Anxiety, stress, nerves
Thoughts scattered and my mind elsewhere
The wait


Enema, spasms, pains
Thoughts focused and my mind on the moment
Almost time


Naked, gown, slippers
The wait is over and I feel relief
The walk down


BP cuff, electrodes, venflon
Watching them work efficiently to put me under
The fluid


No tiredness, no fading, suddenly nothing
Minutes and hours of ignorance, no control, no knowledge
The time


Suddenly back, drowsy, oxygen
Questions and concerns but no pain
The recovery


Fidgeting, groaning, need to sleep
Moved back to the ward and my bed
The peace
