Getting Better

I’ve been practicing my surgical sutures during the provided genius hour time slots and that is going well because almost every week I have practiced stitches on a banana or an orange. I’m getting better compared to the first time I ever did a suture before. I am still having a hard time getting the spacing right without there being too much tension on the sutures. Other times, if I put enough space in between from the incision and the suture then I would have a tough time bringing the edges of the incision together without tearing the banana peel. I am going to do some extra research to find out some tips on how to keep the incision together without too much pressure being on the skin and without damaging the stitch itself.
