It was a shock though to wake up in recovery after the surgery. I've had general anesthetic before and recall the process of passing out, but the process yesterday was different and I wasn't told when I'd be dropping off into la la land. I would have preferred to have known what was going to happen next and how many more steps there were to go, just the same as the checkouts process at Amazon dot com.
I'll be using the downtime this week to work on a redesign of this site. suggestions are welcome. I also hope to pick up the pace on postings which have been kind of sparse over the last few weeks.
