My friend Gabe took these in the ER at Beth Israel Hospital on Thursday night. My not-so-little friend made his initial appearance on Monday night. On Tuesday he showed no sign of leaving on his own, in fact by Wednesday he was making his presence even more noticeable day by day. So on Thusday a kind but not-so-gentle doctor forcibly removed him (squeezing and scraping) and replaced him with gauze in what I think you can see for yourself was a rather unpleasant procedure. I have another unpleasant procedure later today where the packing that replaced Ralph (yes, I named him) is replaced with new non-blood and puss soaked gauze. Ouch. Hopefully there will no remenants of Ralph left thanks to the anti-alien prescription (antibiotic) that I was given. God knows, the pain pills I was given did not do much.
