No, not of driving in a car. I've gotten past that.<br><br>
No, not of getting in and out of the bathtub on my own and by myself.<br>
I've gotten past that.<br><br>
No, not even about bending my knee, strenghtening all of the muscles and pushing the tightness out of the tendons.<br>
I've gotten past that.<br><br>
But I'm feeling like a newborn baby about arranging to get 3 sutures that have not dissolved and risen to the surface of my knee taken out. They are under the skin so I know it'll probably be a simple procedure... But the very thought of cutting over such a tender and vulnerable spot makes me literally shake (as I am doing now).<br><br><img alt="sad.gif" src="">

I got staples for some surgery too, and my response was similar to your daughter's. I just thought it was so-o-o freakin' cool, but I was about 19 so it <i>was</i> cool <img alt="smile.gif" src=""> They just popped those suckers out, and I couldn't feel it at all, no anesthetic, but they were surface staples after all.<br><br>
The imagery is disturbing, but you'll be fine!! I think the ice cream reward is a very good idea! Local anesthetic and don't watch, don't even think about it while it's going on. Ask for something to look at or read. Divert your mind!!<br><br>
You are strong and serene! Good luck <img alt="smile.gif" src="">
