Eighteen Stainless Steel Staples

The surgical entry wound for my hemi-arthroplasty

Eighteen surgical staples form a neat arc on my right shoulder.

I had this picture taken right after the bandage came off so that I could see what the repair looked like. The big bruise is *I think* from the surgeons thumb. Unlike carving the Sunday fowl, I needed to be alive and functioning when the surgeon finished his work.
