Day 4 - Surgery Day, my anethesiologist is a baller

February 12th, 2008 · 25 Comments

My girlfriend drove me to the hospital. Surgery day! Waited for hours and finally was called back into the pre-op area. I changed into a gown and spoke with the anesthesiologist, in his mid 40’s.

He asked me how I hurt myself, and I told him. His face brightend up and asked me to play the guessing game:

Guess how many college 3’s I made in a row?” I said 7, and he said 19. I was impressed.

Guess how many NBA 3’s I made in a row?” I said 10, and it’s 11

Guess how many freethrows I made in a row?” I said 30, and it’s 62

I initially considered making ridiculously high guesses, but I thought better of it considering he seemed like a nice guy and he was going to be putting me to sleep.

My favorite player? Didn’t really want to think and didn’t care.. I said Kobe or Lebron. His favorite, Nash.

Well, he put me under real good, and the last thing I remember before the surgery is being rolled into the operating room.

After the surgery, I regained consciousness surprisingly refreshed.. then I got dizzy and nauseous. It was miserable, but my girlfriend came by to pick me up from work and took good care of me.

I now have a new cast, and my leg hurts a lot more than before. Luckily I am drugged up so it’s not so bad. So a follow-up visit in 10-14 days, and probably another one a couple of weeks after that.

She took me home, and I slept and slept. I got up at 9pm and I felt better. My food intake of the day consisted of cranberry juice, cookies, hot chocolate and a bananna. I hope I lose some weight through all of this.

Let’s see how it is tomorrow.

    Just like the other 2 tracks of this program, these are some audio sessions that remove the blocks associated with one’s chakras. It is meant to be used along with the main tracks of this program for achieving maximum results.
