crafty_packrat: (Swan Tam)
I think I'm sensitive to the fragrance in the blackberry soap I bought recently, since I've developed a slight rash on my chest and neck. I'm switching to an oatmeal-based soap and see if it clears up.

This is at least the second fragrance that I've wound up sensitive to -- artificial sandalwood was the first -- and the third thing that makes me break out into a rash (mango skin being the worst). I hope that it's not a trend.

I had my surgery yesterday (thanks, [livejournal.com profile] fabrisse for sitting with me beforehand), and stayed the night at [personal profile] meri_oddities because even with outpatient surgery, one really shouldn't be alone the first 24 hrs afterwards.

Medical details, possibly tmi )By about 2 am I could lay flat, and this morning I managed to take a shower and dress myself. I'm going to be very cautious about lifting anything with my right arm for the next few days, but hopefully it won't be a problem by the end of the week.

And maybe I'll actually be hungry soon, since I've eaten two pudding cups and two cups of yogurt, but the attempt at soup and soft bread I had to give up on after only a few spoonfuls. Ginger ale seems to help, or at least has calories -- I can get a 32 oz glass of water down, but it takes a couple of hours... and a straw, since my neck is still stiff.

Anyway, I seem to be on the mend, and hope to be up to light socializing soon.
