20 Questions

♦ Man, does it ever let up?

♦ Didn’t I just have surgery last month?

♦ Did I mention the outpatient urology surgery removed 3 ulcers from my bladder?

 ♦ Do you know I have a condition called nocturnal polyuria that causes me the need to use the bathroom almost a dozen times each night?

♦ Do you know what I just mentioned in the question directly above this one is happily controlled with nightly medication, so I’m thrilled to finally have restful REM sleep?

♦ Which one of you guessed correctly that the first thing I’m going to eat since being unable to consume anything since last night due to this morning’s surgery, is an 8″ Italian sub from Jet’s pizza?

♦ Have you surmised that the hospital gown I had to wear this morning was drafty like always?

♦ Have you noticed in the first video how grumpy & tired I look, which I attribute largely to the very early hour in which it was recorded?

♦ Do you know that apple & then grape juice were my first post-surgery beverages?

♦ Is it weird to hear that a guy similar to playing the role of a recovery nurse assisted me to the bathroom shortly after surgery, then helped me rise from the toilet after I yanked the emergency help string to the right of the toilet because I was – & still am at this very moment – groggy & unsteady from the effects of anesthesia?

♦ Who knew I have to return in 6 months for another urology appointment?
