As part of my effort to not just talk about me, me, me in this blog, I have to share an incredible story about my sister, Ginger’s, mother in law. She had to go in for a hip replacement today and she has been saying all along how terrified she is that she won’t wake up from the general anesthesia and she didn’t want the hip replaced if it required GA. When she met with the anesthesiologist in the operating room, she told him absolutely no general anesthesia and she just wanted an epidural. He and the surgeon were pretty shocked but agreed to do that and she was conscious during the entire surgery, heard everything, the doctors talking, and the saw as it cut out her hip joint. Everything went fine, she got what she wanted and is doing great and goes home tomorrow morning. She’s 79 years old. OMG, you guys think I am a badass what about HER?!!
