Not at my best today

I felt awful when I woke up; I had a terrible headache and I was nauseous. I think I was migrainy so instead of doing anything productive, I laid down and watched tv. Later on I felt better and did a bit of pattern preparation. I'm going to sew a top out of some striped fabric I bought ages ago - the fabric is primarily pink, yellow, and white and I think it'll be cute.

Tomorrow I need to call my doctor to find out the results from the fine-needle biopsy that my surgeon took 10 a week and a half ago. I very much hope that I don't have more cancer in my breast. I'm a little nervous about making the call tomorrow, of course, but at the same time I'd rather know what's going on. Knowing means that I can deal with it.

My incisions are healing well. There are welts from the bandagey-things that they put on that seem to be everywhere. I can also see new welts forming under the clear dressing I've currently got on the big incision. At least the bruising seems to be going down.

Welcome to the world of icky bandages :) Travis has bandage problems (the adhesive on some bandages pulls the first layer or two of skin with it), and I get rashes from any adhesive on my skin longer than a day. I understand your unpleasantness, hope it heals quickly :)

Love,
Robin

I'll be thinking of you tomorrow. I hope it's good news because a cancer reoccurance is kind of sucky news to get especially by phone.

Love, Mom

Adhesives often contain some very toxic chemicals so it's not surprising your skin is so irritated. I'm not allowed to carry duct tape in my work tool box because the xylenes affect my water samples.
