Today, being a Monday is surprisingly not a blue Monday at all for me. It’s the first day of school for the girls after a 10-day Hari Raya break. Though it drizzled in the morning and I could not exercise outdoor, I did 40 minutes of brisk-walking at the corridor of our condo lobby after sending the girls off to the van.
Since we still have half a loaf of award-winning bread from Wu Pao Chun Bakery, Taiwan given to us by the hubs’ Taiwanese aunty, I was thinking of making cheese on toast for Cass and myself. But the hubs called me out for brunch. So off I trotted to the coffee shop to meet hubs… and indulged in some sinful morsels – char koay teow with 2 duck’s eggs and nasi lemak.
Back home, the mil made a batch of almond meal banana choco chips and pecan muffins. I absolutely love them. Guess this will be the last time we get to savor her bakes until a month or so later. She will be off to Hawaii in a few days.
The best thing that happened to me today is the shedding of the scab on my wound. This wound is the biggest of the 3 holes on my lower abdomen, where the laproscopic myomectomy surgery was performed on 29 May 2017. I’ve been waiting for this to happen for almost 6 weeks and finally the scab dropped off, PTL!
The picture on the left shows the wound on 28 June 2017, i.e. one month after the surgery. It was slightly inflamed, though there was no pus or discharge. It was itchy and the type of clothes / fabric that I wore affected the wound. Clingy clothes and non-cotton fabric would aggravate the wound. The position of this particular wound made it very susceptible to touches and I got hit there by the little active rascal on a few occasions. On one occasion, I wore a very loose pair of skorts but the waist band (non-cotton) aggravated the wound and made it itch really badly for days. Finally I snap a picture of the wound and Whatsapped it to my surgeon. She recommended an antibacterial cream, which I bought from a pharmacy and applied on it 3x a day. That got the problem fixed I guess, along with lots of prayers. Did I tell you that I attended a Supernatural Encounter with Guillermo Maldonado (Healing Rally) at the Kelana Jaya Stadium on Saturday night? I prayed fervently that this wound will heal and that the scab will shed. And a day later, the scab dropped! Some other healing is happening too and I shall blog about it much later. For today, I shall talk about myself.
The picture on the right shows the wound today, right after the scab dropped off. I feel really liberated today – finally free from the annoying thick crusted scab (consisting of sutures and skin) that’s been clinging on stubbornly to my skin and dresses for 5 weeks, causing it pain each time it got velcro-ed and pulled by my dresses. I’ve been wearing loose dresses the past 5 weeks and now I can’t wait to squeeze into my tight mini skirts and shorts again!
