It's amazing how quickly Dennis is healing after his surgery. He went for a mile long walk today. He's off all pain medications and he might even work for a few hours a day beginning tomorrow. I'm so happy with how things are going.
I had a follow up appointment with the dermatologist today regarding the lump on the back of my hand. He was very pleased with how it responded to the treatment and didn't feel he had to inject it today. I showed him some itchy dry places on my legs that drive me crazy when they first erupt. He gave me the following advise:
Shower in warm, not hot water and then pat dry. Within 2 minutes of getting out of the shower put your lotion on. It will seal in the added moisture from your shower and will be more effective along with the lotions. I'm going to start doing that in the morning and see if it really helps.
He gave me prescription cortisone cream to help with the itching. He told me to put that on first and then cover with the lotion. Hopefully this will take care of it.
My sister is coming for a short visit. I'm so happy! We've talked on the phone quite a few times since getting home from our Italy trip but I haven't seen her in person. She's such a special person in my life.
I'm ordering some Christmas toys today for my grandchildren. If I order before November 18, he shipping is free. Yippee! Seems so strange to be thinking about the holidays.
My life is quiet and boring. Wish I had some funny or exciting things to write about. Maybe next time.
