    Yup. Thanks. Just got back from the urgent care clinic. Took off the original bandage and she gave me a tube of Neosporin...and bandages. Looks good no redness. Leave it exposed to air when not working on farm. Cover it when working..

    Hurts like hell and itches but other than that no damage..

    Did the urgent care doc suggest anything to reduce the pain in your head, like a cold pack for 20 minutes, or Tylenol or Advil?

    If you decide to use honey on your wound, you will need a medical grade honey for that purpose. Here's an article about medical grade honey:

    I think your wound will improve well with Neosporin. If you haven't overused it in your life, then it should be effective.

    Healing prayers continuing ~

    So, the stitches will come out Saturday at 4:00. It is all still sore but not super painful.

    The urgent care clinic that I used which is 1.1 miles from my house....they let you make actual appointments. Really neat. I did call my neuro to leave a message that I am falling a lot more....although usually I am aware and do not hurt myself.

    Has anyone read about Tru.... I forget but it is a bio similar to Ocrevus and Rituxan but will be cheaper. I will go back to Dave Bexfield’s site to find the accurate name.

    We had a crew today and one greenhouse was recovered with new plastic. Looks so pretty now!

    Will you have your stitches out before or after Market on Saturday? That's great that they schedule appointments and that it is so close to you!

    That's a good feeling to see the new plastic on your greenhouse, I'll bet.

    May your crops be bountiful!

    Love & Light,

    Well in another couple of hours you should get your stitches out Linda. Hope all goes well and everything looks like it is healing well.

    Thanks for asking. Stitches came out at 4:00 Saturday. No problem. Nice scar. Eye still black and blue and head hurts if I press on the wound but it is 90% healed.

    The urgent care clinic I first went to is only a mile from my house. Open all day 7 days a week. They called to find out if everything was ok the day after stitches were out. Nice.
