The scar on my left leg that was given more attention, loved and kissed, more than any scar really deserves to be loved and kissed (thank you Isaiah!), was removed this morning. I didn’t count the stitches, but I would guess there are somewhere between six and ten of them. My leg will be wrapped until tomorrow (maybe longer), and I will live and wash and shave as usual for ten days at which point the stitches will be removed and I will be informed of the lab results. The back of my knee is numb (hoping there isn’t a blood clot stuck in there), and I feel like the deadening shot is affecting my optic nerve, but other than that, all is well. I plan to read in bed most of the day. That’s where I’ll be if you need me.
