Crippled Update

Went to the docs today to firstly, inspect the incision from my port surgery on my neck, and second, to inform my doc of my current state of crippled-ness.

First, neck incision is fine. Not infected, just has a bundle of scar tissue underneath and will scar a little hard. She wrote me a 'script for an antibiotic though incase the inflammation doesn't go away, but i will only begin it if that is the case.

I go back in a week.

Second, i showed the doc my fingers. The verdict is in and I have 3rd degree burns. I have to put Polysporin on the blisters repeatedly and keep them covered with bandages and gauze until they erupt. The blister on my middle finger is the worst, as it looks like a dome and is roughly the size of a dime. You know those googly-eyed fish at the top? The blister looks like that. Like if it bumps into something it will explode goo everywhere.
Will keep you updated on the current state of my goo-encased crippled finger.
