Alive Alive-O

Came of the operating theatre mostly intact. A chuck of my medial meniscus has gone to some incinerator out the back...

No golf for a while. No stairs (the doctor ordered me to take the lift - excellent!) And shit, no business class upgrade yet for the trip to Melbounre next week. This last sad fact is unrelated to the operation.


Potentially Funny Story: After I was admitted, the anaesthetist read the chart wrongly. She came in to greet me, expecting so see 124cm tall 177kg beach-ball-shaped person. She was pleasantly surprised to find the numbers were the other way around, and that I was merely beer-belly obese and not pathologically deformed.

I will laugh about this only when I stop worrying about all the other things she might have misread as well.


OK, still a bit groggy. Need to lie down. And damn, there was no pre-med!

But still alive.

Thanks for your thoughts, those of you capable of higher brain functions.

Jen: arriving Tuesday. Will call.

Mia: slept for 10hrs.

xVPS - shall do, ta.

Mark - you need computer traing so urgently... but thanks...

Indy - And the nurses were not HOT. Even the "Relief:sexual Sub-class: oral " clause of my Medical Insurance would refuse to pay.

Sav - it would all make sense, in some unfolding of the plot convolutions. doors of perception way! Did you see that media-whore Pynchon was on the Simpsons? AGAIN!
