So, as many of you know I've moaned and groaned about my abscesses that have resulted in open wounds. They suck!!! They hurt!!! They are seriously a huge inconvenience b/c I have to cover them with plastic wrap before showers and my skin becomes so irritated with the medical tape.
Anyway, after having an open wound one way or another since mid-October I finally showered for the first time without tape or plastic wrap last week...it was WONDERFUL!!! I was simply giddy!!!
Today. In the shower. I felt it. Another freakin' abscess!!! Holy Hell!!!! This time it's under my left armpit. Now, how am I to put a tattoo there? : ) I'm putting tats around each of my scars that have been from this horrible path I've been down.
I've made the call to my GI and left a message for my nurse. I'm assuming I'll have to be squeezed in for my surgeon...again. Then I'll have to either have this little lump of mine drained or removed...*faint*
At first I was in shock...then I cried. I did. I normally don't, but this really sucks. Now I'm just pissed. I have to reschedule a very important appointment for my client, and hope that she has a phone that works so I can tell her I won't be able to make it. Then the fact that we have a phone pyramid regarding my emergencies just makes me even more mad!
TODAY IS NOT MY DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!
And you know what? I'm going to Starbucks later and I am going to get a Cafe' Vanilla Frappaccino...yep. I'm doing it. I'm going to get a venti sized lactose and caffeine filled cup of goodness...and I'll be up all night anyway with urgencies, so I DON'T CARE!!!!!!
Okay...My Negative Nancy face is fading, and I'm working on my Happy Hatti ficade (sp).
Have a great day y'all!!!

Life has never been so sweet! I appreciate the small things in life...the little joys that occur every second of every day. Though we struggle and have crazy complications, nothing can over ride our love and happiness.
Meeting with a surgeon next week...and hopefully scheduling the surgery by the end of the month!
