It's Knot Supposed to be Hard

Yesterday, we had our first Surgical Skills elective class in a squeaky clean lab at Mt. Zion. We had plastic boards with pegs on it (like in kindergarten) and big shoe strings. For over an hour, we learned how to tie surgical knots -- the basic two-handed surgeon's knot and the one-handed knot. It was a lot harder than we expected! In the end, I was really satisfied with the time spent in the lab and felt like it was extremely useful knowledge. :)
