The nurse said "Don't worry he's just saying what he's thinking"

I had a minor medical procedure last weekend. I needed to be put under anesthesia (everything turned out OK). In recovery, my wife was waiting for me along with a nurse. I don't remember any of this but my wife sure does. My wife tells me I seemed wide awake and lucid in the recovery room. The doctor came in to tell me what he did, what he found, and what it all means. I cut him off and asked if he voted for Ron Paul. He laughed but didn't answer me. I asked if he voted for Gingrich...I repeated "you didn't vote for the Grinch did you". He continued on with my prognosis ignoring any political talk. As he was leaving I told him to check out DailyPaul.com, he was half way down the hall and I kept calling out "Check the web site!" When he was out of view, I asked the nurse if the doctor was a Democrat.
That when the nurse reassured my wife that I'm OK I'm just saying what I'm thinking.
Even subconsciously I worry more about getting the Ron Paul message out than my own health.

PharmerEd....good to hear that you're OK....

....and that you gave the doctor some good advice. Its usually the other way around.

Funny stuff.

Hey, Doc, if you followed Pharmer Ed's advice and you're on the DailyPaul now, then Welcome to the revolution!

Ignore the media's lies and propaganda.

Knock outs

They give you a drug that prevents short term memory from being retained. That is so if you wake up screaming in terror and agony during the procedure, you will not remember it and sue them. I have that info directly from a working anesthesiologist. I asked him if it was the case, and he said, "Well, yeah," in the manner of "Like, duh." Translation: "We're not stupid."

When I went under the cutlery a couple of decades ago, the gas-passer told me that when I was waking up she would give me instructions like "Squeeze my hand," but I would not remember them later.

They also give you a drug to paralyze your limbs, so you do not thrash about while being carved up. When I came to, that drug had not worn off. I could not move or speak. Being that I was in for back surgery, the drug-induced paralysis was more than a little scary. I gave my anesthesiologist friend what-for over that. I said they should warn a fellow. He said, "Good point." But he also said the drug was supposed to wear off before I regained consciousness. I said, "Still."

Damn straight. It's more

Damn straight. It's more important then our personal health or desires. It's about all of us. Maybe your doctor will check him out more now :)

Glad to know

that this stuff is ingrained deep.. Lots of us are feeling it too. Thanks for sharing.

Sounds like...

..you had a medically-induced psychosis (just kidding). Nice if you'd thought Dr. Paul came to visit and thanked you personally for helping him get the presidency (which is very possible). I'm sure that you will be in a state of euphoria (and all of us, too, of course) if it did happen ;D

A couple of months ago, my husband had to have some out patient surgery. As the clerk was checking him in and trying to talk about insurance, I couldn't help it. I asked her if she was registered to vote, and went into our support for Ron Paul and why she should vote for him. LOL

When the plastic surgeon came out to talk to me after surgery, and he said his name, I asked if he was related to Murray Rothbard. He wasn't - but said he wished he was. LOL

My toddler woke up way early this morning and I sent her to watch Pippi Longstocking so I could snooze. She turned it up real loud so I could hear it, and the next thing I knew I was dreaming Ron Paul got the nomination and Pippi was his running mate.


Gave me a chuckle - great work!
