Since you asked...

...I thought I would create a little post about Scott's recovery. Here we have a photo of his back a day or two after the surgery:


Scott is laying on his side, head towards the right. In the centre of the photo you have the incision, which is about an inch long. At the far right you can see a long, red blotchy patch, which is where Nurse Ratched and I tore Scott's skin while removing the original bandage. (That's a story of its own.) You can see the bloody remains of later bandages in the bottom left corner.

Here is Scott's back today. As you can see, he has healed completely and all of the hair has grown back:


No no no no, that's not Scott, that's one of the photos that appears if you Google for "hairy back" images. I couldn't resist. As it happens, I don't have a recent photo of Scott's back, but take my word for it that's he's healing very well (and the hair really has grown back).

Surprisingly, I'm now traumatized.

It's not that surprising. Scott was pretty traumatized himself when he saw the posting.

Of course, speaking of gross anatomy...
