Udate on my back/abdominal issues - good news... this past week I actually felt quite good, a few bad hours here or there, but overall a really good week.
However!!! While Rich was helping Bill this past Saturday, he pulled his back again lifting the boat trailer. In an effort to make him more comfortable I pulled an icepack from the freezer , covered it with a small towel and gave it to him to put on his back while laying on the couch. Unfortunately, the towel must have slipped off one side of the pack as he was getting it into position. After 20 minutes or so, he had a VERY large frost burn! A little later in the evening it started getting a few little white bumps and we applied some neosporin. Sunday morning a VERY large (close to a 1" diameter) blister had formed. After calling the Nurses hot line........ we discontinued the neosporin and were told NOT to break the blister, and to apply a moisturizing lotion several times a day. He was very careful sitting and laying in bed, BUT when we headed to the bait shop Monday afternoon, he got back in the car, forgetting about the burn, and he broke the blister. Now the totally RAW area is being treated with vaseline and covered lightly with gauze. ( I don't have any bandaids big enough!) So, between that and slicing his finger while filetting fish on Saturday - he's pretty well bandaged!
So if you see this bandaged limping couple coming your way - it's probably just Rich and I!!
Sunday was a very hot day, up in the 90's. We didn't head out fishing until about 6:30 and even with our new crappie jigs - we caught ONE keeper crappie and 6 baby perch! But there was a small raft of ducks that did pass us by........the best picture of the day~
