Help with Operation Notes, Im no doctor!

So I just got my papers from my last two csections...and I was reading over and wanted to know if anyone might know these terms:

"the uterus was closed in a run lock fashion starting at either angle and working to the midline. And additional figure of eight suture was placed in the mid portion to achieve complete hemostasis."

Is that considered a double suture closing, or just a single suture...

"Per patient request, the muscles were approximated in the midline per patient request in an interrupted fashion and the fascia was then closed."

Well I have no idea what that means..since i never requested anything?

I googled what I could, but didn't really find answers....
