Healing 2

Day 133

Uncovering Burn

9:22am:
I've found that exposing my burn areas to the air causes faster healing. Raw burn areas do better when kept moist. Right now, I'm keeping raw areas moist with antibiotic ointment.

Readers have recommended Manuka honey for keeping these areas moist and promote healing. I would use it, if I could find it.

This constant pain makes me feel sooooo tired.

2:50pm:
Manuka Honey
Natural Grocers in Beaverton had two shelves of Manuka Honey. I've applied the Manuka with a non-stick gauze pad.






5:47pm:
Am I being tested?
Sooooo many things have gone wrong. Some big, like the propane fire. Some smaller, like just this afternoon my recharging method for the Mac stopped working. Also this afternoon, the trailer mirror fell off its mount . And remember the bashed in grey water tank?

Is my considering myself being tested as the cause for my problems possible? Or just a delusion?

One thing that has kept working for me through thick and thin, has been Scampy and Tránsito. If those two gave up on me, what would I do?

Is this guy cursed?



6:43pm:
Jojoba Hills removed me from Wait List
I just received notice from Jojoba Hills that my name has been removed from their Wait List. What??

This is just too much. Just too much!!

    you want to keep i The skin very lightly moist not dry, if you do it cracks
    The skin and set you up for and infection
    You can try pan as well it's a cooking spray ,The guys in the shop use that when they get a welding burn

  4. Yeah, pain is exhausting. Are you taking pain meds? Once a dsy or so can be good for a break from the pain. If they make you too woozy you can cut up the pill. Personally, I find even 1/5 of an oxy is a lot!

  5. How about taking a nice walk for some fresh air, movement and beauty? Also, Tumeric is a very potent anti inflammatory. Very
    Helpful for pain!

  8. Normally does not take very long but I have never had a severe burn. It might be a little longer in your case. You sure did a number on yourself. I feel for you.

  11. Wow George- hope the honey does the trick. My sister was a diabetic and she used raw honey on wounds that she had because of poor circulation and it did the trick. I hope you feel better soon!

  14. What? Removed from the Jojoba Hills wait list? I can't wait to hear why. What's the purpose of the wait list then?

    Well, if the reason sounds crazy, maybe it's a good thing.

    Good luck George,
    Mark

  15. I'm sorry to hear about all the glitches...they come in threes they say. Yes, let the burn crust over in a scab to naturally protect the wound. Covering and uncovering only reopens the wound. If it doesn't crust over into a scab, visit the burn unit and they will start treating the wound. Maybe you being booted off the waiting list is a blessing, you can get refunds and find other long term RV parking. Did they give a reason why you were taken off the wait list?

  16. Sounds like it is time to shoot Pete an e-mail and ask him if he will go over there to ask why you were removed from the list. They have your money; therefore, that should not have happened. Also, it's time to go back to the doctor and have him or her recheck those burns. Don't forget to tell the doctor you are still having pain.

  17. Oh, George what a week! Yes that burn looks very painful :(. And the Jojoba situation!

    No, I do not think you are being testing, although if thinking that helps you power through, then go for it!

    I think some of the problems are normal shakedown for a new-to-you rig (the hitch, greywater, mirror). Some are terrible bad luck (the nasty cop, the fire). Still it has been pretty much an awful trip.

    I had a trip like yours last winter. It happens. It was horrible, but i got through it.

    Goid thing you like adversity, eh?

  18. PS: Are you sure 'off the wait list' doesn't mean 'can move in now'?
