    medicine wheel
  • Since 50 states werenit enough, yuppie New Agers stole this ritual so they could use it to fix flat tires on their mountain bikes and Jeeps.

  • A stone circle built by North American Indians, believed to have religious, astronomical, territorial, or calendrical significance

  • A large circular pattern made on the ground through the placement of stones. The patterns could include other rings, spokes and cairns. The Blackfoot indians used these kinds of structures as part of a death lodge to inter famous and powerful warriors.

  • Medicine wheels, or sacred hoops, were constructed by laying stones in a particular pattern on the ground. Most medicine wheels follow the basic pattern of having a center of stone(s), and surrounding that is an outer ring of stones with "spokes", or lines of rocks radiating from the center.

Right before getting wheeled in to the O.R.




Right before getting wheeled in to the O.R.





This is before they came and got me and wheeled me into the operating room. I was starting to hurt a bit, as the pain medication I had taken the night before was finally wearing off (oxycodone ~ thank God it's 12 hour) but overall was feeling ok. I was looking forward to having the source of the pain *GONE* and out of my life. I wasn't as nervous as I usually am before surgery at this point... I was mostly just thinking, "OK let's get this over with..."

One of the surgery assistants came and he wheeled me down the hall, to the elevator... Erik came behind us and held my hand in the elevator, and then we parted ways ~ he went to get coffee and wait in the waiting area, and I, into the OR area. The assistant wheeled me over to a wall, and said, "OK wait here, we'll come and get you in a minute," and walked off to go talk about the iPad with some other people who looked like other surgery assistants.

A few minutes later the anesthesiologist came and spoke with me about what would be going on, asked out my medical history, confirmed that I'm the patient they thought I was, and then he patted my hand and said the doctor would be out to speak with me in a minute.

So then there was a little more waiting, in which time I was still laying on the bed in the hallway, listening to the conversations in the hall around me and trying not to start feeling really incredibly nervous... and then my doctor came out and spoke with me. We went over some last minute things, concerns and such, and she told me what was going to happen during and after surgery, and I asked if I could use a restroom and she reassured me that I would have a catheter during surgery but that of course it was ok if I went before, too. A nurse came and showed me to a bathroom, and I went (I'm always super nervous before surgery and have to pee even when I don't really have to pee :p )... And then I got back on the bed and they wheeled me into the operating room. ~ I didn't really pay much attention to the room itself (or if I did I don't remember it, which is more likely). The only thing I remember is that there was an instrument that was covered in what looked like a long black tea cosy, and I was thinking, Is that the Laparoscope?? If so how is it possibly sterile?! ~ And there was white tile and white sheets, and a big circular thingy ... Zac you're probably laughing at this description right now, I have no idea what all this stuff was. It was like a circle with lights set into a big white boxy thingy (and the machine that goes *Ping!*). Oh and a window area that looked like where people go to wash up...?

Anyway... They had me move over to the operating table and they laid me down. I felt someone (a nurse?) place their hands on the sides of my head and stroke my forehead a little, reassuring... Then the anesthesiologist said, "OK things are going to get a little fuzzy around the edges, just go ahead and let yourself go to sleep," and I started counting backward in my head from 99 (habit left over from the other times I've been under). By 96 I was starting to wonder what the next number would be :: lol :: At about 94 my eyes kept closing and I could feel the surgery tech people or nurses, whoever it was doing it, strapping my legs and arms down to the table (common so that patients don't fall off I guess?) ~ and by 90 everything was suddenly very soft and black.

Next thing I knew I was waking up shaking and spazzing and hurting a *LOT*, and feeling really sick to my stomach, and then arguing with the nurse because she gave me the wrong medicine (she gave me fentanyl, which it even says in my chart I react badly to :: grr :: )... and then arguing with her again minutes later because she wouldn't let me get up and go to the bathroom. ~ Post-anesthesia recovery was the worst time I had honestly... after they finally agreed to let me go to the bathroom (this was after they threatened to call security on me ~ HA HA HA :p :p ~ they decided I was well enough to be discharged, and had someone come and wheel me back upstairs. I must have slept for that part, because I don't remember that at all...

Next thing I remember I was back in this room, the room I was in before surgery, and Erik came in and saw me and gave me hugs, and helped me get dressed. A nurse came with a wheelchair, and Erik went and got the car and... then I was able to go home! =]

Found: It is with great interest that I watch the current PBS series "We Shall Remain." It is told by Native American Indian Peoples and spans many cultures and shares many regional perspectives, but most importantly it is their own. You get to know these important peoples and learn valuable perspectives about such notable figures from Tecumseh to Geronimo. From time to time it brings to mind something I read long ago and heard Joseph Campbell refer to many times. This is the passage from "Black Elk Speaks" by John G. Neihardt:

"Then a Voice said: 'Behold this day, for it is yours to make. Now you shall stand upon the center of the earth to see, for there they are taking you.' . . . Then I was standing on the highest mountain of them all, and round about beneath me was the whole hoop of the world. And while I stood there I saw more than I can tell and I understood more than I saw; for I was seeing in a sacred manner the shapes of all things in the spirit, and the shape of all shapes as they must live together like one being. And I saw that the sacred hoop of my people was one of many hoops that made one circle, wide as daylight and as starlight, and in the center grew one mighty flowering tree to shelter all the children of one mother and one father. And I saw that it was holy."

This is as good a description or vision of the connectedness and interconnectedness of the things and beings of this world that we live in as you will ever find.

Four-wheel Drive: Webster's Timeline History, 1864 - 2007






Webster's bibliographic and event-based timelines are comprehensive in scope, covering virtually all topics, geographic locations and people. They do so from a linguistic point of view, and in the case of this book, the focus is on "Four-wheel Drive," including when used in literature (e.g. all authors that might have Four-wheel Drive in their name). As such, this book represents the largest compilation of timeline events associated with Four-wheel Drive when it is used in proper noun form. Webster's timelines cover bibliographic citations, patented inventions, as well as non-conventional and alternative meanings which capture ambiguities in usage. These furthermore cover all parts of speech (possessive, institutional usage, geographic usage) and contexts, including pop culture, the arts, social sciences (linguistics, history, geography, economics, sociology, political science), business, computer science, literature, law, medicine, psychology, mathematics, chemistry, physics, biology and other physical sciences. This "data dump" results in a comprehensive set of entries for a bibliographic and/or event-based timeline on the proper name Four-wheel Drive, since editorial decisions to include or exclude events is purely a linguistic process. The resulting entries are used under license or with permission, used under "fair use" conditions, used in agreement with the original authors, or are in the public domain.
