Life Saving (Part 3)

Click here for Part 1.
Click here for Part 2.
After several months of psychological evaluation and physical therapy, Seth was allowed to walk around the grounds of the hospital. He often went to the parking garage wearing clothes his wife had given him. It was still all so strange -- to be someone else, and not only that, but to be someone so much different from who he had been, who he still considered himself to be.

Seth realized his steps were getting shaky. He looked down to orient himself. It was one of the side effects of the transplant. If he got too distracted, he could lose track of some pretty basic things. Walking was one of them. His feet just often didn’t hit the way he expected them too. Some of that blame he placed on the boots his wife had brought him -- though they were certainly better than the heels she was encouraging him to wear. His next steps were taken carefully as he looked down, back to his task at hand of walking around with this weird, foreign body.

Life Saving (Part 2)

Click here for Part 1.
In the following weeks Seth was confined to his hospital room. He could sit up, but standing was a whole different matter. The doctors told him his recovery was likely worse due to the fact that his brain had to be transplanted twice and due to any damages caused by his brain being rejected by the first body, though Seth was still expected to make a full recovery over time. All this meant hour after hour day after day of being stuck with this unfamiliar body and not much else to do but notice all the differences from his own. One day, he’d focus on the fact that he now had breasts. The next, it might be the long hair coming from his head. He’d imagine cutting it short the minute he left the hospital.

He asked the doctors about getting another transplant, about getting the type of body he was supposed to get, but they said it was out of the question. The risk was just too high for another rejection...and that was if his brain could even survive another transplant, which they thought unlikely. Seth sighed. He guess he was just going to have to get used to this...

Life Saving (Part 1)

With a chronic disease affecting his body, Seth agreed to the experimental procedure to have his brain transplanted into a new body. The donor was a perfect match, another guy just two years younger than Seth, just an inch taller, and with a similar build. He knew when the doctors put him under, he would wake up as someone else. However, he never expected to wake up inside the body of an young Asian woman! He demanded answers on how they could make such a mistake!

However, when a doctor arrived in the room with Seth’s wife, they explained there had been no mistake. Seth’s brain had been transplanted into the correct body, but that body began to immediately reject Seth’s brain. If the doctors didn’t act quickly, Seth would’ve died. They needed to locate a compatible donor fast, and they couldn’t be picky. The young Asian woman had arrived in the ER brain dead. They didn’t even know her name or if she had a family. They acted on impulse to save Seth’s life by putting his brain in her body.

Old Friends

“Adam? I can’t believe it! I haven’t seen you since the Great Shift first happened!” Luke exclaimed.

“Oh, my God! I know! We were both panicking our heads off when we found ourselves next to each other in women’s bodies.” Adam replied.

You have no idea how nice it was for the first person I encountered was stuck int he same sort of situation as me.”

“Those first few weeks, I thought I was going to die. I fought the idea of womanhood so hard until one day, I don’t know, it just sort of clicked. I embraced it, and now here I am doing yoga.”

“Wait, here? Now? No way! Me too! I need to take off the baby weight.”

“You had a baby? Talk about embracing your womanhood!”

“I know! I never expected it either! I probably fought it just as hard as you did. But, like you said, sometimes things click...”

However, while Tahani went to cultural centers like Los Angeles in search of Eleanor, Eleanor went to Arizona in search of Tahani. She was pretty sure Tahani would freak out when they saw each other; not because she’d be excited, but because Eleanor had stopped wearing Tahani’s high fashion dresses and gown, opting instead for some trashy sweats. Of course, as long as Eleanor was searching Arizona, she was still a long ways off.

It didn’t take long for Tahani to get sick of being Eleanor and her trashy Arizona life. Of course, despite having Eleanor’s lower class resources, Tahani still possessed her own knowledge of upper crust culture, allowing her to sneak into fancy gatherings easily. A few times Tahani found herself at one of her sister’s gatherings, feeling even more insignificant and belittled than before. However, with Eleanor’s body, she also felt a little bit of comfortable detachment that almost felt...nice. She was able to pt all these feelings aside for her true mission; what she hoped was to find Eleanor with her body at one of these events, and she figured Los Angeles was her best bet.

Tahani also found herself back on Earth, and she was quite surprised to find herself not at a fancy gala or a museum opening, but int the parking lot of some low brow grocery store. Even worse was that she seemed to be wearing -- ew -- sweatpants. As she stood up from the ground, she caught her reflection in the mirror of a car and was instantly horrified. She was in Eleanor’s body! She felt like she could have a heart attack and die all over again. Then again, she had to think of the positives. Someone like Eleanor likely couldn’t make much of an impact on the world. Surely, living a good life would be easy as someone who was so insignificant and worthless.
