Acrobats

For awhile after my brain surgery, I saw acrobats in my right-hand vision. They were tiny little men wearing leotards. I knew they were hallucinations.

My neurologist said they were probably because surgery or blood irritated my optic system.

My surgeon said it was probably because I was a nut.

Thank you

In the hospital before brain surgery, I had lots of visitors. I couldn’t talk much though. If I was awake I managed to say “Thank you.”

Later, my mother said that I am nicer in the hospital than out.
