My ex-husband (then husband) had gastric bypass surgery in Indianapolis. When the nurses wheeled him into his room after the surgery, he received several visitors.
Outside his window, peeking in were several Turkey Vultures. At first I was freaked out by this. The nurses said that they greet every patient when first taken to their room after surgery. They can smell the blood.
Can you imagine? You undergo a major surgery and still out of it from anesthesia and see vultures staring in at you! It’s a bit unsettling!
