I remember waking up in the hospital with a bald head. That was quite an experience. I had no idea what happened. I knew I must have had brain surgery because my head was bald but I had no idea why. There were all these people surrounding me asking me to do strange things like touch my nose then touch their finger, I had no clue what was happening. On the second or third day I was awake, my ICU nurse wanted me to sit in a chair. This is a standard thing, after a surgery you make the patient get used to being upright again by sitting them in a chair. I didn’t want to do this, it hurt so bad. I also didn’t want anyone telling me what to do. I’m a physical therapist, I thought I knew everything I had to do. Well, turns out I knew very, very little. Here’s a tip, if someone you love has something awful and traumatic happen to them, just be there and be a loved one, don’t put your 2 cents in – that will infuriate the patient. Anyway, we were taught some techniques on how to transfer a patient from the lying position to a seated position. I don’t know how to explain this. You can watch it here.
