OR days

It was my second year of nursing school  I had my OR rotation.  I can remember that I was selected as the first one in my group to scrub.  I was so nervous.  There were so many hysterectomies – fibroids bigger than grapefruits.  But the second week, there was an amputation.  The MD removed the leg below the knee and he turned to give it to the aide and it started to move  and she ran out of the room with the leg in her hands screaming and yelling.  She just could not figure out what was going on and was so spooked.  We laughed so much.
