    You can hallucinate when you are drugged. Is that the same as a dream? And if not, would a hallucination work with your story line?

    I think hallucinations happen when you are either delirious, suffering from lack of sleep, or under drugs. Dreams happen when you're asleep.

    Is it necessary for her to dream while she's having the surgery? Couldn't she have the dream while she's sleeping/recovering?

    I guess. I had an idea of making her (dream, I guess?) of memories from the past. (is that possible?)

    From what I found, you can only dream when asleep.

    What if you were given some kind of pain medicine to help you stay asleep for surgery? (this happened to my 1840s protagonist when she got shot in the side. Could the medicine make her dream?)

    Sounds like you might have the same thing going that I do. Technically it's "Alternative History," I think.

     

    I voted for Netherway, but I have to agree with Jeff that it sounds fantasy. "Norland" sounds more real-world.

    Claire said Norland was an estate in Sense and Sensibility. Can I still use it?

    Does your character have to be shot in the side? It would greatly increase his/her chances of survival if the injury was to an extremity...or if the bullet wound was just a graze, perhaps. Unless you mean for the character to die, of course...

    I wanted there to be a small chance the protagonist would survive. She does though.

    What is the time period? That will make a huge difference in what happens. If it is an early time, say 1800's, then the next question is, would the doctor have a nurse? A simple country doctor likely would not, and would teach someone how to change bandages since he could not be there all the time. While a lager city doctor might have nurses who could do that. Or another hotel guest could be a nurse. Lots of working parts there. Modern-day doctors would call an ambulance and insist they go to the hospital until they were no longer considered critical. 

    I keep forgetting to mention the time period! Sorry. 😳 It is 1840s New England. In a city at a fancy hotel. 


  7. My protagonist gets shot in the side at the back of a hotel. The doctor operates but would he leave a nurse with her to change bandages and give pain medicine or would he come daily to check on her? Also, would he leave her in a room at the hotel?
