"Today was just a new level. He comes out of the ICU, he doesn’t see me at first, and then the nurse points to me and says, 'there she is!'" she recalled.
People high on anesthesia are hilarious and their true emotions come out without any filters. A woman on Reddit shared the heartwarming moments she had with her boyfriend when he was under anesthesia and it's sure to make you smile. She wrote, "My boyfriend (M21) had a very long, very invasive surgery today. He was under strong anesthesia for nearly 4 hours. They finally call and say we can come to see him, but warned us he was EXTREMELY high from the anesthesia." They had been in a relationship for about 1.5 years and they have always confessed their love for each other. But this time, the man had a lot more to say. She wrote, "Today was just a new level. He comes out of the ICU, he doesn’t see me at first, and then the nurse points to me and says, 'there she is!' He looks at me, begins to cry, and reaches his hands out for me like a baby, telling me I was the most beautiful thing he's ever seen in the whole world, he is so happy to see me, he loves me, he can't believe I’m his girlfriend, staring at my face, kissing my hands."
Moreover, the nurses told her that he couldn't stop talking about her since he woke up from the surgery. She wrote, "He grabbed my hand the whole way back to his room, and while we are in the room, every single time a nurse came in, he asked them “isn’t she so pretty? This is my girlfriend!! She is so sweet.” The gesture left the woman also emotional. "I honestly could not keep myself from crying. He was in so much pain, yet he would still grab onto my hand and smile at me from his hospital bed. He would drift off to sleep still holding my hand, then wake up and freak out until I reassured him I was right next to him, and he would just smile so big and adorable and fall back asleep again," she explained. She doesn't know if her boyfriend will remember what happened tomorrow but that doesn't bother her. She wrote, "I don’t know how I could love this boy even more but I do. Just wanted to gush. Thanks, Reddit."
Many users could resonate with the situation and shared their own experiences. A user wrote, "I had a similar experience with my husband. He went through a very long, extreme back surgery and I was waiting for 8 hours in the hospital for the surgery to be over. They were wheeling him back to his room and I caught up to him and he just lit up and said, 'There she is! There is my wife! She's here! I'm so glad you are here! That's my WIFE!'He was so out of it and also VERY hungry because he wasn't able to eat since the day before. The nurses asked him if he wanted something to eat (figuring juice or apple sauce) and he said, "Steak. Please steak. And a baked potato with sour cream. And pie." In total seriousness. He was SOOO out of it he fell asleep and has no memory of it at all. We all had a laugh at his dinner request."
Another said, "My SO just kept asking everyone 'Wouldn't be cool if I had an elephant trunk for a nose?' Still a keeper." Another user said, "When I got my wisdom teeth out I woke up and told the surgeon he's beautiful."
