My surgery today was a huge success, it went better than I could have ever imagined and I am thrilled. It only lasted about 15 minutes instead of the estimated hour and a half and afterwords I felt no pain at all! this is how it went down. I was rudely awoken at the ungodly hour of 6:30 AM and I arrived at the hospital at 9 AM to check in and get everything settled. Around 11:30a.m. I was brought up from the preop station to the OR waiting area where I was transferred from my wheelchair to a bed, given an IV for the anesthesia which let me tell you wasn't easy, you see I am a very hard stick and it always takes several attempts before getting a good line. That was the worst part of the whole surgery was getting that darn I V. I swear it took longer to get an IV in than the whole surgery itself! Around 12:30pm or so I was wheeled into the OR where they gave me an awesome drug that made me feel like I was in seventh heaven floating on air it was really good stuff! During the surgery I was completely unaware of what was happening to me although my eyes were open and I was semi-aware of where I was but I was so out of it that can barely remember what happened. The surgery was over in what seemed like a heartbeat and no problems occurred. What a big success I was worried for nothing!
