I'm recovering from surgey. Nothing major, but it's still an ordeal to get to hospital and go under the knife. Falling asleep was actually rather pleasant, even though I don't like being under the influence of drugs.
Waking up from the anaesthetic was the worst part. I got jittery and had a really hard time staying still in the bed. I couldn't calm down enough to read so I started talking to the other patients instead. Much better than staring into the wall.
I'm still not sure if it was a reaction to the drugs I was given or just nerves.
One of my fellow patients said it just felt like he'd had a great night out and woke up hungover.
My reply: In that case I must have partied like a young Keith Richards last night.
Here's BoySetsFire with "My Life In the Knife Trade". Has nothing to do with hospitals, but it's a great song.
