Modern Medicine, 2016


My daughter, my brother, my ex-wife and I all sit in the 2nd floor waiting room. My mother is under general anaesthesia while undergoing cardiac catheterization. Earlier we were all bedside while Lil the nurse got Mom an extra blanket, Kendra the intake lady reviewed Mom’s allergies and other need-to-knows, and Roger the anaesthesiologist peeked in through the curtain and said cheerfully “I got drugs!!”

Modern patient handling has become a friendlier, folksier thing, and I’m sure that factor has bettered surgical success. It also de-stresses worried family members.

Happy St. Paddy’s Day, everyone!
