Today I had surgery to relieve the severe pain/pressure that resulted from my recent double-lumpectomy (2 weeks ago). Because I was requiring daily aspirations of fluid, and still in extreme pain, my surgeon re-opened the incision, drained and irrigated both areas, and placed drains. Of note, I had an attractive, young (30-somthing) bright anesthesiologist for my lumpectomy. My surgeon promised that he'd be there for me again today.
I mentioned today's surgery on another group in which I participate, and included the comment about at least having my eye-candy anesthesiologist again to look at before I fell asleep. So someone there dared me: "I double dawg dare you to tell the eye candy that it will be a pleasure to sleep with him."
Who am I if not one to take a challenge? And I quote (with my husband as witness): "Dr. Day, I want you to know that it will be a pleasure to sleep with you again."
Once he stopped laughing, he asked me to repeat myself so that he could record me and show it to his wife. (He's an attractive 30-something, bright and friendly.) He also recorded my husband responding to my comment with a thumbs up.
Oh, and my surgery went well. Hopefully, it will resolve my pain issues.
