Whew, Reader, that woe-is-me Me is behind us already, thank goodness, because who has time for all that?? No one, Reader, that’s who, at least not for more than a coupla days. There’s things to do. And even on my weakest days, I get a little bit stronger.
I read an ad in my email box and at first I was excited thinking it said “45 Days of Free Hula” and I thought, YES! I’m going to take Hula lessons! And then I realized it said Hulu and I was less excited, because I already know how to tv.
So anyway. Enough boo-boo talk. I mean, it’s looking good, with “good” being relative to how a big gaping wound can look. It’s about the size of a silver dollar, I’d say, but instead of looking so much liked an effed up vagina, it’s looking more like a stingray now.
I have my new vacuum accessory for about 4 weeks, which means I’ve had to cancel my end-of-the-month cruise and my birthday trip in mid-November is precarious.
This is what it looks like with the vacuum hooked up, in case you were wondering. The brown part is the sponge that fits into the wound, it does some magic thing that makes it heal 50% faster than it would on it’s own.
So the whole foot experience has not been enhanced by the blue toenail polish, and the residue of the betadine or whatever it is that left a brownish hue on my toes after surgery. Those two features right there make it look closer to zombie-foot.
Same polish, different view looks a lot better:
Hard to believe that was just last month.
I guess that’s enough boo-boo talk. I lied earlier, apparently, because I felt like you might need an update. And also, I’ve removed all the toenail polish and cleaned up the betadine and now it’s looking less antagonistic towards my mental health when I look down.
In other news…..well, I don’t have much in the way of other news at the moment. But I’m going to try, Reader, to create something new for us here to both enjoy. I can only talk so much about my ouchy boo-boo, right? Right.
Right now, I’m getting stronger. It’s feeling like it’s going to be a good day. I hope you can say the same, Reader. We love each other. Let’s do our best together.
