I hope that you will all forgive me for my absence lately.
We were lucky enough to go to Mexico a couple of weeks ago! It was absolutely wonderful! The hotel that we stayed in was amazing, the beach was glorious and my company wasn't too shabby either.
This is where my story starts to take a turn for the worst. I got sunburned on the first day on my legs, using SPF 50 and I was only outside for 2 hours. I didn't really think anything of it until I started to retain water. My feet went from normal to cabbage patch in 3 hours. Hmmm-this was weird. I got on the plane to come home and soon realized that super swollen legs do not mix well with changing cabin pressures. When we finally landed in SLC, I could have kissed the ground!
I tried to sleep that night, but didn't have a lot of luck. We headed to the Dr. the next day. Diagnosis-2nd degree burns. What to do now- rest, elevation.and pain pills.
By the next day my legs looked like something out of the Walking Dead, so we called a wound specialist.
Good news, they could help me, bad news, it was going to take awhile.
Warning-I am going to show you some pictures that are a little disturbing because they are so gross. Forgive me.
The 2nd picture is what my legs looked like as I was sitting in the wound office waiting room. Nasty! He took one look at me and said I had 3rd degree burns and cellulititis in both of my legs.
I have been in so much pain! Seriously, who knew that a sunburn could or would turn into this nightmare?! So I have not been able to do anything but elevate my legs and lay in my bed and take pain pills and yell at my kids from my room to stop fighting.
After 2 days of treating with silver cream, non- stick bandages and elevation, I went back to the Dr. to get full leg wraps/casts. They are like a cast, but they don't get hard. I thought that I couldn't walk before.
To make a long story short-my legs have really put a kink in my schedule of living. I have done nothing but watch lame TV, sit online and drink lots and lots of water.
I hope that you will forgive me for my lack of anything creative. I am hoping to feel 100x better by next week. Please bear with me until then. If you wouldn't mind, think happy, healing thoughts for me.
I so appreciate all of you and can't wait to be able to play with glitter and mod podge again. In the meantime, you can follow on me on Pinterest (I have been pinning like crazy) and watch my episodes of Sassy Style on My Craft Channel.
