I wanna be sedated (and offline)


Earlier this week I had a medical procedure done that required me to be sedated (knocked-out). I've never experienced that before, and was a little nervous, primarily because I wasn't certain what I might say or do after the procedure was finished. I've heard horror stories about what people say/do during the recovery time, so I was on edge a bit...

Sedation is a weird thing. I remember lying on the stretcher, looking at a monitor and seeing my vitals. The anesthesiologist said, "Ok, we're ready to go - you should be feeling the sedatives very shortly. They may feel cold in your arm."

I thought, "Hmm, this is ok. I feel like I'm totally coherent." And then I started to see two or three sets of monitors and numbers. I remember trying to look at just one set, and I said something like, "I think I'm seeing double."

The next thing I remember is sitting on my couch at home, some 7 hours later.

Seven hours of complete amnesia. Talk about crazy. I don't remember talking to the doctor or nurses, nor do I remember getting dressed or leaving the hospital. Apparently I was hilarious, but I have no idea what I said. Totally wild.

Geekysteve.com Update

In other news, I'm going to be moving the site from my current hosting company (DreamHost) to a new hosting company in the very near future.

I have been having a boatload of issues with DreamHost behind the scenes... their service has been anything but dreamy over the past six months or so, and their support has been absolutely atrocious. So, I'm going to migrate the site to the new provider with the hope that things will improve.

I'm hoping to keep it as seamless as possible... but if the site goes offline for a bit, rest assured it'll be back online as soon as possible. I'll let you know when I'm about ready to do the move.
