Incision busted open again today. Got to see my doc, who advised me to let it drain. Apparently it's "old" blood, not fresh bleeding. Could be as old as from surgery, could be something I've done since surgery. Either way, it needs to be managed. Sometimes this is the way the body manages it.

So I've got this great splint on my wrist and one side of my bra stuffed with gauze.

Just about as cool as it gets, eh?

... may there be mercy and I don't ruin all my clothes!!!

You should probably plan on wearing a lot of brown.

How fun. Not!

Goodness, I hope this all eases up for you quickly! What a rough time. I love your sense of humor throughout it all. Thought about making a comment myself about how Kleenex used to be a popular bra-stuffer, but I've never heard of using gauze :-P

Seriously, though, I've taken red wine out of a white shirt with Murphy's Oil Soap before. Rub it in good with a little cold water, let it sit a bit, wash a couple times, and ta-da!!! White shirt. I've heard of it being successfully used on blood as well. Worth a try!

Funny that I never stuffed kleenex in my bra as a teen, but stuff it with gauze at 46!! ;-)

So far Spray & Wash has gotten all the blood out of my bras... but, Jen, love the tip on red wine!!!

Q - wore brown to church today. LOL!
