Well. DIY has hit a new low for me. I had stitches and went to the doctor to have them removed. This is a pain because it takes about 40 minutes to drive there and another 40 to return home. Plus the time involved with waiting varies. The $25 copay was part of it, too. But I ended up with some lumpy-feeling places so I was pulling out stitches even after all the driving, waiting, paying.
So this time I decided I would remove the stitches myself. I used nail clippers to cut the knots off and tweezers to pull the bright blue stitches out. Good job. No blood, no lumpy places.
Now if I can just get Larry to remove the ones in back that I can't see.
