About Chuck

I am retired after a career in electronics and in publishing. Today, my wife of 50+ years, Sylvia, and I live in a house on a hill beside a dirt road in rural west Michigan. We enjoy living in this country environment where livestock and wild life out number the human population.

  1. oooh, we have matching scars!! ;) Be sure to always put sunscreen on it–it can get hard and icky fast if you don’t protect that scar. I’m not sure how often you go out without shoes, but it’s great advice if you are the sandal set.

    • Yes, it does. Four weeks later too. And yet it keeps looking better each day. I must be slow to heal.

      Feeling pretty good? Sorry, I’m not. Nevertheless, I’m off the heavy-duty pain killer. Pain has become discomfort.

    • I’m not in a hurry . . . at least not yet for the second foot. Maybe come October? That would slide it in between lawn mowing and snow removal. We’ll have to see what Dr Dave has to say about that.

  2. Usually my link ups are wordless or very brief, today I babbled. My oldest and his wife gave us a visit (just left on Monday), so I was feeling particularly wordy and talked about my son a bit. And now I’m babbling here explaining it too. :ha:

    Your foot looks good! Does that incision itch now that it’s healing?

    • The story you tell of your son is an inspiring story. I urge readers to check it out. A good mother will babble and brag on her children.

      It is getting better. I have some residual pain, but I treat the incision area with cream which has promoted healing and reduced itching.

    • They say it is worth it. It not much fun immediately after, but several friends and family members all report excellent results. Just be careful of pain control drugs. As I’m finding out, some of them have very nasty side effects. :(
