I was reading the Fox News website and found a story about a man who had surgery to remove what appeared to be a tumor. Instead, the docs found a surgical towel which was used during surgery performed on him 25 years ago. That part I can understand, knowing that sometimes this happens as the towels are so blood-soaked it might be hard to distinguish and if the towels weren't counted properly-- well, things happen. HOWEVER, what intrigued me in the story is this quote:
"The towel was greenish-blue although we are not sure about its original color."
Did they really care about the original color?!
