Bottoms Up

It’s not everyday that I put a picture of my bum online, so here is a special treat for you. It’s a close-up of a pressure sore that my carers discovered this morning. It doesn’t look like much, but unless I stay out of my chair and keep off it, it’ll grow in size and becomes the stuff of nightmares. Google images of spinal cord injury pressure sore if you feel like throwing up your breakfast.

I don’t know what caused it, but Elly blames my brother Kurt, who commented on the weekend that it’d been ages since I’ve had one. If anyone sees him this week, make sure you punch him for me.

I’m supposed to be teaching an intensive class this week, so I’ve decided to do it from bed. It’s a small Masters class, and the students are going to sit around my room while we talk about moltmann’s theology of hope, and feminism’s turn to embodinent, among other things. i guess that’s appropriate.

I started to get depressed but it was suggested that I save that till days 3 & 4, so that’s my plan.

    1. I love your comment that you’re saving depression for when you get more bored…… or something. here’s hoping it goes asap, and you have saved some Netflix series.

      Tan.

  1. Your remark on giving your brother a punch made me burst out laughing, maybe because I too have three brothers and alerting others to punch them occasionally seems so right 🙂 I hope your bottom heals quickly.

  2. Your comment on giving your brother a punch had me burst out laughing, maybe because I too have 3 brothers and a request for passing on a punch seems so reasonable 🙂 I hope your bottom heals quickly. XO
