The word has come down from on high. On Friday, October the 10th, I will begin the process of becoming “Robo Hippy”. Got the call yesterday that they are ready to alter my nuero pathways and begin the transformation. It’s actually kind of funny but if you go to google and search for “frankenhippy” this site is around number 9 on the list of hits. That made me chuckle when I saw it the other day.
Nervous? yeah I am, and more than just a little. I have never so much as broken a bone and the closest I have come to surgery thus far is teeth extractions. One time when I went in for an epidural injection of novacaine the doc decided to leave a catheter in and invited me back for a second dose the following day. This, I thought, would be great! Double dose me! and really? how much pain would there possibly be from such a tiny catheter. Yeah well, alot it turns out. I could not even sit back in a chair. So now I will have 2 electrodes hanging out of my back connected to a power pack/controller. This should be fun! I can’t even ask for pain killers; that would defeat the purposes of the “test” and make it all but impossible to tell if the unit was actually helping or not. Sigh…
