Staples

Whoever it was that told me having staples removed didn't hurt lied. And not a sweet, innocent little white lie either.

Can we say mother fucking OW?!

The little contraption, that looked strangely similar to a regular old staple-remover, grabs the staple and then pulls it in opposing directions, so that it can easily then be pulled up and out. Unfortunately, there were a few things in the path of the pull - like my skin. The little staples ripped through a small portion of skin on their outward course - leaving me bleeding and on the verge of passing out. But I'm a wussy.

It honestly wasn't horrible, but it wasn't anything I'd ever like to have to go through again in this lifetime. I took a quick breather about halfway through - and then asked him to hurry through the last 10 or so.

It's amazing the difference it has made, though! It doesn't hurt nearly as bad to move around when my skin is not being pulled and torn by the staples.

The doctor said I'm doing well, but he's still concerned about the straightening. I'm not fully straight - and even though when I walk I can now put my heel down (an impossibility before), it's still not straight enough to permit normal walking. I can hobble around on one crutch again, but it's slow going and I need to work past that. He wants me in the rack Dynasplint during the day as well as the night at varying 3 hour intervals.

I ran out of Percocets and am now on Loratabs - my only fear being they won't be strong enough to enable me to stand being in the rack Dynasplint; they weren't two years ago when I first encountered the Dynasplint during recovery. If they don't work, I'll just have to call and ask for something a bit more strong.

My spirits are still high, though, and that's good. I keep thinking of all I'll be able to do and it keeps me going strong.

Thanks everyone for your continued thoughts. It means so much that each of you keep checking back here to gauge my progress and are still sending positive vibes my way; it really does help so!

    I think that everything composed was actually very reasonable.
    But, think on this, what if you were to create a awesome headline?

    I am not suggesting your information is not solid,
    but what if you added a title that makes people want more?
    I mean Digitopus » Blog Archive » Staples is kinda vanilla.
    You should peek at Yahoo's home page and watch how they create post headlines to grab people to open the
    links. You might add a related video or a pic
    or two to grab readers interested about everything've written. Just my opinion, it could make your website a little bit more interesting.
