You’re So Vein…

Today was my 2nd leg surgery. It was at 7:00am. Who schedules surgeries for 7:00am?!?! These people do.

As I’m getting taped to the table {once again, sounds weirder than it was!} the doctor CRANKS up Cool 108 oldies radio station, which he and the 2 nurses danced and sang to for the next hour of my surgery. I was trying to catch up on my beauty sleep while laying on the operation table, when suddenly the doc SHOUTS OUT, “JEN!!! IT’S YOUR SONG!!!!” My sleepy eyes crack open and my drool stops mid-drip as I hear…

“You’re so vain…you probably think this song is about you, you’re so vaaaain…you probably think this song is about you, don’t you, don’t you?!”

{Get it? You’re so “VEIN?” During my VEIN surgery? Oh boy…}

They all broke out in song and dance and I wondered for a moment if I was in some sick reality show or candid camera episode. The automatic blood pressure cuff on my arm began squeezing and they kept singing and then I saw them pulling a wire out of my leg as if they were pulling in an intertube from the back of a boat.

All I could think as I drifted back off to sleep was, “This is my life. THIS is my life.”

  • yes it is your life jenni…and only yours!

  • Ugh….surgeries and your related experiences sound, well, unique and slightly unpleasant! I hope that you heal up soon, can ditch the maxi pads, and make the most out of the excuse to wear spandex. Work it, girl.

  • hope you feel better soon.

    I think the song lyrics are
    'you probably think this song is about you
    'don't you. don't you, don't you.

    not
    'bout you- 'bout you- 'bout you,

    love ya!
