Was not as good as number one. I got in faster, and got to joke around with the crew a bit in the beginning (one asked me about being an archivist, which led in a roundabout way to us singing I’m Just a Bill from Schoolhouse Rock)
When I came to in recovery, I was in more pain than I was last time. It’s not surprising, of course, because cutting open ones leg twice in a month, it’s gonna hurt more the second time around. They told me I was tachy (had tachycardia) which basically means my heart rate was wicked high, and they had a hard time lowering it. As such, I am staying overnight at the hospital again 😦 The cardiologist said it was probably from the pain, but that I have to stay and be observed.
I am in a good deal of pain right now, as the previous dose of meds wore off and I can’t take more until 4:33. I also have a mysterious hard spot in my right arm that hurts. I’m writing this post on my cellphone so I won’t fall asleep, because then I twitch myself awake.
Nadja, the nurse in recovery, was very sweet and talked with me a lot. “Call Me Maybe” came on the radio not long after I woke, and I told her that DCRG did a video for it, and she was delighted. I wrote down the url for the DCRG site for her, so hopefully she’ll come to a bout!
I am all addled still from the meds so I’mma gonna sign off. I’m fine, I love you all, send chocolate! 😉
