Today was a special day. It was the first day that I could shower after my surgery and let the water help take the dressing off. It felt good!!
However, without the dressing my bruises are somewhat vivid which added to those from the IV line on my wrist leave me rather a multitude of colours.
Bruises have always fascinated me. Probably as I usually have a few that I’m not quite sure how I acquired them and I find it interesting to see them change colour and fade with time.
My current bruises are deep and will last a while. They’re at the black and purple stage with a hint of yellow just starting to appear in places.
These bruises will fade with time, leaving just the surgical scar to remember the surgery by. A scar I will wear with honour and thanks to all the professionals concerned.
