Another Day . . .Another Trip to the Wound Care Doctor


My chariot awaits . . .


This was on Tuesday and the air was smoky from the many forest fires burning in western NC.


Still, an outing is an outing.


And I had excellent news -- counting from my first visit two weeks ago, the wound is 87% healed and much diminished in size. The doctor said that my progress was 'phenomenal' and that I obviously have a very strong constitution. (It must be all that clean living.)

I got a picture of the wound to share with one of the nurses back at the facility but it's so gross looking, I can hardly stand it. It looks a bit like the inside of a pomegranate. But I'll spare you all that and leave you with this selfie.

Oh my gosh! I've gone back to read all the posts about your accident -- you didn't *have* to one-up me, but sure seems you did. I'm relieved to read that you seem to be on track with your recovery. Continue healing well! I have yet to post an update on my own blog, but here in my 10th week post-accident, I'm also getting well. I hope you are mobile again soon! Blessings and (((BIGHUG)))
