A well-stocked medical supply cabinet

You know what the Wound Care Center looked like about a week and a half ago?  Well, we've now expanded to something along the lines of this:

Needless to say, this little stinker is the gift that just keeps on giving.  However, I'm happy to report that as of Tuesday morning I no longer have gauze packed into my chest - soooo exciting!!  Now I just do a Neosporin + bandage routine that isn't so bad at all.  Oh, except for the nasty allergic reaction I had to what I previously referred to as "really cool wound dressing film" and now refer to as "the deceptively awesome-seeming-yet-truly-not-awesome wound dressing film."  Hence the tubes of cream that are attempting to heal my skin.

Back to the doctor in the morning for another check-up and surgery discussion.  Apparently this was a rather deep cyst, so it's looking like the OR and I have a date in the not-so-distant future - want to get alllll of it out so I don't have to deal with this ever again.

Oh, and you know how freaked out I was about pulling gauze out of my chest?  I've really gotten pretty good at it.  Funny what you can do when you know you need to just deal with it.
