A few more "firsts" to add to my ever-expanding list:
1. First time dialling "911". Or any national emergency number for that matter. But 911 is the coolest, right?
2. First time in an ambulance (no sirens! Dammit).
3. First time in an ER. I was the only female patient on the ward, strangely.
4. First time on morphine (I do NOT recommend it. Two nights later: horrific nightmares/visions when I closed my eyes.)
5. First CAT scan.
6. First appendectomy.
Alright God, I promise to stop having such a damn good time if you could just see your way clear to letting me have some good health now. I think I've earnt it.
