A change of dressing

**WARNING: Possible gross-out and 'bikin geli' inducing image below. Reader's discretion advised. **

Here's a quick update of my finger injury. Last night, I was looking at my bandaged finger and I felt that the bandage looked pretty roughed up due to the excessive bleeding combined with the iodine solution used to disinfect the wound. So I decided to change the dressing and I got a pair of scissors, some fresh bandage, dressing tape and some antiseptic gel.

The first thing I did was to cut the bandage open using the scissors. As I was peeling, the bandages away, I did feel a little sting from the wound. Other than that, there was virtually no pain. Upon completely removing the bandage, I finally got my first look of the wound with sutures since it was wrapped up by the Doctor. My first thought was, "Wow.. that is definitely gonna leave a nasty scar.." It looked decent enough without looking too gross so I took a photo of it for this blog entry, just in case, there are any of you who are interested enough to see a photo of a mangled finger.

It's not as bad as it looks... really...

I then took the bandage, measured it, wrapped the wound with it and kept the bandage in place securely with the dressing tape. I felt so much better after that. The finger looked 'cleaner'. I popped some prescribed antibiotics and watched MJ's memorial on TV. Lots of touching moments and felt very sad for MJ's children but hey, at least I feel so much better for my finger. :D

Aaaahh.. clean + fresh = happiness
