No longer in stitches

I was at the hospital, earlier today, to have the stitches/staples removed from my head. I was more afraid of this procedure than of the actual operation. I think that is due to being able to relate more to the smaller scale of intrusion that the removal of stitches entails.

The nurse was very gentle and the whole procedure took just a few minutes. The staples have been replaced by a couple of band-aids. They should be painful when the time comes for their removal. Due to the risk of causing skin irritation or infection, I am prohibited from washing my hair until Friday. Not a good situation for those around me.

Just an ordinary guy trying to live an ordinary life. I do ordinary things like run, cycle and ski. I swim if I have to. I enjoy all sorts of music and like to play some too. I enjoy good food - maybe too much - and a glass or two.
