Wound Care: The Final Entry

My original wound from last Fall is healed. Yes, my long experience with wound care has come to a halt. My right hip, the large grossly infected hip wound is officially gone. I will have quite the scar to remind me to be exceedingly careful. I am by no means going to simply hop up and resume my old schedule. That will take time and patience. But the life threatening original problem is gone. I am happy in the extreme. I can move my bed out of my living room and into the bedroom. I can put all my furniture back. I can actually relax when sitting. Today is a big day! I did not get here alone however. I had world class help from my family, friends, and the wound care people at Northern Westchester Hospital. The big question now is the future: how to never ever put myself in this position again. I am going to be cautious in the extreme. Going out today and buying the biggest mirror I can find for self examination. But for now it is party time!

Wow, congratulations! You know, The Sharper Image has a great mirror that I just love. I use it to put on my make-up & pluck my eyebrows. It's fully adjustable & has a perfect regular reflection on one side, & 10x magnification on the other side- perfect for nearsighted bookworms who want to get a good up-close look at their eyebrows & other features. It's called the Natural Light mirror, & it comes in a wall-mounted version, which, in my opinion, is the best. It can move, tilt, or swivel to any angle, & gives outstanding views of yourself both in standard view & in 10x magnification, in case you want to get a closer look at something. Go to www.sharperimage.com & enter "magnifying mirror" into their search engine. They have several variations on this mirror, & one of them may meet your needs.

Cait, I am the proud owner of a high end make up mirror. I laugh about this every time I look at my ass. I sure did foul up the Sharper Image demographics.

Muddling demographics is the best way to live. :)

Feisty, I love to get deals but not longer give out any information, as in none. When I do I always put in one illogical answer, usually an inflated or deflated income. Nothing that matches my zip code.
