Propofol is an intravenous general anesthetic used in the induction and maintenance of general anesthesia, for use in intensive care sedation and conscious sedation for surgical as well as diagnostic procedures. Propofol has been referred to as "milk of amnesia" (a play on words of milk of magnesia), because of the milk-like appearance of its intravenous preparation. -Wikipedia

You lay there in the hospital bed waiting for the nurse. You look at the heart monitor as it beeps.
Beep.....beep.....beep
You hear foot steps and look forward at the nurse as she approaches you.

"Hello, I'm here to put your I.V. in." She places tape, needles, gauze and a few other items on the table next to you. She opens an alcohol wipe and wipes down the top of your hand, then opens the bag with the needle in it.

"You're going to feel a pinch." She proceeds to pierce the top of your hand with the needle.
Normally you don't watch but you decide to watch. Your hand bleeds a little as the nurse puts the tape around the I.V.

"Looks like you're a bleeder," She says with a smile as she grabs gauze and wipes up the blood.

"There's one patient a head of you, then we'll take you back." She walks away.
You lay there looking at the I.V and wonder why you were ever afraid of needles in the first place; it didn't hurt one bit. You look back over at the heart monitor.
Beep....beep....beep....beep
The constant beeping gets annoying. Waiting is even more annoying. You put your head back and stare at the ceiling, white. You wonder why do hospitals always have to be white? Wouldn't a little color cheer up the place a bit? Or is white just cheap? Where's the clock at? How long has it been sine the last patient went back? They always hide the clock so you don't know how long you've been waiting there. You hear the double doors click, you look over. Two nurses wheeling out the person that was before you back into recovery. You watch as they go by your bed, still knocked out. The nurse comes over to your bed and unhooks you from the heart monitor, no more beeping.

"We'll be taking you back to the procedure room now."
You look a at the ceiling as she wheels the bed with you in it down a plain white hallway. The nurse pushes a square button on the wall to open the set of double doors. Down another corridor and through another door, the procedure room. You look around, monitors, tubes, machines and people. You get hooked up to an oxygen tank and another heart monitor, great.
Beep....beep....beep....beep.
The person you assume is the anesthesiologist hooks up a syringe with white fluid in it to your I.V.

Propofol
You've been waiting for it.
Beep..beep..beep..beep

"When you're comfortable I'll inject this, it will burn a little then you'll be put to sleep." He looks at the monitor to check that your vitals are good. "OK here we go." He pushes the plunger down on the syringe.Things get hazy and you start to laugh hysterically. The corners of your vision start to close in on you, still laughing, it turns black and you're out cold.

"Hey! Time to wake up."
Your eyes open slightly everything is fuzzy and weird, you begin laughing again.
The nurse smiles. "They gave you the good stuff huh?"
You manage to get a 'yeah' out while laughing.

"You'll be here for about a half an hour before we release you OK?"
You can't get out a coherent word through the laughing so you just nod instead. The nurse walks away and you doze off again.

"Time to get up again."
This time it's the doctor. The laughing starts again but dies down as the Propofol slowly wears off.

"Everything went well and looks great. Here's the discharge papers and what to do if any adverse side effects happen. Call tomorrow to make a follow up appointment, OK? Take care now." He leaves and the nurse comes back in.

"I'll remove your I.V. and you can go home." He pulls off the tape, pulls out the I.V. and tapes a cotton ball to your hand. "All good to go."
You try to stand up but your legs are wobbly, you fall back on the bed and start laughing.

"Looks like you're going to need some help."
You attempt to stand up again and the nurse hold you by your arm and starts to walk you out to your ride home.

"Now just relax when you get home, no strenuous activities or major decisions until tomorrow. Take it easy."
You get in the car for your ride home and all you can think about is Propofol.
