That's pretty awesome. XD My grandma was a nurse and knew how to suture herself, but it never got demonstrated (despite me asking if she could show me how it was done). Fortunately my boyfriend's sister is ALSO a nurse and she explained just how sutures are done. I was TERRIFIED of getting them as a kid, but at the same time found the technique rather fascinating.
