Got Out of the House

Yesterday I went to Super Store to stock up on Udder cream. I’m really going through a lot it so I picked up a tub and a jumbo tube. I’m now moisturizing my feet twice a day and they are feeling and looking so much better. I also drove over to a medical supply store to pick up some Kinesio Tex Tape ... I apply this tape on my hand and forearm to help move the lymphedema fluid out of my in my hand. I think its working.

I then asked the clerk what they had for dressing to apply to fingers and toes. She showed me a roll of tubular gauze. You just cut off the amount you need for your size of finger or toe and roll it on.

My daily moisturizing ritual is to put a big dollop of cream on gauze squares, put it on my big toe and then pull the tubular gauze on. A little medical tape to hold it in place and I’m good to go. Pretty slick.

I love how you are so optimistic, or matter-of-fact about it all! I never hear you complain...yes, you tell it like it is, but I never hear complaint in your words. Bless you!

Great that you found something that works for you! I have udder cream somewhere in my bathroom closet... I may dig it out. Dry skin is one of my enemies too!

Hope all is going well for you!

Reading your blog reminds me of the peaks and valleys of this journey. One day we can be in the depths of fear or discomfort, and the next we can feel uplifted by the joy of simply being able to go to the store. Hugs always
