I had rotator cuff surgery on November 4th, and have pre-written and scheduled posts for the next three weeks while I recover.
A quick note to let y’all know that I came through surgery just fine and I am in no pain at the moment; thank God for painkillers!
Posted on Facebook last night:
I am about to go to sleep in a drug induced haze, but I just want y’all to know that they did a nerve block on my arm before surgery and it is, bar none, the creepiest thing that I have ever experienced in my entire life.
My hand is just DANGLING there. I do not trust my creepy dead arm at all, and would not be surprised if it animated itself at some point during the night and committed terrible crimes. (Which would be an excellent plot for Fred’s next novel, but I suspect it’s already been done.)
Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers, I appreciate them. Good night!
PS: what I did not post on Facebook last night is that after they did the nerve block, but before they did surgery, SOMEONE was unspeakably mean to me. My arm had slipped so that it was touching the side of the bed, which was cold, so I asked him to move it back into position (my arm was numb, but I could still feel the ends of my fingers). He did, but only after he freaked me out, by using my own hand to touch my face. Several times. It was so so so so so so CREEPY. I can stand pain, but creepiness I cannot. I’m surprised that the nurses didn’t come running to save me, given how loudly I was protesting.
Look what I found, stuck away in a folder (I swear, I am so disorganized sometimes)!
