You may see me around this forum a lot today, and wonder if I have a "life". Yes I do, but today, I have to hang around the house. I'm not allowed to drive, or do much of anything, except rest.
"Why" do you ask? Well, yesterday, I went to a doctor who is helping me with some pain in my leg, which is emanating from my spine. He gave me an epidural block (5 injections) under anaesthesia, (sodium pentothal).
Anyhow, I was out like a light during the procedure. During the stage that I was coming out of the anaesthesia, the nurse was wheeling me to the recovery room. I found myself singing, at the top of my lungs,
WHO'S THE LEADER OF THE CLUB THAT'S MADE FOR YOU AND ME?
First off, feel
Secondly, forever let us hold the banner high (High! High! High!)
Thirdly, did the nurse join in with
you, in two-part harmony?
Nope- But she did have a big grin on her
And I noted your new avatar AFTER I read your posts -- love it!
The mouse that roared
My goodness, Phoenix. I'll bet the staff sang right along with you.
I am trying this as a test and find that I can't sing out.
When my sister was in the delivery room and was having some trouble with the head of the baby presenting, she sang "Come Down Little Head".
I was certain that her first son would be able to sing like Caruso. Can't carry a tune in the old proverbial bucket.
Well, if you aren't belting out "Ah, Sweet Mystery of Life" a la "Young Frakenstein," I haven't any good advice.
heavens Phoenix - how the inner woman comes out at these times!
I once - in my cups - insisted, so I am told - on singing Amazing Grace - which I don't even KNOW when sober!
I hope you are feeling good soon -
Hope you're feelin' much better, Phoenix.
< Ain't that a cute rarebit with the fag ... sending up a smokescreen, Deb? >
Phoenix - hope you're feeling wonderful soon. How old was the nurse? Maybe she doesn't remember the song?
Beth - editing again....?
i had trouble getting the green on the 3rd dill pickle. <sigh> so much to learn
Debacle! Little K! Welcome to the new site.
Many thanks, GW -- proud to be here.
Really fancy your graphic. Pick that up at Craven's abattoir, did you?
LOL! I mentioned to Jesusgirl that she should share some of her hospital funnies with us. Having worked as a unit clerk in the ICU's during college, I have a feeling the staff had The Mickey Mouse theme going all day.
I'm sure you made their day.
The singing is no big deal. Lot's of patients sing in the recovery room...really! Now then, I thought you were going to tell us you'd had an out-of-body-experience.
Would you admit it if you had?
How's the leg doing, Phoenix?
(Concerned, solicitous minds want to know.)
Merry Andrew. Thanks for asking. I would say that I am 90% better. The bursitis does not hurt at all. I am starting to walk (did two miles yesterday), and my back was aching, but just a little. With ten minutes of rest, the pain was gone!
Feel well and take it easy good friend.
