i know my loyal readers have been following the progress of my shoulder with interest, so i thought it was time for an update. this photo is an old one. although herself has been documenting my progress with her camera, i know that many of you are of a gentle disposition. the sight of my now unclothed shoulder might be a little too much for you. so i will try to keep the medical details a little vague.
about a week ago the
it seems this is good news. there had been a risk that i had something called mrsa which would have been much worse. it also could have been a bit grim for herself, who had bathed my shoulder without covering up a cut on her finger.
anyway, the stafflocockus should respond to one of the many pills i am on.
so now the bad news. as my wound isn't healing this may mean there is another problem stopping my skin from healing.
now for the even worse news. if it doesn't heal up soon i may have to have plastic surgery. this will involve a trip to suffolk, a four day stay in hospital and a bill of about two thousand pounds. which, for my overseas readers, is enough to buy you quite a decent car. as herself has just sold quite a decent car to pay off the credit card bills this news caused a certain amount of alarm. herself will have to do quite a lot of cleaning and gardening to pay for me to have a plastic shoulder.
so there is a lot of pressure on me to get healing. i may have to do extra dog yoga...
