As most of you know, I am having surgery tomorrow. Just a wee bit of orthoscopic slice and dice on my knee... nothing to worry about... I plan to shoot an expert score with my pistol and shotgun before the next seven days are up, but I digresss. I am having surgery tomorrow and when I scheduled the procedure, I was given a detailed set of instructions of things that I needed to do... or not do before the operation.
The instructions told me not to eat after midnight on the night before I report to the hospital (I have to be there at 0600), I am also to refrain from using cologne etc... before the surgery. I am allowed to brush my teeth in the morning, as long as I spit out all of the water (as if I'd swallow that stuff). I have all sorts of instructions, and as a matter of fact, because of my employment by the federal government, I have some seriously boss heaelth insurance.
One of the odd things about my particular plan is this: My surgery is only going to set me back a hundred dollars. Hooray! My prescriptions, for the Vicadin I have now, and the percoset I'll be getting tomorrow, only costs $10 dollars. Not too shabby, eh? Here is the kicker: I have to buy my own crutches.
I can't be released from the hospital without them, but I'll likely only need them for part of a day after the surgery.
Go figure... Am I the only person that finds this strange?
