Oh no, I'm walking into the surgeon's office. I'm not going to work, promise. I'm close enough to work by doing my certification tests that I put off till now. So far two tests down with 100% and 90% totals and 7 more tests to go. Then I get my certification. I'll be a RAC-CT...exciting, huh?

I think that's very bad, Ogress. Please get this taken care of as soon as possible.

When I had that bad gash on my back, the doctor said for me to watch for things like this and to seek treatment quickly if there was a problem.

I'm very worried about you. Please go as soon as you can to a doctor and have this treated properly. I like you so very much and I don't want anything bad to happen of this, Ogress.

With love,
~Cat

Thank you Cat. There is no infection. And I am taking care of it the same way I would take care of a patient at work. Going to the doctor's office tomorrow.

PF, look after yourself. I am using you as my example for abdominal surgery!

Well, mine isn't as serious as yours, but I will have to look after myself after too.

Take care and let us know what the doctor says.

Get it checked now. If you were in the hospital working and saw that on a patient, wouldn't you make note of it and treat it? Immediately? The stinging is giving your a message. Listen to it.

One of two choices. Leave it alone so it can heal from the inside out, or put steri strips on it to close it and keeping it clean in the process.

You may suggest putting Silverdein on it. The wonder drug for open wounds.

Was playing catch-up on this thread and just read this one. Andy, the local folks have newly begun a farmer's market in the field just outside the stadium there at Jet Blue Park. Fresh veggies, baked goods. Guess we could call it "Truck Farm Day" down here. When I went this past Monday, there were lots of out-of-state license plates in the parking area, not the least of which were those with Sox decals and such.

Good one, Z!

I am trying to get up the energy to start my first project for the day - write up my shopping list so I can get out of here before the noon rush at Costco. I have four stores to go to and Costco is the first.

Wound update: no infection, keeping it clean and letting it heal. Shrek learned how to take care of it since I can't even see it without a mirror. The wound care is what I thought it would be and had already started.
