Now I know what you meant-it is interesting in many ways. Although you have not been using a mirror to the display yourself, you achieve a similar effect by putting the viewer into your very personal view.
Ironically I made this auto portrait right before leaving to hospital: [link] a few weeks ago. The shot is called GOOD MORNING.
Once I arrived there, I had the same view, you are displaying here.
This is a moment, when you really feel pilot operated - I have no idea what is in that pipe, but judging from the brownish toning, the liquid flowing right into your vein is not blood.
Frankly this view is that the last thing I remember before losing consciousness, while the anesthetist injected the drugs, that put me into a deep long sleep. It was the 1st time in my life I made this experiance.

Josh, you are an ego-shooter.

I "enjoy" this shot because of my own quite fresh memories.

I am happy to hear you´re fine.
What do you think?

Yes, its a bit dramatic.  But lots of people have procedures like this and I wanted to show a bit about how it feels to be hooked up with stuff being forced into you.  Its not so bad and its not so good.  But if it makes you better, then the discomfort of modern medicine can sometimes be excused.

Wonderful shot. Poster child pic for remain calm, it's just an IV.

Personally, I'm thinking it is blood or a mix, back flow into the drip due to the difference in viscosity or maybe a biological.
