This May be Too Much Information

I still have a dressing on my leg.  It's been over a week.  I've had washes, but no shower.  I am desperate for a shower.  I've been torn because I was raised that Dressings Must Be Kept Dry and, well, it's been a week, it's one stitch and how bad could it be?

So today I swathed my dressing with cling film, put a tubular bandage over to keep it in place and got under the shower.  It was bliss - until the postie rang the bell.  I could have cried!  I'd barely got wet.  In the end I channelled my inner awkward, leant (discreetly) out of the window and told him to leave it on the step.  Then I finished my shower in peace.  The dressing is fine and I feel a lot more presentable.  My awesome new neighbours took in the package.

So it's life as usual here.


  1. Nearly too much info!
    Glad you got your shower, it's so warm today a shower is a definite necessity

  2. Oh dear! People always seem to stop at the most inconvenient moments. Glad you were able to get a shower and feel better. When I had surgery on my ankle I couldn't put any weight on it at all and had to keep it wrapped for two weeks. Not fun. Hope it is feeling better!

  3. Bless your heart. Been there done that. Hope you have your stitch out soon and heal up perfectly. :)

  4. Hope your leg heals well. Glad you kept it dry while showering. I think you handled the door bell situation very nicely!
