Efudex Day 13

13 days down, 8 to go...although the healing period will be an add'l two weeks. At least.
I discovered two important things today:
1) While I have a relatively high threshold for pain (childbirth will do that for a gal), I have ZERO tolerance for itching. And, oh, how these lovely lesions itch. Like chicken pox, they prickle. ARGH!
2) While the bangs strategy was genius from a cosmetic standpoint, the fringe feels like little needles when it brushes against my forehead. I had to pull my hair back in a headband as soon as I got home from work. Hopefully, I won't gross anyone out at the dinner table tonight.
Serenity now!

Congrats on booking a cool trip. We have done all the UK except Wales. I think it's my favorite part of Europe. Probably has a lot to do with my Irish heritage. Sorry about your ef u hell. Stay warm. Cheers, from Texas.
