overheard at anesthesia

I totally forgot to include this in the post about going with Thomas to anesthesiology, although Russell Dickerson’s gremlin pictures reminded me of it.

We were sitting there going over what Thomas has to do tonight – all that happy NPO stuff, etc, and so forth – and I burst out laughing. He and the nurse said, “What?”

I said, “So, you’re saying we treat him like a gremlin? Don’t feed him after midnight, don’t get him wet -”

The nurse and Thomas lost it.
