It was only a year ago today that Inspector Climate and I tried not to cry as we sat in the pre-op room. We tried to giggle over my enormous cloth underoos, but neither of us could muster any real laughter. We were surrounded by nurses and doctor's who treated this like an every day activity. But for us, it was one of the scariest.
Inspector Climate prefers to remember when he first got to see me as I was waking up. He says that I was so happy to see him and then my eyes rolled back into my head and I fell back asleep. True love that.
I don't remember that moment at all.
I remember trying so hard to stay awake. I remember when they tried to feed me a gluten cookies (Way to go reading my chart, nurses!).
It's hard to believe it was a year.
