This photo shows the binder with one or two signatures from staff at the hospital. My friend Geoff suggested that I get the geeky notebook signed by all the staff that helped me, akin to a getting your cast signed. I even got a signature from the room cleaner. She was Laotian and I think she told me about the communist government and oppression at home in the 80s and why she came here, but I wasn't quite sure because I didn't really understand her. Needless to say, I ended up with a signature from pretty much everyone, even the nice nurse that yanked the catheter out of my hoozit. "Is this gonna hurt", I asked. She replied, "take a deep breath". You know its not gonna be so good when they tell you take a deep breath. "Now exhale".
