Today we got to suture! First we got some instruction and practiced on our TruSkin (this jelly-like pad of fake skin/fat). Our first mission: single interrupted stitches. After than we headed to the anatomy lab to pay a visit to our old friends, the cadavers. We practiced some more (on real skin this time), but it was a little more difficult because their skin is obviously more tough & not very pliable. It was fun though- I’m definitely liking surgery lab so far!

We have 3 tests this week so from now on I will be busy reviewing diabetes/thyroid/pituitary/adrenal/etc. meds & everything else there is to know. At least I can look forward to Charlotte this weekend- restaurant week, Bobcats game, and seeing my main squeeze!
