I stopped measuring the large, gelatinized blood clot in my upper thigh daily because I wasn’t seeing any noticeable results. I started doing it every three weeks instead. And, for my own sanity, thank goodness I did. I measured it yesterday and it’s down to 3 inches x 3 inches. It was 3 1/2 x 3 3/4 about 3 weeks ago. I’m sooooo very happy I won’t have to go under the knife to remove it!
There’s still a lot of swelling so my leg still resembles something out of a horror movie. It’s noticeable under my dress and I couldn’t wear jeans right now if I tried. The boys are going ice skating tonight but I can only watch because, if I fell on it, it could break apart and the results could be very, very bad.
Whenever I see someone on the dock, they want to look at it so I’ve spent more time raising my skirt in the past nine weeks than I care to admit. One dock neighbor in particular always wants to touch it. She’s a hoot! It feels like a hard, rubbery pancake…hence the nickname.
Lots of people have asked me about my New Year’s Resolutions. Here they are:
- Write more books
- Read more books
- Stick with my promotion schedule for our books and publishing services
- Stop reading political articles
- Spend more time with family
- Stop letting myself get pulled into other people’s drama (I sincerely wish I was a hermit living in the woods sometimes.)
- Stop eating sugar
I think I have a pretty good shot at meeting all of my resolutions…except for that last one. 😉
Happy New Year, everybody!
