This morning, I went in for my P.T. in the pool and did all of my exercises without incident. Then I change and went into the office for the stim (electrocution...at least that's what it feels like) and they were going to change my tape.
Typically there is gauze tape under my super duper strong tape b/c my super duper strong tape would literally rip my skin off of my leg. I take both layers off and notice that there is something that looks just like pus on the tape...some sort of green ooze.
WTF IS THAT???
I start to panic...I think about ignoring it and not telling the P.T. I really don't think I could go without my super duper strong tape.
Sweat...panic...sweat...breathe heavily. I want to ignore this. I want to tape over it. I want to have never seen it.
I couldn't do any of that though...there is a round spot about 1.5 inches in diameter where the skin has just worn away from being taped for about a month straight.
As we look at it and decide what to do, it becomes quite apparent that we need to let it heal. Probably a good thing as it just kept getting redder and redder...gross.
Holy shit...I really need to shave my knee! This is disgusting! Maybe this was a good thing as I'm starting to resemble a gorilla!!!
So, they taped the outside of my knee (which doesn't hold my knee cap in place at all) and we're hoping for the best.
Hailey is very concerned about my boo-boo and keeps checking on me (with her baggy leggings and all). She's not happy with this turn of events at all. Matt could care less.
Husband told me to spray it with Neo.sporin when I get home and that the spray wouldn't hurt...he's so full of shit. It hurt like a bitch! Oh well...gotta let it heal. Can't have some gross ooze coming out of my leg!
Oh, and this is definitely going to ruin the "jean stretching" that I had planned for this weekend...this sucker hurts!
This is so not worth of its own post...maybe I should figure out what Twitter is. Someone said it's like blogging for the ADD. Sounds about right, but by the time I get the hang of it, there will be something new to come along and ruin my life. Thanks for listening if you've hung in there...not so entertaining, huh?
