I had a procedure done yesterday at an out-patient center. [View all]

After breaking my leg last year, I had two rods inserted in the bones and secured with screws. The screws have been a source of pain and agony since, and one recently got infected. So yesterday I went in to have them removed, as they are no longer needed.

As I was lying on the gurney, getting my last dose of anesthesia to put me under, the assisting nurse told me to "think a happy thought to wake up to from a dream." With that last little bit of conscious thought, I said, "President Joe Biden!" I heard the nurse say, "Yeah!" Another assistant said "Take good care of HIM!" The anesthesiologist said, "Sure thing!"

Then I zonked. I was in good hands, I guess.
