Next thing I know, I woke up in a typical hospital bed… in a typical hospital room…
Like a time traveler, I awoke in a whole new world… tubes and wires everywhere… vital sign monitors beeping away.
“Wow! I’m still alive!” I thought to myself… as I tried to imagine the physical trauma that had just been inflicted upon my innards.
Mercifully, I was immediately advised by the nurses that the surgery went exactly as planned. Huge relief. But I was also informed that at least five challenging days in the hospital remained.
