What A Pain in the Ass – or – Have Sharpie, Will Travel

If I ever have to have surgery under general anesthesia, I will bring a Sharpie marker to the hospital with me.

I will write on every available body surface to make sure the surgeon knows which body part is to be his or her focus.

I will write helpful notes on my cheeks, both facial and ass, to make sure the surgeon does not make a mistake (Husband may have to help with the ass, which is a surface so large he could helpfully write detailed instructions and a nicely worded thank you note, just to save paper) and operate on the wrong body part.

Why?

I don’t want to end up like this poor woman, who went in for a leg operation and ended up with a new anus.

Enough said.

    My teenage son had two knee surgeries last year. Although he brought his own Sharpie, the nurse handed him one, too!
