Let me preface this by asking that you pardon my white, hairy belly. The bruise on the right is from yesterday’s Lovenox injection. The one on the left is from this morning. I think the first one bruised so badly because I had a bit of a hard time sticking a needle into my belly, so the needle went in, my breathing increased so the needle came out a little and then back in. So I’m thinking I stuck the fatty tissue two or three more times than necessary, hence the influx of blood sent to the area.
I’m hoping to either have 1) minimized the bruising by day 10 or 2) have a really cool purple belt by the end of next week.
