I had a thorn stuck in me for over a month and it wouldn't come out no matter what I tried. It was a bump that hurt every time I accidentally bumped my hand on something. So I figured enough was enough. I went to get it taken out. The doctor asked me to lay down and I asked if I could sit and watch. He looked at me and asked if I would faint. He asked me several times. Each time I told him that I wanted to watch and if I had brought I video camera I would have taped it. So I got 3 pokes with a needle to numb my finger. Then he started with the very sharp knife. It was amazing to see my finger getting cut and not feel it. Blood doesn't bother me and it's a good thing too. He eventually found the piece of thorn that was further down my finger than he thought. He had to cut deeper and deeper till it popped out. We all cheered. hehehe Ok, has anyone passed out on this story yet?
So there you have my story for today. I got 3 stitches and each was done differently. He was also teaching his new nurse so he was showing her the different ways to do this. I did ask him if I could cut a bit and to do a stitch but he didn't let me. aahhh man! Now my finger is swollen. I can't bend it too much because the nylon thread pulls. That is not a fun feeling.
