Owie Documentation : One

Introduction
- - - - - - - - -
Regrettfully;
Although i intended for this to be a first rate job at documenting this owie,
especially after i said--
...essentially; "Promised"
--to fully document my 'next' owie...
This documentation has several substantial deficiencies...
.
÷Θ÷Θ÷Θ÷Θ÷Θ÷Θ÷Θ÷
.
figure a : Onset of Woogily Owie
- - - - - - - - -
i set the camera's distance to auto-focus incorrectly here...
Or--
It may be that i was holding the camera
even closer than is allowed for it's 'Close-Up' capability...!
This was taken around January 14th to the 17th; 2006...
When i first mentioned in my journal that this owie is getting woogily!
.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

figure b : January 16th(?) 2006 without Yellow Cover...?
- - - - - - - - -
This is the same day, without the weird yellow cover
That was probably dead skin...???

.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

figure c : Mysterious Yellow Cover
- - - - - - - - -
The Mysterious Yellow Cover
.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

figure d : January 20th(?) Sever Woogiliness.
- - - - - - - - -
It is getting worse, but perhaps amazingly...???
It Doesn't hurt AT ALL...!!!
--So i'm still not panicky.

.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

figure e : Same as d; Dug out a little
- - - - - - - - -
i can't resist digging these things out...!!!
i definitely have a masochistic streak
and love to claw at my own flesh...!!!
---
This owie didn't really present itself with
An opportunity for any really enthusiastic gouging...
i had one on my Right Knee a few months ago
That i decided to take care of all on my own,
And during the 'Cleaning' phase,
i used Q-Tips to poke into the owie
And discovered that it went down quite a ways...!!!
So i kept at it for awhile,
And the yellow pus & blood finally started to clear,
And i discovered a new region of White Pus...
That was considerably thicker than the Yellow Pus...!!!
So i dabbed that up as i continued to probe deeper and deeper...
( it continued to sink down for about a half an inch...!!! )
Then i found a larger 'Blob' that had a pudding like texture to it,
So i thought i might remove this with tweezers,
But it was just half way between a blob and pudding...
i decided to call it a Bolus,
Which seemed to be an entirely appropriate name for it...
Later; when i was telling this account to Nurse Practitioner Amy...
i'd forgotten that i called it a Bolus;
So the story seemed to lack the impact that it should have...!!!
So i struggled and dug, and probed and squeezed
And tried again & again to pull The Bolus out,
And FINALLY i was able to get a grip on it,
And yank it free...!!!
Then i cleaned it up some more,
Filled the cavity with 3 in 1 Antiseptic Salve
And with The Bolus gone,
i knew it would heal pretty quickly...
Which it Did...!!!
So these last two Owies,
Where they DIDN'T dig out The Bolus...
i felt cheated...!!!
And believed that they would Not heal as Quickly...???
But they both did pretty well...
i guess...???

.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

figure f : Same as d & e; Bandaged up
- - - - - - - - -
i probably put on some 3 in 1 antibiotic salve
But i don't think that i particularly did anything to clean it...???

.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

figure g : Probably a few days after d,e & f; Hamburger Phase...!
- - - - - - - - -
January 23rd...???

It looks like it's entering it's Hamburger Phase...
.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

figure h : Another view of g
- - - - - - - - -
i was probably trying to get a good angle...???
It's really hard to see my view finder picture in bright sunlight...!!!
So would point with my left hand to the owie,
Wagging my index finger back & forth,
So i could see it in the camera's LCD...
And try to get the camera in position;
Then remove my left hand, and snap the picture...!!!

.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

figure i : Another view of g & h
- - - - - - - - -

.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

figure j : From the g, h & i Sequence...???
- - - - - - - - -
These pictures were loaded by their sequencial positions in the camera...
But this certainly looks like it was taken before g,
Before i had a chance to scrape off some of the dead surface skin...???

.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

figure k : g, h, i & j Sequence; Antibiotic Salve
- - - - - - - - -
i don't like to skimp on the 3 in 1 antibiotic salve...!
i've had some remarkable cures by using it... ( sometimes )
Another miracle drug i've discovered is a generic version
of Waldomart's Acne Creme,
Which i think has antibiotic action built into it,
And also dries out the owie...
Which is usually Very Good...!!!

.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

figure l : g, h, i, j & k; All Bandaged Up...!!!
- - - - - - - - -
All Bandaged Up...!
i like to use the athletic stretch wraps
because my skin will just fall apart
if i put to much tape on it...!!!

.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Next: Waikiki Clinic...!!!
