May. 13th, 2005 @ 07:04 pm While Discussing my upcoming Surgery with my Wife
She insisted that I promise to ask them for an opinion on my recovery, since I seem to be getting more and more forgetful.

While realizing that she has good intentions, I reminded her it was just plastic surgery this time, and that is all this particular hospitol has ever treated me for.

She said it was a hospitol and they were Doctors and would know, and I should have just agreed and let it go, but I had to say, what would a plastic surgeon tell me about my memory, when a neuro surgeon already said I would just get as well as I would, and no surgery could change that.

Being the optimist she is, she said, "Well you could have a tumor! They could operate on that while you were there!"

I agreed she was right at that time....

Yeah But

LOL, I know your right but my wife is actually very edjumikated.

A neurologist told both of us together that there would not be anything that could be done to repair my damage. The upcoming surgery is just to cut off all the extra skin on my head and smooth it up.

They might move hairs around, but I'll need at least one more surgery after this if I am ever to be able to go around without wearing a hat.

I realize she has my best intentions at heart, LOL, but to say to me, "You probably have a Tumor!" Just really is an opening for a debate, since as far as I know tumors don't develop from being wacked on the head, but sometimes it's just better to agree with her. ;o)

she just looking out for you, dude. you never know which doc might discover something that another didn't see. I'm learning that from the Xrew. BTW, do you ever get nervous anymore about going on anesthesia? I had general twice and had a flash of panic just before falling asleep that mebbe I wouldn't wake up.

Anesthesia is a Breeze

(Permanent Link)
Dunno why, but I have a very high tolerance for those types of medications. I remember, well I used to remember details from when I am just coming out of it, and I usually eat as soon as I can hold my head up.

That generally begins with an argument with the nurses who want me to start with a piece of ice, then a sip of water, then maybe something later if I can keep it down.

I understand why they say that, at one time I was a semester away from having an RN, but I never get nauseous from being under.

I plan ahead now, I order a full meal in my room and leave notes and instructions that no one is to touch it. Big Exclamation Points!!!!

Most of my nurses tend to like having me as a patient, because I do most everything myself, but I have had one or two get agitated with me for jumping up out of bed and unhooking the monitors if I feel like a walk, LOL.

excellent. I guess the nurses might get a little cross if you're all walking around hunky-dory and it looks like they're not doing their job! hah.

I will

I'll find a way, but what makes sense to one situation doesn't necesarily apply to all.

We each need to find our own sense of place here.

I wish I had a map.......

More Nightmares

(Permanent Link)
I was awake at 4.

It's the puppy's fault, I must have been fighting demons in my sleep again, and the dog woke me up by licking my ear.

She was whining like the house was on fire, I took her out, and she just stood and stared at me.

I still remember her keeping me from going into the house after I set off the bug bombs.

I wonder what dogs think about?

Good puppy! :) *pats the dog from far away*

I wonder what dogs think about?
Back in the 80's when did an internship and then I worked at the Bronx Zoo animal rides, I used to come home with all sorts of animal smells on me. My dog would come over as soon as I got home and sniff and *sniff* to check out all the new smells.

I used to wonder what he thought of the smells; whether he got any sort of sense of what size or sort of animal it was just from the smell.

When I was coming to after my first surgery long long ago, they kind of pat your face to be sure your brain functions are still in tact I guess, and I remember looking at my Doctor and asking if I would be able to play the piano, he actually laughed and said if I could before I would now.

Too smart for me, glad he had the knife.
