3/12/13: Today is the first day since I had my skin biopsy done on January 16 that the spot isn’t excruciatingly painful when the dressing is changed. It’s still very sore but I’m able to touch the wound and feel that it’s shallower. Michael and my dermatologist have both been telling me the spot is slowly healing but today was the first time in eight weeks that I could notice an improvement myself! I’m so glad we thought of using the opsite bandages. The entire area is also better after using the stronger steroid cream (clobetasol) for two weeks, although I can’t use it on the biopsy site or under the bandage.
The other, less happy, milestone today is coming down with my third cold since Christmas, this time starting in my chest and throat. In the words of Roseanne Roseannadanna, “It’s always something….” (Bonus points if you can identify the actress and show. Hint – watch this: Columbia School of Journalism Commencement Speech.)
