1. SQUEAMISH WARNING!
Went to the ortho on Tuesday. At the bottom of my incision, something sharp was poking out. It wasn't really bothering me, but it was giving me the creeps when something would touch it, like the washcloth in the shower. So I pointed it out. Before I could say anything else, Dr. P had ripped open the steri-tweezer package, reached INTO THE INCISION, pulled out the knot of stitches, clipped the long stitch, and stuffed it back inside. AHHHHHHHHHH. I could feel the entire line of stitches tug while he was messing with it. I get the creeps just talking about it.
For those following the soap opera of my IT band, he says I can go ahead and swim (wait, I was) and cycle (ditto). We had a bit of a talk about where I was with everything and he said to continue to take it easy. I can do whatever I want that doesn't hurt. Come back in 3 weeks and we'll put running on the table.
2. To my puppy friends, put Oct 23rd on your calendars. Puppy party is a go. If anyone has any recipes for pupcakes, let me know!
3. We are - yet again - having internal discussions about the possibility of adding to our puppy family. I'm concerned that adding dog #2 to our sweet, well-behaved (mostly) dog will turn him into the antichrist and my house will be pulled down into rubble. Advice?
