Rush

Anyone who has had post-op experience with painkillers must sympathize with Rush. I had major abdominal surgery in 1992 to pry out a tumor, and I was put on Demorol, a form of morphine, for several days. For the first few I was too out of it to notice much of anything, but I well remember that the when I got my last couple of doses, I thought, “What a nice warm snuggly feeling–this is goood.” Happily the treatment was brief enough that no possibility of danger arose.

You’re a great man, Rush. We’re all pulling for you.
