I went to bed Thursday night and, for the most part, slept through Friday. My body was exhausted. The only times I woke up Friday were to eat. I couldn't believe how hungry I was when I woke up each time. I ate a ton of food.
Hopefully these are all good signs that my body is busy dominating the bacteria in my ankle. My ankle is more sore than normal, but a Capitals win tonight in overtime helped with the pain.
Tonight we had to change the dressings on the wound. We're basically wound dressing professionals now.
Looks like we had some leakage. I honestly didn't get a chance to see what the wound looked like before they dressed it with the iodoform stuffed inside.
Here's what it looks like to have a bunch of antiseptic yarn stuffed inside of your shin. To be honest, my ankle looks really good. I'm no doctor, but the discoloration seems to be dissipating. Pulling the gauze off of the wound felt amazing.
I finally got out in the sun Thursday afternoon. I apparently need about a dozen more outings to look normal again.
