This kind of "wound care" is unorthodox.
You certainly don't need a prescription, or even a doctor.
You just have to show up.
Sometimes the best "medicine" for a weary wound, is simply distraction with a healthy dose of sunshine, light, and nature.
Oh and Zorbaz pizza-helps-a lot.
And a friend with a fast boat and a love for fishing.
The lakes were calling.
Despite the wound- I feel good.
Swimming might be off the table- but boating, sunset watching, and photographing everything- totally hit the spot.
My Jesus Calling devotion for today: Stay calmly conscious of Me today, no matter what. Remember that I go with you into the day... Collaborating with Me brings blessings that far outweigh all your troubles.
Not only did I see the wound care nurse today... but she was thinking maybe Dr. Bouton should take a look again. Not only was Dr. B available- he came right over. How is that for timing? He thinks I need to see a plastic surgeon. (Friday at 9)
I have three (not very good) options as he sees it:
Skin graft surgery.
Skin flap surgery (muscle and tissue and skin taken from the back- big operation.)
Wound debridement surgery (already tried once.)
But maybe the plastic surgeon will have an idea?
Collaborating- is there truly any other way?
I've been so touched by all of your support- encouragement- and caring... thank you all.
