. He had the angiogram and other pre-op tests about a month ago. We got a call saying we should plan to be in Auckland City hospital for a replacement in the first week of July (next week) but they couldn't give us an exact date. We are 2 hours drive from Auckland and have to organise accommodation for me, our son and daughter in law while he is in hospital but we can't book anything until we have a confirmed date. I hope they will let us know a date within the next day or two because it is stressful enough without having to worry about finding accom close to the hospital. They said he will be admitted the day before the surgery so my query is to anyone who has gone through this at Auckland City - what time do they usually want you there the day before? We are driving down from Whangarei so have to plan this out. Any tips would be most appreciated. Kia ora.
