Well, it has been the allotted 48 hours, so I removed the original bandage, cleaned the wound, put an anti-biotic ointment on it and re-bandaged it. That is a very awkward place to try and get a bandage to stay put. The incision is along the valley where my nose connects to my face (or used to – grin).
This morning was the first time that I got a look at it. I don’t know why he made the incision so long, except I heard the nurse say that he wanted a long enough incision for the stitches. It is like an old surgeon that is long gone from this world used to say when his patients wondered why he made such a long incision; “Incisions heal from the sides, not from the ends”. That was all he would say. Maybe he had big hands, what you think?
OK, here is a question for you. I took a picture of the incision and didn’t want to post it, in fear that it would offend someone. What do you think, should I post it or should I leave it up to your imagination? Sometimes the imagination is better and the real thing is disappointing.
Got to run, have some things I got to do and places I have to go. You all have a great day now, you hear?
