Erica Scott: Life, Love and Spanking

Ruminations, opinionated observations, darkly humorous blathering and the occasional rant from an outspoken spanko and unapologetic attention wh–, um, hog.

Quickie update & meme

I swear, come 2016 when all this is over, I will get back to making this a fun spanky blog again. For now, here is the latest: John went to see the surgeon today to get the splint off his thumb, have it looked at, etc. Despite the doctor’s best efforts, the biopsy result had not come back yet. (sigh) However, the doctor said the wound looked like it was healing well, the swelling is all gone, and John is feeling no pain. I swear, the man never took so much as a single Tylenol after having that procedure last Wednesday. (Did I mention that he also had the biopsy with only a local anesthetic, even though they offered him both Versed [a tranquilizer] and Propofol? He wanted to be fully awake and aware for it. I swear, the man is crazy.) So… we have to wait a little longer. But the doc seems to think (even though he won’t commit to it) that it’s not melanoma. We’ll see.

So, despite John’s thumb and my stomach bug, we had a decent Christmas Day together. I brought prepared food from the service deli at the market, picked up Starbucks for John, and we had a quiet night in, exchanging gifts and watching movies and various TV marathons.

And this afternoon, I saw Steve for the first time in a month! He’d finally been given the clear from his doctor to be around others, and his nose is much better. Staph infections are horrible. We even played a little — I was definitely out of condition, but I sure loved it. I need to get back into our regular play routine. Hopefully soon.

My stomach is much better and I was able to exercise yesterday for the first time in a week. So I’m feeling somewhat human again.

Two more days, and I can tell 2015 to go fuck itself. What a year. But since it isn’t quite over yet, I think I’ll shut up for now.

I know some friends did not have happy holidays this year, and I’m sorry. I do hope some of you managed to have some fun and be with loved ones.

    Sorry about your troubles (and John’s and Steve’s). Staph infections can be horrible. I’ve had a few and wound up needing six weeks of twice-a-day IV antibiotic therapy.

    I hope you caught “It’s A Wonderful Life” again. Kind of a holiday tradition with me. I don’t even have to watch the whole thing; I know it by heart now…

  4. Jade — I hope your 2016 is better.

    Anonymous — good gawd, I hope so!

    smuccatelli — as a matter of fact, I did, start to finish.

  5. John is crazy! I would have been like “knock my ass out”…why on earth would you want to be aware for any of that?!

    I’m glad everyone seems to be feeling better on your end. We actually had a pretty quiet Christmas as well. I kinda like them that way. No drama. 🙂

  6. Jay — I haven’t a clue. I sure wouldn’t. But John likes to stay in control. I guess I get that. Still, no freaking way! Glad you had a no-drama Xmas. I think we all need more of that.

  7. Can’t help to conclude that you guys are already in better shape – apart from these healing bodies, imagine: VARIOUS TV marathons. That must reveal soemthing about your condition. 😉
    Have an even greater NY Eve!

  8. Sorry to hear about your troubles in 2015. Unfortunately I can relate on some level as this holiday was on my list of all time worse. But as I always say “it is all about perspective” so Onward to 2016! I wish You the best for the year to come and may you look back at your 2015 struggles as distant memories.

    All the best,
    Enzo

    By the way, I would have been the same as John about the procedure, no tranquilizers.
