My Fugly Arm
December 8, 2012 21 Comments
God… The Blazing Arm of Sunshine is gone and left a load of moldy crap behind.
Who’s arm is this? It’s not mine. It doesn’t look like the other one, that’s for sure. I should have blond hairs, not brownish ones. What’s that about? And it’s all skinny. I thought maybe there was something wrong with my wrist still because the bones are sticking out. But, no, it’s just skinny.
You’re all right about it being long-sleeve weather so I can hide it until it looks normal again. I’ve been promised it will eventually appear human. I feel like a molting gorilla.
Well, it’s working pretty good, so I can’t complain too much. The little bit of physical therapy isn’t annoying and just moving feels pretty good.
The washing definitely helped with the icky smell and to get the dead skin off. Seriously, there was dead skin like a python shed in there.
The lotion feels nice and smells all summertimey too. Having Nurse Jazz apply it has been brilliant and I even found occasion to use my hand for…a couple somethings…I haven’t been able to do for ever so long because I’m just not that skilled with my right hand. Jazz is also happier now.
This will be the last post from me until finals week is over. My last final is on Wednesday, but I’m taking the week off of work and having myself a mini vaca. I will probably pop in just to see what’s happening. Jazz and Alec have promised that they have everything under control for the Christmas Story List for Monday — so go add more books if you think of any! There are also a couple “something else’s” that they’re being sneaky about. Since the last time they were conspiring I got cowboys, I’m thinking this could be a good thing
