Game of Operation

Operation Game

So I’m having my first ever surgery tomorrow morning. My biggest fear (besides dying) is hitting on my doctor while I’m under anesthesia.  I’ve always been a little uncertain about his sexual orientation and am terrified I’m going to ask.  The one time I had alcohol in college (an ill-advised combination of tequila and wine), I was bodice-rippingly amorous to everyone in the bar, in the bar bathroom, and on the staggery walk home.  I’m afraid I’m going to tear open my hospital gown for the entire medical staff.

In the meantime, I desperately need ideas for good tv shows to watch while I’m laid up for the next week – anything I can binge watch.  Please send your recco’s if you care anything at all for my survival.  (Also always looking for good book suggestions of the get-lost-in-it variety!)

  1. Good luck tomorrow! You’ll do fine…….

    My anesthesia experiences – and there are been many of them – have been sublime. You’ll be in lala land before there’s any chance of tearing off your hospital gown.

    Now waking up from it…..at some point you may want to tear off the hospital gown to hightail it out of the recovery room. Resist the temptation to do so……

    YMMV but I’d would be binge watching Eddie Izzard comedy specials or Ken Burns documentaries on Netflix.

    Thank you for The Wonderist. I hope your recovery goes fast and smoothly

    1. Thank you so much for your note, Patti! I must agree – I rather enjoyed lala land, having never been there before myself. I had one helluva good nap. When I did finally hightail it out of the recovery room, I stole a ton of graham crackers and apple juice from the nurse’s station (our little secret).

      Thank you again for your kind words and encouragement! xoxo
