Respectful Insolence

Breathe, breathe in the air

No, it’s not Pink Floyd, but I needed surgery, I’d want these guys trying to wake me up after it was over:

They don’t have to sing about it while they’re doing it, though. After I’m safely awake and in the recovery room would be fine.

    They should call themselves the “Halotones”

    That’s amusing. You can tell that doctors clearly don’t have enough patients. :)

    They are not doctors, they are nurses.

    Just like the one sent in during my first birthing. I asked for an epidural… So he came in and noticed that I was not dilated enough. He sat down and explained in excruciating detail all the good and bad parts of an epidural. When he was done, I was examined again.

    I was too dilated for an epidural!


    I gave birth about three hours later (I had a wee bit of narcotics to dull the worst bits).

    I’ve never had an epidural even though I have asked for one… though for the last kid it was understandable, I was barely at the hospital before that kid made its appearance! Absolutely no drugs with that kid, there was no time.

    Not that it made a difference. She is as annoying a teenager as her older siblings.

    Forgot to mention, whenever you are in the hospital you will mostly see nurses.

    Nurses ROCK!

    Even if they are long winded CRNAs.
