About a week ago or so we had overcast skies here with off and on rain. In the afternoon while looking outside I saw white stuff coming down. Snow? Nope. It turned out to be tiny-sized hail. However, later that night my aunt called to tell my mother it was snowing outside. I headed to the front door, stepped out, then was promptly blown back inside by the wind. But looking outside I could see real snow flakes flying by. My mom pointed to my clothing and sure enough I had flakes on my t-shirt and sweatpants. It's always cool to see snow around here because it doesn't happen often and usually it's gone and melted in a few hours. This time around it didn't even last a half hour.
When we last left our hero, he - uh - I was supposed to go have the stitches taken out but the two interns I saw wanted a doc to look at it because there was a spot that looked infected. Said doctor came by and agreed with the interns then put me on a 10 day course of antibiotics (Clindamysin.) Antibiotics have a list of possible side affects and wouldn't you know it, I got one: diarrhea. Meh! So, I went back last Friday where Mark, a previously mentioned intern, says it looks good then brings in fellow intern Rene to confirm. Yup, good. While Marks removes the stitches he remarked they used a running (coiled) stitch rather than the repeated-loop type. He even showed it to me after he removed it. I go back next Friday for a follow up which should be my last visit there, I hope.
