Vacation Wounds

It seems I always hurt myself. Maybe it’s because I’m 6’4″ and this world is built for 5 foot something. Perhaps I just play too hard when I’m having fun. The Kite surfing killed my hands and knees the other day. Knees because I gashed my knees on coral while body dragging. Hands because I have excema and my sores opoened up from all of the strenous work of holding onto the bar and the many hours in the water. It turns out the tropics are not the best for healing open sores. They get infected. Check out my hand below!  Those little puss bubbles starting showing up on both hands which is when I started taking the antibiotics my doctor had prescribed before I left in case of emergency. So happy I had those with me!
