Tomorrow morning at O Dark Hundred, I will be admitted to hospital for surgery. Talk about role reversal - the doctor becomes patient. Doctors, by the way, usually make lousy patients. But I’ll try to break that mold and follow orders. Because several cognitive effects of general anesthesia linger in the brain for days (even if after the patient “recovers”) I’ll not be “right” mentally. I’ll be lethargic, take naps, and will not be able to concentrate as well as I normally would. Meaning, the last thing I should attempt is to write a blog segment. So expect a week to pass before you see another post.
