A nosey day

Poor Dakki has her second black (reddish purple, actually) eye within the last few months. In fact, given that she has two of them, this would be her third (as well as her second, of course.) The first was from her eye surgery in February, and the two new ones are from a dermatologic surgery on her nose last week. Initially, she had one red eye, but it grew and spread. Here she is, looking at it in consternation. She has a lot to say about the entire medical field right now (me excepted, I hope.) The whole thing was an ordeal for her, and then it got infected! It looked great on day one, but on day two, not so great. I sent her off to the Urgent Care to have them take a look, because it appeared yucky to me. Really yucky! Now, after a day or two of antibiotics – which she is making a production of taking every six hours on the dot, checking her watch every few minutes as the appointed time approaches so she can get it just right – it looks much better. When I picked her up from the surgery, I said, “Gosh, you look just like Jimmie Durante.” The next day she went to visit Pauline. "Gosh, you look just like Jimmie Durante," Pauline said as Dakki walked in the door.

Sweet Dakki. I'm not sure I'd want my picture taken if I looked like Jimmy.

What a post to read just as I scheduled a dermatological procedure on my upper left cheek. Will I too look like Jimmy Durante? Wishing Dakki a speedy recovery.
