Now when one of those internal strings pushes OUT (which apparently can happen), it can wrap around the external stitches.
A normal person would have tried to untangle what they could THINK was gauze string with their fingernails, but I had just cut all mine short.
So I grabbed my tweezers and yanked.
The string of obscenities that left my mouth as I sunk to my knees to the ground WHILE almost passing out was unbecoming of a non-sailor.
I undid and pulled out about 1/2 inch (slightly less... maybe) of internal stitches from the inside to the outside of my body. My arm is in PAIN. Lots of PAIN. I must have hit a nerve or something while quickly and efficiently undoing the hard work my dermatologist did.
After sheepishly confessing my stupidity to the derm's office I was told no repetitive work, no lifting ANYTHING - even my arm above my head, no driving even. Needless to say my day has been loads of unfun nothingness. Can I catch a BREAK??
2009 is working on ending as memorable as possible. Just not memorable in the good way.
