The one-shots are done (gallery here callmepo.deviantart.com/galler… and I am back to painting this gift for a friend.

Still got a few things to do before I open up for commissions (which should be soon) as well as deal with my new paradigm...

Everyone has heard of Schrodingers cat - a cat in a box which is considered both alive AND dead until you actually check - I have a sort of Schrodinger's Leg!

While I was housesitting I kept on running into the sharp edge of my friend's bed and about 2 weeks ago I hit it so hard and at a corner that it got gashed pretty bad.

Took a day before it stopped bleeding since it was the shin and the tissue is always in tension so the wound kept on opening up - stupid me did not go and get stitches right away.

The good news is that I was able to go to a clinic Monday and get it assessed but by that time it was already a little infected. Now I am on antibiotics and applying fucidin ointment and fresh dressing 3 times a day to help it get better.

Here is the paradigm:

Because of the dressing I can't observe the leg wound. If I check the wound I am exposing it and have to clean it and apply more ointment and a new dressing.

So here I am typing with an itchy leg that is in a supposed to be healing but feels like it is getting worse and I can't confirm it until I expose it and reset the worries once again.

I am dealing with a Schrodinger's leg. >.<

Itching is living skin, no itching is dead meat, be happy. And as :iconlordaltros: said it is good to let it breath once in a while.

From someone who has plenty of personal experience with wounds and scars.

Stress can complicate the healing process. Try to think about something else, like maybe the Swedish bikini team in the middle of a fabric shortage.
