I guess I have been very worried about my stitches. I think I freaked out sometime earlier this week when I dug around my prescription bag of cottons swabs, saline and ointment when I stumbled across some reading material that I vaguely remember the nurse stuffing in there. Thing is, when I read it, it specifically said not to touch the wound within 24 hours of the surgery! :(( But during the pre-surgery after-care briefing, the nurse also told me to clean it out first thing in the morning when I got up! (Which was about 12 hours or so. :() I was so sad and afraid that this is going to really leave an ugly scar. :( It's amazing how much reading a little bit of conflicting instructional stuff can really change things!
But I guess I can't quite do anything much else now. I did request for a scar cream that might help reduce the scarring and my doctor prescribed something that I'm to put on at night... as I pray that the Lord will be kind and help my skin heal up well whilst I do my part to ensure that I have a healthy diet and be disciplined with my ointments and creams and supplements.
I'm glad that I'm almost through this part of my journey though.
Looking forward to a good recovery period so that I can go visiting over CNY without any patches on my face. :)
On other notes, here's food I've been eating... I cooked/made some of them. :)
|Fish soup without the salty soup. :D|
|Egg white omelette with chicken & fresh diced tomatoes.|
Served with Japanese sesame dressing.
|I usually prefer the crusty bread type of olive bread, but I had to give in to the softer foccacia version for now.|
Simply can't resist olives. :D
|Smoked salmon spread and mint on olive foccacia.|
In small squares, of course. :)
|Angel food cake. It was a little too sweet though.|
Tasted a little like a soft meringue. ^^
|A cute wrap that I couldn't eat. My househelper had packed these for my other siblings.|
The sticker was so cute though that I couldn't resist taking a shot of it. :)
|Oatmeal squares in soymilk and freshly sliced peach. Delish!|
