3" cut

I wasn't gonna do it, but yes I am.

Yesterday I painstakingly removed that sticky bandage. Boy howdy, you talk bout a chore. It was like remov'n duct tape from a winder glass after a category 5 hurricane. Pull'n out big ol' gobs of hair an' little pieces of skin. Just kidd'n....haa haa fooled ya didn't I? With the assistance of Sadie Mae's hair clippers, the bandage was removed with little to no pain.

Look'n at the size of the incision, what is 3 inch long, I'm wonder'n what the hell the doc took out of there. The little growth, bout the size a thumbnail, that cut shouldn't be no wheres that big. That what I'm think'n anyhows.

There was a couple times in my life that I wished I had a photo. One is when I was doused in the face an' neck with sulfuric acid. I was all wrap up like a mummy with two little slits to see out of the bandages and a little hole to breath through. Damn, why didn't somebody take my pic???

Another photo I would love to have today is when I arrived home from heart surgery. I was black an' blue from my neck to my knees. "Stuff" was swoled up. By the time I even thought bout pictures, the bruises an' swell'n had gone down. "Too late now Billy Bob".

Look'n like I got me a trip to make today. I'm out of meds. So's I make me up a Walmart list. I also got me a laundry basket full of nasty dirty clothes. I'm think'n both chores would be too much for one day. Maybe I'll do laundry tomorrow. That is unless I decide to go swak some golf balls tomorrow morn'n. Decisions decisions....and life goes on.

  4. Maybe the incision is so big because they were looking around under the skin to make sure they got everything.

  5. Sadie Mae's site looks real good although that IS a big cut. Sure glad it's over. From this view, doesn't look like she can scratch at the stitches - I'm guessing.

    Yeah, that heart repair or bypass surgery gives cuts to scare the bejesus out of those who view it. Grandbaby and two brothers had it...I ain't goina go through that - no way! Them darn doctors have chopped on me too, too much. I feel like half a chicken! Oldest daughter crushed her arm and wrist recently, then surgery to repair it couple days ago. Boy, life can smack you into Sunday real quick. Docs pain relief remedies ain't nothin' to talk about either. Doesn't it just kill you to see someone suffering? Especially little animals. Your Sadie is awfully cute.

    1. Hi ya Sissy. Nope, ain't no way she can scratch at the stitches. Sadie don't seem to mind how big the cut is, so I rekon it's ok.

      I was fortunate when the removed veins from my legs for the bypass pipes. They used some sort of laser contraption to remove 'em. No leg scars. Chest scar ain't too bad neither. Was super glued back together. No staples what like you say.....scare the bejesus out ya. Don't think I want to go through that stuff no more.
