Richard Armitage in the Surgical Suite

Sounds like another one of my dreams, doesn’t it? Well, I had rather a marathon of a surgery this morning… 2 hours under the hot surgery lamp wearing mask, cap, gown and gloves while bending over and stressed out because the dog’s so fat that all the surgical instruments become greasy and slippery to handle, and you can hardly find the anatomical structures in all that fat, much less the vessels you’re supposed to ligate… let me tell you, it really takes it out of you.

At about the 1 hour mark, my enthusiasm started to flag, and at the 1.5 hour mark, I started bitching and whining. My surgery tech took pity on me, and soon had her smart phone in hand. About every 5 minutes for the last half hour, she would hold up the phone and show me an encouraging image….

Whew.

I said, “Not remotely ‘Ew’… Keep ’em coming!”

I said, “That’s nice of you, but that’s definitely NOT RICHARD.”

I said, “You’re starting to suck at this. That’s actually very nice but it’s ALSO NOT RICHARD.”

She then ranted about the inaccuracy of the google image search.

      Which one? The one with the yellow Labrador? We did get a good laugh about it, then we started pondering what it would be like to find Richard with a yellow Labrador out in the live trap. =)

        yeah, the dog one 🙂 if you see any pics of Armitage w/babies, I think she did the first ones of those, too.

      She’s doing great. The diet needs to happen, but I suspect it won’t. Lol

    that’s some powerful motivation right there and i find the last one just perfect 😉
    thankfully you were just about done as she was running out of options… you would have ended up with the white socks one! 😉
    Did the doggy look anything like the one in the pic?

      I know… I was running the potential options through my mind (having spent many hours on the shirtless Richard Armitage searches myself), and couldn’t imagine what she’d have next, though I was thinking maybe it might be Lucas… she played me like a fiddle… I was sure it was going to be super sexy, then there was the goofiest manip imaginable! LOL

      The dog I was doing surgery on was more of a 50lb brown mutt (whose ideal body weight should have been 30lbs, tops, I might add!) The dog we had in the live trap the other day, though, looked about like the doggy in the picture! =)

        LOL yes she did play you 🙂 but to a good end, hope the dog gets well and looses some of the extra LBs for even longer life 😉 And now i just want to ask you what you would do if the guy in the pic would show up with his dog to get treated? ;-))

          In my dreams, he has been to the clinic once, and *I* treated him with some suspicion, lectured him about canine husbandry a bit, then hustled him out the door. Go figure. Lol
          In real life, I’d be so flustered I don’t know what would happen! I’d like to think I’d remain professional, but I might very well just wave weakly at him from the floor. =)

          Richard’s friend: “How did the vet appointment go?”
          Richard: “Dog’s fine. The vet was a bit off. Smiled fervently the entire time, and never once looked at the dog. Was a bit worried she’d accidentally poke herself not watching what she was doing that way….”
          LOL

    LOL – your tech is absolutely brilliant. (I can think of may scenarios where a new topless pic of RA would make me go the extra mile, including long hikes up-hill in the middle of summer…) Fabulous!!! Thanks for the laugh.

    Ahhhh, thanks for revealing the delicious sights of how you guys handle the “tough parts” of your job, and how ogling a certain handsome man obviously can strenghten your will to perservere exceedingly… Cool assistent!… and a good, hearty laugh, and NOT so minor palpitations for me… 😀

      We may need to make this a regular part of the surgical routine on all procedures lasting over 1 hour. Preventing the surgeon from unnecessary bitching and whining should become one of our priorities!! LOL
