sore spots

yesterday morning we noticed three small skin abrasions on my left arm. it's probably from the brace rubbing against the sleeve rubbing against my skin, and complicated by the lymphedema. still, i can't risk a skin tear and infection. it could be life-threatening and put me in the hospital. so i called the physical therapist who recommended i see the orthopod for a brace adjustment. that's scheduled for later today.

today we saw five skin abrasions. the appointment is at 3 pm and i can barely wait to find out what the doc can do.
