Leg Update

For anyone who still cares... LOL:
I'm now down to a regular-size band-aid for the wound. I had been using those giant ones that are about the size of the palm of my hand, but now I can get away with the smaller ones (the kind that you'd put on your finger).
The red area is still pretty big (about the circumference of a bagel), and sometimes for no discernible reason it will start hurting a lot. When those "flare-ups" happen, I generally have to stop what I'm doing, because there's no way I can concentrate through it.
But at least the part that needs bandaging is getting smaller. It's maybe the size of a dime.
I'll be glad when the whole thing is gone for good.
When the hospital said it'd take a long time to heal, they weren't kidding!
It's been over two weeks now!!

As long as it IS healing, chica.

Healing is good!! Smaller bandages are good! The flare-ups are concerning. Did they mention that in the hospital?

I hate the itch.

Janna said...

Mr. Fab: Who the hell knows?

Danielle: Sometimes I wonder!

Lynda: The flare-ups are concerning me too, especially since they're getting worse.

Best check up on those "flare ups" if for nothing other than peace of mind.

Desert Songbird: The tea tree oil is helping, I think....
