RIP Jorge, you bitch.

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.

  1. It's amazing how quickly a year goes by. Yes NURSES! READ THE CHART - I've heard so many stories on non chart reading mistakes!

  2. When I look back to my fibroid surgeries it was 3 long years ago but sometimes it feels like yesterday. It's so weird how medical professionals can get so jaded. It's a trick of the trade I guess!

  3. Doesn't the word underoos just make you giggle? :-) I can't believe that about the nurses! Crazy.

  5. YAy for gluten free cookies- I hate having to deal with surgeries or hospitals - I hate sometimes how they say things that are so scary like it's no big deal. I get it, I guess, but it's still scary!

  6. Crazy how time flies like that. I hope he stops giving you trouble already. I read your previous post about the random pains in yoga. Stay positive. I'm always amazed by how much our brains can control things that seem completely out of control. Sending good vibes down under for ya!

  7. That's about the best description of "true love" that I've ever heard!
