not the plan

  • Sep 11th, 2019 at 3:56PM

When I was 9 years old, I fell playing four square at day camp, and tore a big flap of skin on my right palm that had to be stitched closed.
The following year, I got a cyst-like bump in the palm of my right hand.
Been there ever since. Doesn't hurt, just a lump of something in my hand for like, nearly four decades.
Brother told me it was clearly an alien implant / tracking device. I haven't paid it much mind, but recently it gets right in the way of a proper barbell grip, which is annoying.
I went to the hospital and they did an MRI; apparently it is a something just under the skin, and easily removed.
Had surgery two weeks ago to remove the implant...since then my phone's GPS signal is quite weak so clearly the aliens are pissed. And I have five stitches in the palm of my hand. Doctor's orders: don't get it wet, don't exercise, let the stitches heal.

SO, of course I continue swimming because, as we have already established, I am really not good at following directions.
Supposed to have the stitches out tomorrow...we shall see because honestly it really does not look like it's healing right.

If you want to see it, check out my instagram. I am not posting a link here because honestly it's pretty gross, so anyone motivated enough can make the effort.

Did 16km (10 miles) hiking up and down Mt Takao past weekend carrying a 30lb (13kg) ruck. In the 34C heat with 90% humidity. Did you miss the part where I make bad decisions?

Also a lovely hurricane came to say hello Sunday night and caused a great big mess in Tokyo and the general vicinity. And now it continues to be Too Hot. Ready for the damn autumn already!

Hmmm....not healing... could be something to do with not following doctor's instructions? Hope it heals anyways! Agree on this yucky weather - was 34C with a 42C heat index in Nagoya today.

        lol @fish ...thx for clarifying..I was JUST going to say :))
        that thingi look like a larva of some kind :))

        btw. that wound doesn't look too bad ...but I'm guessing that was before you went swimming , right ? I used to work at open heart surgeries NOTHING can gross ME out :))
        ....you SHOULD follow instructions , sometimes.
