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.
