What I Learned from the Removal of My Evil Gallbladder
Receiving a fat lip from being intubated is a little disconcerting.
Chicken broth for breakfast is never enticing.
Morphine bad, percocet good.
Puking after having been gutted like a carp is a bad thing.
Suppositories that keep you from puking are really quite nice.
The little kidney shaped dish they give you in the hospital for those "upset stomach" moments is not up to the challenge.
Hospital beds suck.
The ability to raise and lower the head of a hospital bed does not suck.
Never repeatedly bump the bed of someone who has just come out of surgery. She may get cranky.
Also refrain from talking about food around someone who has just come out of surgery. She may throw something at you.
Being on the rag while undergoing semi-major surgery also sucks.
Lots of drugs do not make for coherent phone conversations. Or coherent in person conversations.
A bunch of freshly cut wisteria makes your room smell like a little old lady.
Having family and friends who love you is essential to a speedy recovery.
