No. I cannot. I Will not.


I was goofing around on the internet and I saw a picture of a toe being operated on. With the skin peeled up.

I cannot imagine my ankle like that. But it was like that. I also cannot imagine them taking a drill and drilling into my bones, it just can't be imagined. I'd probably die or something in the process.

I still think it's wicked awesome that I have screws in my ankle. =D

Am I the only person on this planet that finds it odd to have staples in my leg??? People just look at me like it's normal. No. Stitches are normal, I could handle that. But I've used a stapler, can I imagine the nurses stapling my skin together? No. Nor do I want to. It'll be bad enough having them take the staples out on Friday.

But seriously, does anyone else find it creepy to have staples in my leg? :glare:

I was operated on the 18th and Chato (Kristy's puppy) was spayed in the same week. She's pretty tiny even though she's 6 months old, she probably weighs about 10 pounds. Anyway, when I was up in SE-quim I looked at Chato's belly. I was reminded of dissecting a frog, that's what her incision reminded me of. It would be like dissecting a frog, to operate on a small dog. No, Chato is not ugly (otherwise known as a Pomeranian). She's a pug/terrier/Cocker spaniel, very cute. :edit: the above picture is Chato cowering from Boomer, the huge beast you seen on rolling on the ground. At first Chato would run away and cower in a hold when Boomer would bark, now she'll try and play with him. One time she even laid down next to him, quite cute.



Anyway, I think my whole point is, it's a good thing I was put out for the operation.

Once your cast is removed, you should try and put magnets on your leg...

That would make for good talent show material.

Elyse said...

I know it.

I went for the knock out when I had surgery. And I don't find anything strange about your leg. I haven't even seen it.

Elyse said...

Well your sister, Mom and brother have.

Well, more like my cast anyway.

I think I am the only person on the planet who finds it odd that I have staples in my leg.

Heidi said...

HAH! I made it here!

I find it odd to have staples in your leg. THat is, I would rather not have staples in my own leg....

Curly said...

I think Lord put you through this to draw you even closer to Him, Elyse. Like a string around your finger, your staples can be a reminder of His nearness to you. :)

Elyse said...

Thank you Heidi!

HEY, Curley... =D I've never thought about my staples like that, but now that I do it is very true. A couple of my staples are inching their way out, so they pull on my skin when they get pulled by the fabric.

God is always there, He reminds me that He's there. Just like the staples. Except God doesn't come out like staples do. Okay, okay so now I'm not sooo weirded out by my staples.

Thanks Curley. :)

i'm sad i don't have a picture by my comments :( I like your's elyse,it's neat-o!

I think its wierd to have staples in your leg.It makes me think of that relient k song Staples.

"All you could hear,was kachunk kachunk kachunk,all you could hear was the docter putting staples in this punk"

Elyse said...

That song must have been in their first album or the new E.P. Because I haven't heard it.

Why don't you just get one off the web? It's really easy.

If you find staples creepy, then you should not read the book "Comeback". They have an incident in there that involves eight staples and a fish. I think the plate in you foot is the coolest part.
Pah! Quit being opinionated! Polmeraneans are absolutely adorable.

Elyse said...

Todd: You are weird. Boomer is adorable, kEZI is cute.

Kaits said...

My little brother Matt had staples in the back of his head when he was little. Not so creepy.

Todd said...

Yes, but you are weirder. My dog is cuter than yours.

Elyse said...

Kezi is not cuter than Boomer. You've never even seen him, so how could you know?

Since I've seen both dogs I am the one who can say which one is cuter.

A Lobster Brian said...

You should've had them attach adamantium to your bones! =D

Elyse said...

XD

But that would have been much more painful... ;)
