Thinking ahead to my second cataract surgery, I commented to exbf that I needed to get the names of the drops for my eyes, since I was allergic to both drops last time. I remarked that if anyone was going to be allergic to something that anyone would be me.
He laughed, telling me what the nurse said when I came back after my endoscopy last time. The nurses wheel patients back to their little room immediately after surgery so another patient can be rolled in and get final prep.
As soon as I was wheeled back in and the nurse spoke to me, he said I opened my eyes and said, "I want something to eat. I'm hungry." The nurse remarked that, "People don't wake up talking, just mumbling things no one can understand."
He laughed (last week) at the fact I did things differently, even when under anesthesia. What I want to know is why he did not tell me what happened then instead of two years later. ??? I always ask him what I said as I was coming out from under anesthesia!
Tuesday, later on this morning, I go for another endoscopy. I am not thrilled! The problem is my blood sugar drops until I am confused, woozy, cannot think, feel panicky. Fasting is not what I do best. THEN, they will not be able to find a vein due to no liquids. Last time, they finally gave me sugar in the iv. So, this time I arranged to get it before my blood sugar drops.
Late Monday night, I bought a few groceries with a some good deals. I will post those later. If you have a Sprouts Farmers Market, look for deals this week.
I always pack a "lunch" for exbf because I tell him he would rather pass out than go buy a coke or crackers. He is diabetic but thinks the rules don't apply to him...until it's too late. So far, I have diet Coke, cherries, bottle of water, 2 packages peanut butter crackers, apple, dried apricots. Since he must be there for at least four or five hours, I will put other things in tomorrow.
Tomorrow, I must ply Thelma with calcium--egg shells and calcium tablets. Monday, as I tried to pick up her egg from the nest, the bottom of the egg was already broken. I tried to pick it up three times, and each time it crushed more. Hopefully, one will not break inside her and kill her.
Do you know if you say strange things coming out from anesthesia? One person said his gentle, Christian grandmother was cursing like a sailor before she awoke from surgery, saying words she would never utter when awake? Are you one of those people who are allergic to many things?
