Vic vs Cancer: not for the feint hearted

Vic's simple overnight hospital stay took a slight detour.

Post surgical complications:

acute respiratory problems
Pain (mis)management issues
Acute nausea
Hallucinations (well, complication for him !)


He's burning
He's freezing
He's nauseous
He's in pain


He's disoriented
He's anxious
He's way out of his comfort zone
He's scared


Finally, time for a magic shot
Another chance at relief
Just like Shirley MacLaine in "Terms of Endearment"

"He's been waiting for his pain shot.
Give him his pain shot.

Now's the time to drift away
Down the rabbit hole, Vic, it's ok

"Check out those tomatoes
... my rifle needs to be cleaned ...
... does the baby need to be changed again

He's gone, man. Solid gone!

Finally released to sleep -
nature's wonderous healer.

Man plans
G-d laughs
