…yeah, that’s what it looks like now. UG-LEEEEEE!
I realized today that as much as I don’t want to tell my co-workers why I was out sick on Friday; I don’t really have a choice.
- These bruises come out along my armpit, around my shoulder, down my arm and across my chest. Can’t really hide ‘em all.
- I’ve got an additional bruise that covers the entire back of my left hand. It’s from where they missed with trying to put in the IV the first time.
- Swelling… oh, yeah, still swollen and lopsided and looking like I’ve got two different people’s bodies attached to my chest. Sheesh!
- And, I can’t lift my right arm too high, or anything heavier than a coffee cup in that right hand, without pain… or busting stitches. Guess the research books and stacks of files at work count as heavier and on the “don’t do” list.
Guess I’ll have to tell ‘em and then tell them that I don’t really want to talk any more about it until I know final pathology reports on Thursday.
Will be interesting to see who listens and respects my wishes… and who doesn’t. I’m pretty sure I already know the answer to that… but it will be interesting nonetheless to see how accurate I am.
It will also be interesting to see if any of this swelling goes down before morning!
