Re: I'm mostly back
One thing that I wish I was conscious for was that an Orthodox priest and few of his followers showed up and did some chanting for the Christians in the ward. Apparently Syrian Christian chants are a more rhythmic variant on the Western styles of old and done modes just like we do it.
One thing i've learned is that id that if the pain intense enough you stop hurting for brief moment before you bass out and you just kind of get hit with sensory overload. The sensation is basically what I can only call electric. I also know that hospital food is uniformly banal that you know you have a good surgeon when he invites you into his office to smoke jurak.
