Modern anesthesiology is nothing like the old days. We're probably about the same age and I've had inguinal hernia surgery and intestinal blockage surgery in the last couple of years. Plus a dental implant. All were a piece of cake. My first hernia surgery, in '91, it was hell coming out of anesthesia. This time, I saw the O2 mask and the next instant saw the nurse. She gave me a short ginger ale and I was out the door.

Because of my age I did have to have a cardiologist sign off on it, though. No biggie.
