are you squeamish?

If you are, then please move on to reading the next blog on your list. I'll wait....


Ok,I warned you. If you are still here you are A. either not squeamish or B. very curious... I took the son to the surgeon today for what should have been his last post surgery visit...

hm...not so much.

His incision is infected. I am not sure...but I think it has something to do with swimming in the lake of the ozarks for three days and not showering.. I'm just sayin...

So as I sat there, she sliced it open, let it drain and packed it. And then she said I have to pack it every 24 hours until next Wednesday. Yes folks...I have to shove stuff that looks like wet grograin ribbon into a small hole in his ass. great.... i am so excited....

And now he is outside and the girlfriend is shaving his head... sheesh...

going...



going....



crap....



luckily he didn't like it, so now the top looks like the sides... much better.

I think I'm off to the sewing room.. as soon as I have some lunch..

Hey guys...want some grilled cheese?

Oh, my...lots of excitement at your place today. I hope your son has learned a good lesson about infection in open wounds. Now he has a set-back and he really needs to be VERY careful this time. Gotta love how kids listen to us.....NOT!!!!

Ewwww! Not squeamish, but ewwwww! My daughter had surgery last year, was very careful, but ended up infected. We questioned the doctor about the wound when the stitches were taken out, but we were assured that they were fine. Two days later an oozing mess! Fortunately the hospital did all the dressings, I just had to drive her there. (Her surgery meant no driving for 6 weeks) She started off with a seaweed product packing the wound and finished with silver dressings! Good luck with the dressings. It took weeks for hers to heal!
