Well duh! That's a silly question.
Last Thursday I had a piece of shrapnel removed from my leg. The doctor told me to keep the stitches dry for a couple of days, which I did. I finally took a shower last night. First one since the surgery. Lori wanted me to wait until today to shower after she left, but I needed her to get some good pictures of my boo boo. We even took a couple of videos. I'll post those after I've edited them.
Lori has this thing for my pheromones and she says they smell better the longer I wait between showers. I think I'd start to have BO, but not according to her. I smell wonderful. Who'd a thunk it! A girl that doesn't want me to shower and likes it when I smell. LOL
I did have to shave though. She complains about my beard scratching her if I let it go for more than two days.
Whoops, side tracked again. I do that a lot, don't I?
Here's a shot I took of the stitches. I thought it was interesting how the skin was pulled tightly together causing a lump of flesh.
Here's a side view that Lori took.
Now for a close up! Just three stitches. I never saw this method of tying a suture before and believe you me, I've had a lot of them!
Here's the wound all nicely protected by some Bacitracin Topical Antibiotics Ointment and a Band-Aid Brand Large Adhesive Comfort Flex 2 7/8 in. x 4 in. Pad.
If you look closely, you'll see what looks like a dent on the bottom of my calf. This wound is probably where the shrapnel came from.
I hope you enjoyed yourself!
