I loved that when Kate was under anesthesia, she saw her dad. I have dreams about my dad all the time (he died 30 years ago). It's comforting.

I have to say, though, I had surgery under anesthesia 18 months ago (gall bladder). I didn't dream anything. One minute they were putting me under, and the next I was in recovery getting ready to go to my hospital room. My hubby and my nurse were laughing at me, cause I couldn't stay awake long enough to listen to her instructions. I was also trying to text a friend that I was out of surgery. Took me like an hour to send a tiny text, cause I kept dozing off.

I've been "under" a number of times. No dreaming. When nurses were trying to wake me up after . . . "LET ME SLEEP!"

I've had surgery once. No dreaming. Otherwise, during regular sleep, I will sometimes dream of my parents, usually when they were younger, in their 50s. Even grandparents occasionally.

I have been under a few times in the last two years, don’t remember dreaming but I did send my DD a voice mail after my oral surgery that said.

That’s good I know in order for sometime it a pig we boy boy hi tech 13 through her to know do we.
What a sad Zachary I don’t have panties well thanks for not saying I have borrowed time for every baby Avenue F for having a food fight of faith is not funny I will hang out here and go and you have no.
I don’t remember it at all and have no clue to what I could possibly actually be saying.

My DD’s response. Okay mom . You should just go to sleep.

Hard and I missed the usual variety.

One key thing we learned is that Jack had heart problems quite young, so it means that when the house burned and he went in he was more susceptible than most.

That war is still hard to watch.

I began to wonder what changed in Jack’s dad to make him become so abusive. He seemed so different when they were at the hospital for Nick’s birth.

That's a good question, Texannie. You're right, he did seem to be a loving young father at the time of Nick's birth.

I'm sure the abuse came as a result of his drinking, but if he wasn't drinking when Nick was born, I wonder what might have changed that caused him to start drinking.

They said Nick was sick a lot, so maybe the story is there.

Also, it just crushed me when they showed all those babies born on October 18th... Memories of hoping my brother's birthdate would not be called.

We saw the grandfather, who seemed to be what the father became..

We saw Jack's mother had been beaten when the postman brought the letter for Nick, before Jack enlisted.

Just when I thought this show couldn't get more depressing. That was a tough episode to watch. My older sister was born in 1948. I was in the 8th grade in 1969. I don't remember anything about them showing the draft lottery on TV. Maybe my parents sheltered me from that. I do remember looking around my Social Studies classroom in 8th grade and wondering how many of my classmates would be in Viet Nam in 5 years. My older sisters had friends who died there. So very sad. What a waste of human life. For nothing.

My hubby says he was fully prepared to go to Canada if his number was called. Luckily he got deferred for HBP.

I also missed seeing the other characters this week. Hope they return to the regular format next week.

My brother was born in 48 and has a number that was low, 098. He also had a knee with a bad ligament, but the draft people wouldn't listen. He went into the national guard and in boot camp his knee would collapse if he had to jump out of a truck.

Finally it gave out on a stairway and some officer sent him to the infirmary.

So he wrecked his knee more, but got to go back to school.

What year was Nick born? FWIW which is nothing, the most important guy formerly in my life was born Oct. 19, 1949. 99% sure he never served. Became a father at a pretty young age.

Sorry to hear about your brother's knee, Sea, but I'm glad he got to go back to school. Did he get any disability from it? He should have gotten something for wrecking his knee in the military.

I don't think so.. the national guard wanted to do surgery, but he refused. He actually first injured it skiing but the draft board wouldn't listen to him. He finished his bachelor's and MBA at Berkeley. He had knee surgery in 1973. I think much later he had more surgery. His was the medial collateral ligament.

I trashed my anterior cruciate ligament in the 90s and finally had surgery in 2003, a week before my first TVCH meet.. I brought my crutches but they stayed in the car all weekend.
