Like a Pearl


So those little bone granules that were working their way up and out-- not all of them made it. Some ended up healing into the bone as the graft like they were supposed to. But then there were a few that got stuck. Irritating that area to the point that my body has started to coat them with calcium. Not surprising-- what I saw come out were jagged little pieces, no wonder my body is trying to smooth them out. What I can feel under there is a crunchy surface with little nodes (for lack of a better word) that are getting bigger. Nothing I can do about this on my own.

I pointing to the offending area under that scar in the picture. But what I notice more is the lump on the left. That's also a calcium deposit, I think they call them horns. Doesn't hurt like the other spot though.

Number 11 (probably the shortest surgery I'll ever have) will be on the 17th. Two weeks from tomorrow.

Got you on my "healing thoughts" calendar for the 17th.

Good luck with the surgery. Hopefully it will be totally worth it!
