If You Don’t Have Anything Nice to Say, Don’t Say Anything At All…

In Tonight’s Comic Adventure: Miss Waxie comes clean about her recent, semi-mortifying surgical procedures. ‘Course despite the intimate look a whole bunch of medical staff got at every nook and cranny her digestive tract had to offer, the embarrassment didn’t so much come from what they put down her mouth, but what came out of it! File this one under serious doctor drama. Or comedy.
Oh well, you know what they say, patients under anesthesia say the darndest things…!
Straight out of Grey’s Anatomy, eh?
that show has been stealing from me for years!
See, it should’ve gone more like: “Hey! You’re not my boyfriend…but you should be!”. No apologies, no regrets.
Noted. But I do get a little dopey on all that medication (clearly) so maybe next time I go in for a procedure, I’ll just write it on my body.
At least you didn’t ask him to marry you!
And Welcome back! We’ve missed your comics!
Ask him to marry me! Now that would just be inappropriate 🙂
Thank you! I’m really intending to be back this time for good!
Oh Miss Waxie! I have missed you SO much!
So sorry that you’re going through all this, but I so appreciate that you can make all of us smile about it all!
I’m touched, seriously. I’m working out a schedule (with myself) for biweekly updates… so hopefully no more long absences!
You are funny & apparently you have a thing for anesthesiologists. Now that this information has broken free from your unconscious mind, I agree with Tiana: ask him out next time. 😀
(Will there be a next time??? I sorta hope not for your sake.)
If there isn’t a next time, then something much worse has probably happened! 🙂
I will see what I can do, ladies!
I love your comics but hope that soon you will not have to keep meeting that cute anesthesiologist in this manner! Miss Waxie needs a long break from doctor’s appointments and having to be a “patient” patient! I wake up from anesthesia WIDE AWAKE and coherent which freaks out the doctors even more! After my first surgery last spring I came to fast, and said, ‘I want to know what they found. Is it in my lymph nodes? How bad is it?” I think they wished they could knock me out again! Once I got my info out of them then I zoned out to rest again (maybe they drugged me?)
I tend to wake up early in the recovery room, before they’ve had a chance to clean me up. One time I was in so much pain, I started apologing to the nurse for waking up during surgery. It took her a while to convince me that I wasn’t in the operating room.
But, I don’t remember any cute anthestholgoist (spelling is atroush, oops, just plain bad). And I agree, if they remember you, you’re ahead of the game!
And, good luck with your next trip to the hospital if one is scheduled.
Thanks for sharing!
The first time I had a colonoscopy under anaestesia (propafol), my Dr. said they couldn’t shut me up! I told jokes and funny stories the whole time I was in the procedure room. He said they were relieved when I was wheeled out, to bother the nurse in recovery. The last time I had the procedure, the same Dr. said, “make hers a double, we want some peace and quiet!”
