I think my mastectomy wound is healing...
The nurses and I have smiled and cheered a little before, thinking we'd sufficiently had it closed, only for it to burst open after a chemo session.
So this past week, after chemo, I held my breath, and paid it no attention.
Monday I went to the wound care clinic.
It was very anti-climatic.
The nurse simply said, to keep an eye on it, but I didn't need to come back. I just couldn't go cold turkey however. We put a wound pack on just to be safe. But I peeked at it today and its still scabby, no holes, no fluid leaking out.
And just like that, I've graduated from the wound care clinic.
Small victories. They get overlooked sometimes when larger hurdles are on the horizon.
