Just found your blog today and have now finished reading all your archives and got it bookmarked. This is very interesting! I had emergency surgery last year, broken hip, first hospitalization as an adult, never even met the anesthesiologist (not that I remember anyway --- out for the count on morphine). But I do remember waking up at one point feeling really tired and because I heard someone in the room I whined "When am I going to have my surgery?", and a sweet voice said "All done, hon", and I was back asleep. Very cool! I missed the whole thing (everyone calls the bone pinning major surgery) and only felt a little tired! Never did meet the anesthesiologist but everyone else, especially the surgeon, were absolutely wonderful. Now hoping that was my last hospitalization EVER! LOL
