butterfly bandage... no stitch!
this morning i showed the picture of my sab wound to my mom... she thought that i might need at least one stitch... and she showed the pic to some girls at her work and they agreed that i needed a stitch... i called steven and asked his opinion... he thought it was probably too late to get a stitch (is that possible?) since it happened last night... i'm not even sure if a doctor would agree i needed a stitch... he/she might just put a butterfly bandage on it and send me home... and i didn't want to wait in an urgent care office all afternoon for a stitch or not... and, i really didn't want to get a stitch anyway... that's so scary! :) soo... i went to the drug store and got some butterfly bandages... and gauze and tape to cover up the butterfly bandage to keep it clean... since the butterfly bandage doesn't cover the would at all... the package that the bandages came in said not to take the bandage off for 3 days (unless instructed otherwise by a physician)... 3 whole days... wow... :) i guess if i let it sit there a day or so and then take it off... i could separate the skin that was just starting to heal back together..... yuck...
btw... it's 71 degrees..... i have my windows open... i have a t-shirt on... it's january 21st............ GRR!!
