On Love and Ovaries (RP Log)
|01 Mar 2014|
- Station Infirmary [Deep Space 9]
- Being the sole medical facility on the station, the Infirmary was designed to accomodate a great many patients. Spacious and at least three compartments wides, the infirmary has a laboratory, examination and recovery room, and a surgery room. The lab is what most people see when they enter, and where the medical officer on duty is most likely to be perched, ready for any medical emergency.
Pryus-Talbot is reading Senka's latest report as she stands against a biobed.
Senka enters quietly, not wanting to disturb you.
Pryus-Talbot sees Senka enter and lowers her PADD, "Good morning Doctor." She says politely with a bow of her head.
Senka nods in reply. "Doctor," he says politely. "I do not wish to disturb your reading."
Pryus-Talbot smiles and shakes her head gently, "It's fine, you're not disturbing me at all."
Senka asks, "What were you reading?"
Senka seems mildly curious.
"Oh I was just keeping up to date with your reports," She holds the PADD in one hand gesturing slightly, "It seems you've been most busy."
Senka nods. "The admiral's treatment is proving a medical and scientific challenge."
Pryus-Talbot nods gently in return, "So I can see, is there any news on the upgrades to our equipment?" She asks curiously.
Senka says, "I have not heard. I will contact the captain in person if an unacceptable amount of time elapses."
Pryus-Talbot nods gently, "If you would like I can brooch the subject with the Captain or perhaps the Quartermaster?"
Senka says, "As the CMO, that responsibility is more mine, I believe. TO insure that we have the equipment we need. Your conscientiousness does you credit, however."
Pryus-Talbot smiles a little, "Thank you, have you had any luck with talking to the Commodore?"
Senka says, "Not as of yet. She is currently off station, though I will speak with her when she returns."
Pryus-Talbot nods gently, "There is no hurry, I'm sure I will find out one way or another." She raises her brows slightly at the thought, "Do you have a partner ... or mate?" She asks?
Senka raises an eyebrow at the question, and you sense only surprise. "I do not," he replies.
Pryus-Talbot nods gently, "Sorry to ask such a personal question, I'm only trying to decide what to do with myself. As a patient, I'd like to request a procedure."
Senka says, "I am not offended. I do not experience offense. Though I am naturally curious as to why you posed the question."
"I've not seen you with someone ... more intimately and I was curious, I know Vulcans are more private than my own people." Kailyn answers politely
Senka nods. "That is quite true. You would not witness public displays of affection as a rule in a pairing where one is a Vulcan," he murmurs.
Pryus-Talbot nods a little, "I thought as much, is there someone you have interest in? You don't have to elaborate, but if there is someone you love - Don't be afraid to tell them, before it is too late."
Because his mental shielding is not at its strongest, you may sense that your words trigger a series of responses beneath the levels of his logical mind. Predomenant among them are hope and loss, and these seem equally mixed. "I see," he murmurs. His tone and facial expression remain politely reserved.
Pryus-Talbot raises her brows at the realisation she was having a onesided conversation about love with a Vulcan, "I'm sorry that was inappropriate of me."
Senka says, "You did not cause offense."
"Perhaps, but it was still inappropriate." She replies with a hint of an embarrassed smile.
Senka Explains, "If it were wholly inappropriate of you, I would have asked you to desist. I realize, however, that as a counselor, such matters are things naturally considered by you."
Pryus-Talbot nods gently, "It was more from personal experience." She offers, "I've faced loss and I wouldn't want you to miss out on something of such joy."
Senka quirks a brow at you. "There is a flaw in your logic, however. One's intentions, platonic or otherwise, must be returned and acted upon by both parties. Otherwise, one's wishes are irrelevant. Is that not so?"
Pryus-Talbot nods, "That is correct, but if you do not voice them you will never know if it is reciprocated."
Senka nods. "That much," he murmurs, "is certainly true." Then he adds, "unless you are a telepath, in which case, voicing them may be somewhat unnecessary." A tinge of amusement in his mind.
Pryus-Talbot laughs a little running her hand over her hair, "Perhaps so, did I hear you speaking betazoid before?" She enquires, "I'm not overly favouring over telepathic communication, I'm most out of touch."
Senka nods. "I do speak your language. That is correct," he says in Betazoid. Switching to Standard, "As a xenolinguist, I am fluent in a number of different languages including that one."
"I am more of a scientific mind ..." Kailyn admits, "I wish I had a more cultural streak."
"Everyone has their own set of gifts, strengths, and weaknesses," Senka offers.
Pryus-Talbot nods gently and looks to the floor, "I think that brings use neatly to my requested procedure, I would like to become sterile." Her words lack feeling but seem to be something that has been well thought out.
Senka raises an eyebrow. "May I ask why?"
Pryus-Talbot nods, "Of course." She answers, "I have spent some time thinking about this request, I don't want to go through losing a child again. There are plenty of children already in this galaxy who lack parents, I would rather fulfil myself that way when the time presents itself."
Senka nods. "There are no regulations forbidding me from acceding to your request provided you are of sound mind when you make it, as you clearly are. However, I must warn you that it will not be a procedure easily reversed. And depending on the option you elect, it may not be reversable at all."
Pryus-Talbot nods gently, "I'm fully aware of the reprocussions and I accept those." She states, "I am not looking to have the process reversed and I have already created a video entry should I consider having the process done. I am looking for this to be permenant and I have already taken sufficient time to consider this."
Senka nods. "There are several procedures available to you. The most permanent would be to remove those organs governing ovulation."
Pryus-Talbot nods once more, "That is the proceedure I would elect for."
Senka nods. "In that case, we can begin immediately." He gestures you towards the surgical suite.
- Surgical Suite - Station Infirmary [Deep Space 9]
- A single surgical bed sits in the middle of this small room, heavy medical equipment sitting to the side for easy access use. A replicator is placed in the bulkhead for the replication of medical supplies and small equipment.
Pryus-Talbot sits on Biobed1.
Senka recalibrates the biobed's scanners for Betazoid norms. "I will offer you a general anaesthic, unless you wish to remain conscous during the procedure, in which case I will gove you a local."
Pryus-Talbot shakes her head gently, "General is fine."
Senka eases you back on the biobed and injects you with a general anaesthetic. he watches the monitors, waiting for it to take effect.
Pryus-Talbot lays back and her eyes close as she falls asleep.
Pryus-Talbot goes to sleep.
sliding your surgical gown aside, Senka uses his laser scalple to make a pair of incisions in your pelvic region. WIth a pair of surgical foreceps, he extracts the Betazoid analogues to ovaries, using an autosuture to seal the bleeding wounds that the extraction would have left. After assuring himself that you won't suffer any post-op infections or complications, he completes the operation with the dermal regenerator, sealing the incisions and leaving no scars. Finally, he has your ovaries transported away and injects you with a stimulant to bring you around.
Pryus-Talbot wakes up.
Pryus-Talbot comes around and remains still looking up at the ceiling, reassuring herself of the decision she had made about the procedure.
Senka looks down at you. "The procedure is complete," he says.
Pryus-Talbot nods gently, her eyes lower to settle on him. "Thank you Senka."
Senka nods. "You are welcome."
Senka adds, "I shall not make any formal report of the procedure except in my medical logs. There is no need." you would sense that he's bending a rule to offer you privacy.
Pryus-Talbot closes her eyes a moment and runs her hands over her face before pushing herself upright. Her legs dangle over the edge of the bed, "You don't need to protect me, file the necessary reports. It's nothing to hide." She answers as she pushes herself of the bed to find her uniform.
Senka nods. "As you wish."
"I appreciate the thought, I do but there is no need." She adds as before turning her back to him and removing the medical gown knowing there wasn't anything he hadn't already seen before. She pulls on her under layers first, the fastens her uniform over the top.
Senka turns respectfully away from you as you dress. "Is there anything else I may assist you with?"
Pryus-Talbot thinks a moment, "I will need a hormone treatment to help maintain the ones that will now be reduced, I am happy to perform the HRT myself as long as you agree to this."
Senka nods. "You are a licensed physician. I see no logical reason why you should not attend to the matter."
Pryus-Talbot nods gently as she turns back towards him to deal with the gown. "I'm fine with this."
Senka nods. "Excellent. If you require anything else in future, you may of course ask."
Pryus-Talbot smiles faintly, "Thank you Doctor, I appreciate it."
Senka nods. "I will be in the duty office."
