My new term of the day: SurgiMend biologic mesh.

According to this link, it's used for breast reconstruction, but I found it in a surgical repair of massive abdominal injury from a gunshot wound to the abdomen. Kind of amazing stuff. It's pure collagen, and it is incorporated into the body as healing takes place.

I have to admit, I'm nearly as good at the recycling thing as I should be. I so admire those who are. I have become so disorganized and need to get that under control and do a better job and reusing. Wish I could help with ideas for your kitty litter bucket.

Many hugs..........
