The excruciating itches of good healing

The itching!  Yikes!  All down the center of my entire chest.  Arghh!  It can't be scratched because the entire area is still much too tender.  And scratching doesn't relieve it anyway.  The itching goes deep because the wound is deep.  And Everywhere itches!  The long line down the center, the lower holes where the drainage tubes were, the 'owies' where all the clamps were that held my chest open - higher, lower, and to the sides. Battle scars.

But, good news!  I got to sleep comfortably all the way on my side last night.  Ahhh.  Bliss.

Gwyneth, I am very glad of your good report about your heart. At least the itching is a good sign of healing....

I took a long time to be able to sleep on my right side, with my new hip replacement. I have my many battle scars too.......


My prayers and love

Sterling
