Walking on Oxycontin
Here I am cruising the halls of the new Swedish Orthopedic Institute in Seattle. I had just been doped up with some Oxycodone and maybe Oxycontin, too. Can't remember. This was about 36 hours after surgery and I'm surprised I didn't get in trouble for cruising on my own. Sandy was nearby to help break my fall if I stumbled onto my new $40K hip. Yikes. In short, it felt great to not have a catheter in or be on the IV and be able to "walk" around a little, I think this may have been the morning we left Swedish.
