Anesthesia Dreams

From the current issue of Anesthesiology, a poem titled "V.I.P. Patient" by Todd Lasher, MD.
Membership required. If you don't have one, you can go to a medical library to look up a copy. If you can't find one, here are the last four stanzas that you can't read for free on the website:

Recheck my syringes
Recheck my I.V.

Patient still moving
People screaming at me

Awake and still thrashing
Whatever I do

Bolt upright as always
I'm awake too

I've had dreams like this too.
