Ouch !!!

Well I had my little skin cancer removed from my shin and unfortunately the skin was to taut to just be sewn together so the Dr's. had to do a skin graft. The process was performed while I had a local anesthetic ( would much rather have been put to sleep) although they did give me something to calm me down so I think I did sleep for a bit of the 40mins it took. I had two Dr's. working on me - one taking the piece of skin from my groin and the other removing the skin lesion. I felt pretty good yesterday after the operation but I think it might have been the drugs I was on because today my leg is quite sore. I have to keep my leg up as much as I can for about 5 days - bit hard when I run a Bed & Breakfast. I am so lucky I have a good friend -Vicki - coming up to Daylesford for a few days to help me out. But at least it is now over and I just have to deal with the next week until I head back to Outpatients and they do whatever they have to do. I am a bit of a wimp so I'm really not thinking of what they have to do.

Even though my poor old leg was hurting my heart was singing while I cuddled Clare - she needed a Granny cuddle as she had her 1st lot of immunisation needles today. She was so good and took it all beautifully.

  1. Awww, Clare is so adorable and growing so quickly. I'm sure when I get home my Elyssa will have grown as well. I'm learning not to blink having a granddaughter! lol

    Sorry to hear about your leg. At least today we have the technology that the doctors can fix us back up. I hope you weren't driving yesterday! Your friend is a gem coming to help you out. Is the bed and breakfast booked up? If I ever make it there I'd love to stay, just from the photos you've shared. It's so adorable!

    I wish you a speedy recovery, take care and try to stay off your feet my friend.


I would love to hear your comments.
