monday january 25

today i looked at the clock at approximately 9:30 pm and fondly remembered where i'd been exactly a week earlier: being wheeled down to the operating room, wondering if i should still be wearing the underwear and socks i had on beneath my hospital gown. although procedure dictates taking them off before surgery, i was unsure whether it was really necessary for an operation on my arm. i kept them on as i went into surgery, but when i regained consciousness nearly three hours later, i realized i was missing my socks. this raised more questions than it answered.
