Surgical Blues

on Oct 19, 2003 at 20:04 UTC ( #300419=poem: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I'm about to have an operation in about two weeks. What more can I say?

(Compiles and runs but not under strict or warnings. So what)

open BODY; chop; chop; chop; split; push @body, 'hands in gloves'; pack 'a', 'prosthetic' and unpack 'a', 'bone'; splice @skeleton; join @blood_vessels; close or die;

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    Hi yosefm,
    Been "under the knife" myself so know the feeling, happy thoughts and best wishes to you from the UK. :)

    Hope it all goes well.

    A bit of advice: Take a book with you, a big one, because for the next 24 hours after the Op you'll be up all night staring at the ceiling doing nothin' otherwise... (depending on the anesthetic they use).

      Thanks for everybody's concern and advice. Makes me happy :)

      (Actually, been there before, and I already prepared a book by Dostoievski which would otherwise take me about a decade to read...)

        I wish you all the best. I wonder which title you are taking - I read C & P last year and it was amazing. I have the brothers Karamazov on my wishlist :)

        Nice poem by the way - I felt kinda giddy reading it :D

    Just a comment for the poem: all three @ signs can be left out (which gives more warnings of course).

    Good luck.
