The Dermatologist cut the wart off my thumb...
Apparently since it has been with me for so long it had deep roots. The hole is about 1/4 inch across. Pretty deep and ugly too. Surprisingly enough it doesn't hurt much. If at all. YET... Supposed to pack it full of petroleum jelly and keep it covered with a band aid. Funky as it looks I don’t think I’m going to mind keeping it covered. *grins* The jelly is supposed to keep it from forming a scab. She seems to think cracking that open will cause some discomfort. Said to take extra strength Tylenol, and offered to write me a scrip for Vicodin. WTF?!?
I said, “Darlin’ I’ve had two surgeries in the last six months ~ I’ve got plenty of pain meds... But hopefully I won’t need ‘em.”
She said okay but if I needed something, I should give them a call.
The original band aid fell off a little while ago. I’ve washed the area and will be covering this CRATER up very shortly. Heh. Since the airs been getting to it it does seem to sting a bit. *grins*
They deadened my thumb up pretty good before hand. At one point the doctor looked up and saw me watching as she was cutting and digging *Well she WAS* and asked me why I was watching. Told her the way it felt I didn’t mind. It could have been someone else’s thumb for all I was feeling. The only time I didn’t really look is when she used the cauterizing tool. My flesh was Smokin’! Ewwwe!
Watched “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” a while back. This week I watched “The Girl Who Played with Fire”. I liked them both despite the fact they were in Swedish. Either subtitled or dubbed. (TexasT’s rates ‘em both at 4-1/2 T’s (Was telling The Offspring about them and the fact I didn’t think the last part of the trilogy (The Girl who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest) was out yet. She said that the third was playing at River Oaks. What?! So I may need to go see it.
She asked me if I had read the books? Nooooooo. But I promptly bought ebook versions of all three. She hasn’t seen the movies or read the books either.
I just finished Dragon Tattoo. Excellent read. The film was pretty faithful. Too bad Stieg Larrsen died. I think he showed great promise.
