So this happened on a dirt road once again, coming down from Parker Mesa. It was a reasonably washed out rutted road until a few months ago. Then it was graded and since then has been a wide dusty road. I must have hit one of the few rocks left, but it sure hurt:
|Fresh fall, Sept 23|
Now to the wonders of natural healing. I cleaned it very thoroughly, every day. But initially it didn't look too well and after a week I started to have second thoughts about not going to a doctor to get it stitched up. Now, however, it was to late to do much about it, even when I got some surgical strips. Looked like this would become a particularly ugly scar.
|Very nasty looking on Sept 30, a full week later.|
After 2 weeks, the yellow liquid had settled down. But it sure looked like a crater that would scar over.
|2 weeks later, October 7|
3 weeks later, still not closed, but noticeably less cratered
|3 weekss, October 14|
After 4 weeks, still not closed, but it actually started looking like a minor abrasion.
|4 weeks Oct 21|
|After 7 weeks, November 11|
|January 14, 2017|
And about 2 1/2 years, December 2 2018.
