i mailed my Christmas presents and
took my last Diclectin (hallelujah) and
shaved my legs and
fasted for thirteen hours (never do that) and
nearly passed out while Ms. Nurse-in-Training tried to find a vein and finally,
hugged a pillow while a big, fat needle penetrated my spine and
went numb from the transpyloric plane down.
the anesthetist surveyed her work and
the nurses counted tools and
i counted nurses (seven, but one was a guy) and
the doctors discussed decking and
then you came along,
peed on a nurse and
wouldn't shut up.
the snow started falling
and never let up.
you never let up, either, do you know that?
(you peed on your dad yesterday -- ON PURPOSE)
...do they make epidurals for moms of three-year-olds?
taking a break over at emily's.
here's dad's take on the incident.
