Good Monday Morning My Friends - I hope you had a great weekend!
Well my weekend was a little boring - I had to sit and rest. The last couple of weeks my right leg has been getting red at the ankles. Well being the doctor I am I wrote my doctor an email last week and said I had celulitis - she was out of town so they gave me an antibiotic. My mom had had it and I really did think it was.
On day 8 of 10 days it is no better so I write the doctor again. She can't see me but Dr. Pink can. I go in and it is not cellulitis. She didn't know what it was - brings another doctor in and he didn't know either. They call the dermatologist and he got me in but I had to wait a couple hours.
Turns out it is something called Schamberg's Disease - pigmented purpura - or small blood vessels bleeding under the skin. He took a biopsy just to make sure.. I was told to go home and rest with my feet up - that is hard. A not so pretty picture. But what amazes me is this - you are totally well one minute and the very next your leg can look like this. The body God made is amazing. There was some swelling and they want me to go today for an ultra sound - but it is not swollen at all today. I want to cancel it.
Isn't this guy beautiful too?
Whenever I'm sad or down I go to things with color, animals/wild life, and music. I think these gifts are from God and are to be used to see HIS beauty in spite of all the sadness that is around. They heal me.
This is just plain beautiful...
Fantastic! Just click on colors below, let go of your mouse and sit back and enjoy a multitude of pictures, first in black and white, then in color. Phenomenal photography. What a colorful world we live in and take for granted every day. Black and white is dramatic, but in color...wow!
