Chapter 27: The Recovery Room

“Jesus Christ, we didn’t think you’d wake up.”

My eyes are still closed, but she’s right: I’m awake. I’m not happy about it though, and I tell her as much. Using lots of four-letter words.

“Yeah, I figured you’d say that. You’re gonna be in rough shape for the next couple of days. Doc’s never seen a case as advanced as yours before.”

I adjust my legs slightly, and feel the unique discomfort of a catheter.

“How long was I out?” I ask Driver Margery.

“About a week.”

“So, what the hell was wrong with me?”

“We call it Novikov Syndrome.”
