The strings keep pulling tighter and tighter on the Dermaclose device.  I am becoming more and more convinced that this thing really could be used effectively in torture situations. (Google it and look at the case studies if you aren't convinced.  It may work wonders on wounds but it sure looks freaky!!)

I scared myself a little tonight because I was running a slight fever and was feeling really achy.  Between that and the pain, I was feeling like I was back where I was about two months ago--feeling lousy.  So . . . I ate a TON of food and that kind of boosted me back up.  I also took a percocet (I hate taking those things) which took the edge off the pain. Hopefully the fever is because my body is working hard to balance itself out after the surgery.  I don't even want to THINK about the possibility of it being from infection.

My Mom and Dad are back from visiting my brother and his family in California so they will take me to surgery tomorrow morning.  My surgery will be at 11:30am and should be a quick one if everything goes as planned.  Will keep you posted . . .
