30. Thanks!

The ER doctor kept asking me why I waited for days before seeking medical attention? Didn't I know that I could have died? I informed him that I'd much rather die in the discomfort of my own home -- that it was being convinced I would live that brought me there.

After a full day in the ER, they put me in the ICU, and had me sign a form saying I would not so much as attempt to get out of bed without two nurses assisting me. Thus, every two hours, I would pretend to sleepwalk to the nurses' station outside my door, and inquire if any local business delivered marijuana? Or insist that one of them surely had a bowl in their car, waiting for lunch time.

Recently, my best doctor read the two interviews I did with Dr. Bandy Lee, and said that it was apparent that my brain had healed. She also reminded me that I am old, and that aging is a process that requires patience. I'm not so sure about that, but I'm happy to play this hand as long as the game lasts.
