SurgeXperiences 123 Call for Submissions

SurgeXperiences is a blog carnival about surgical blogs. It is open to all (surgeon, nurse, anesthesia, patient, etc) who have a surgical blog or article to submit. The 23rd edition will be be hosted by QuietusLeo, The Sand Man, on June 8th. He is an anesthesiologist in Israel.

In case you were wondering - "QuietusLeo" is latin for "sleeping lion" (I think). Obviously, I was born a leo. The connection seems to make sense.

The deadline for submissions will be June 6th. Please submit your posts here. Here is the catalog of past surgXperiences editions for your reading pleasure. If you wish to host a future edition, please contact Jeffrey who runs the show here.

Every now and then I make a surgical cap from fabric for friends. I took a "Diprovan" cap apart years ago and use it as the pattern.

I didn't un-sew the hem, so I add an inch to the band. The oval is sewn to the band with a 3/8 inch seam. I always finish the seam with zig-zag to prevent raveling. Then twill tape is sewn for the ties. Here's my dog Rusty modeling one I made this weekend.
