Author Information

ANEURYSM leaking
Already on the operating table
Actually pain free now (after a little morphine)
As careful a history as can be obtained
Amid the noise of the OR calamity
A comforting blanket applied
An eye-to-eye promise to take outstanding care, &
A hopeful “thank you” just before the induction of general anesthesia.
Consciousness taken—
By me
Never to return
Promise Broken?
