  1. Pick_That_Puppy says:

    Why did they keep putting the chunks in water? … Making soup?

  2. Wow that does look painful…looks like the other teeth are really misaligned..maybe a congenital thing..awesome video! Thank sockie, love yer Xmas card!

    1. The ” teeth” were actually dental sponges, helps soak up oral secretions.

    These marshiemellows will not be making thier way into my cocoa… Nice find, Socksie.

  4. Oh Lordy! My toes curled up in my shoes and I broke out in a cold sweat when I saw that crater! Fascinating video. I hope he was given some heavy duty pain meds but I don’t believe there’s enough Percocets at Walgreens to take the edge off of that. Cool video Sock Monkey. **shutter**

  5. What an unusual surgical approach for a tumour that didn’t appear all that large-very interesting though! Thanks for the post Sock Monkey & Merry Christmas to you too!

  6. Terrific find, Socks!! I just wish the music hadn’t blown out the doctor’s description. Ho Ho ChanuMas!

  7. That was MUY FEO.
    Lou-Pus feels traumatized.

  8. ouch ouch ouch i so know the poor thang feels so much better after that great find SOCK MONKEY smooches hugs and audie bear loves

  9. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! Sock Monkey :)

  10. Caldwell-Luc is just ugly surgery, but it does the job!!!
    Excellent find SockMonkey!!!

  11. Ew! Ew! Ew! Ew! The doc was doing it blind! No scope! Sure, the hoover in the left hand was pulling stuff forward, but EW.
    And this looks like one of those cranium surgeries where the incision is made under the top lip, but over the front teeth so it goes into the soft tissue and space around the pituitary gland and brain stem. EW

  12. Well I learned something new today which makes me happy. Good find.

    1. private video so having the original yt is moot
