The dressings have come off today. Well, I took them off today. I took off the dressing and cleaned off the caked blood.
I won’t post a photo of the wound and the stitches because that would be slightly morbid and very macabre. But the wound site looks good. It looks like it’s healing well and there seems to be, knock on wood, no signs of infection.
And now I am going to attempt something I have no way of knowing whether or not I can accomplish: ironing and all the work that goes with it (getting the iron out of the cupboard is going to be a particular challenge!).
