That's right, I got said bruise on the 19th of December, and it's just now almost gone!
This next part is rather gross:
It turns out that there is a sack of fluid, I can't remember what it's called, but it protects the bones or something. Anyway, when I hit the pavement, that sack ruptured... which is why I was so swollen, and it had a lot of red in the bruise because of rotting blood...
It grossed me out just writing that. I picture these things too vividly for my own good.
So, in order to get the swelling to go down, and for the bruise to get better, it has to get massaged everyday. I've been making Michael do it, because it hurts too much to force myself.
It hurts a ton to get it massaged, but it feels much better the next day.
And I'm happy to report that the swelling is all gone, and the discoloration is almost entirely gone as well. And it no longer hurts to walk!
And that's my treasure.
You're welcome. ;-)
eew... rotting blood. So gross.
I am very exciting to read your treasures! The linky will be open until Saturday night!
