October 17, 2005, Vanderbilt University Hospital - Danny Oliver removing 
the stitches.  Almost all the small fixtures in medicine are disposable these 
days, so they gave me the tweezers and scissors.  I needed a good set of 
tweezers, so this makes the whole ordeal worthwhile.

When Danny removed the stitches form the long incision on the lower
front of my leg, at one point he pulled a stitch loose, and a stream of clear
fluid shot out of the hole.  He just said "hmmmm," and didn't elaborate.
