I Told You

Ahhhh soooo much bettah now.  No more itch and no more funky!

So I can tell you that I did have the full bandage wrap on for the entire day yesterday.  This surpassed my own expectations, but I recognize that the rest of the mature adult world may be less in awe of my limited (nonexistent) restraint.  This is especially true given that at two minutes past midnight, I simply couldn’t take it anymore.  Poof be gone gnarly germ harbor pretending to protect me!

Incredibly my husband is still speaking to me, but he did go out of his way this afternoon to tell several of our new neighbors that it was a giant nicotine patch for my raging habit.  (It’s a big band-aid, but it does appear patchy-esque.)  That didn’t really explain the other even sketchier hand, so no telling what they think of me now.  In all fairness, it’s just a matter of time before they know what a mega mess I am in general anyway.

My unsexy hand with the blown vein after the IV.

Ironically the IV hand hurts more than the one that had the actual surgery.  Is there anything to do after a rough IV job?  At this point, I’m planning on telling people that I’m one of the few barehanded female boxers in the state but that I did not fare well at my latest event.

***Ahem – slight revision to hand explanation per https://mainepaperpusher.wordpress.com – I’m one of the few barehanded female boxers in the state.  You should see how the other girl fared in our latest match. Ding ding baby!  πŸ˜ˆ

    Wow, it looks like they blew a vein. I had that happen once when being prepped for an MRI. Took over a week for it to look somewhat normal. I know it hurts. Hey, if you tell them that you are a bare-handed boxer you should NOT tell them that you didn’t have a good match. Tell them that your match was excellent. After all, if your hand looks like this, imagine what your opponent’s face must look like! Get all typey soon! Doing the blog gig without fingers has to be yuck.

      Honestly I was surprised that it happened. I have meaty veins any vampire would be thrilled to see. I do get nervous though so I was probably jittery when she set it. At least I have a good boxing story now. πŸ˜‰

    I felt a bit squiffy looking at your blown veins, but then, I feel squiffy looking at my non-blown veins. πŸ˜‰

      Those people do not know the sheer joy of misbehaving, being made fun of for your nonsense, and then laughing about it anyway (…after you leave the doghouse you were parked in for a bit…). πŸ˜‰

    I’m not surprised that you removed it. I hope you are healing quickly and behaving yourself and babying that hand. Please, tell me you are giving yourself healing time dear one! xo
