BoilBoy - The After Photo
And here's what it looks like after you've had a huge and grotesque boil excised, leaving a lovely crater in its place.
Morning routine now includes tearing off yesterday's bandage (and more of my back hair), removing the foot or so of bloodied packing gauze, irrigating the hole, and then re-packing with fresh gauze under a new bandage. And then usually I have a 2- or 3-hr nap, since the 2 percocets have worked their magic by then. Lovely way to spend a vacation week, eh! I'm just lucky to have Nurse Vicki in my life...
