UNDER THE KNIFE

very early morning, sinigurado na ng doctor na kailangan ko ng appendectomy. di na rin sila nagpa tumpik-tumpik pa. agad nilang inischedule ang operation ko ng 9:30 am. like clockwork, nagdatingan nang mga doctor at iba pang hospital staff para i-prep ako.

di naman ako natakot. una dahil pinainom nila ako ng valium kaya nakangisi na agad ako at sabog maaga pa lang. ikalawa, i was expecting all will go well dahil i was in the best hospital in the country and i had the best doctors. god help them if they fuck this up.

ang experience ko during the surgery ay parang isang taong nanood ng late night movie na inaantok. one moment nakadilat at nakikita’t naririnig lahat ng nasa paligid ko, the next moment fade to black.
