Knit ER

Procedure Note: PARQ discussion was held. Risks and benefits were explained. The sock and knitter elected to proceed. The sock was placed in the right lateral decubitus position. The area was prepped and draped sterilely. The wound was anesthetized with 2 cc of lidocaine without epinephrine - well, actually I skipped this step. When full anesthesia was acheived the necrotic tissue was dissected from the wound.
The wound was then inspected under a bloodless field and no internal damage or foreign body was noted. The area appeared to be ready for grafting. Sutures were made using leftover sock yarn and stockinet stitch.
A new toe was knitted.
The sock tolerated the procedure well. The sock may resume activity as tolerated. Follow up with the Knit doctor as needed.

All procedures should turn out SEW well. Very entertaining to us in the observation gallery. The prognosis for a long life looks good.
