I decided to try some new lip wax strips. You are just supposed to tap them in place and yank them off fast. However, I wasn’t told
to only put one on at a time, don't warm them and don't pull them off slowly. I did all the things you weren't supposed to do and therefore my face was full of pink wax. I tried wiping it off, then put an ice cube on it but that only made it harder and slippery. I tried face cream. Nothing. Finally, another strip was used to rip the previous wax off. I will never do that again and, by the way, it didn't take the couple of hairs off but my lip was swelled up like I had Botox. Not a pretty sight.
On to health issues. My bladder is doing a lot better now with the new pills double the strength. I got the result back from my pap test and everything there is perfect and good for another year.
My big toe on my other foot, however, is now killing me. I have to wait for an appointment to get the surgeon to cut the nail out like he did the other toe. It's strange now such a small piece of nail can hurt so much. And, my fingernails keep breaking off so I have to cut them every day.
But the big news is: all my other tests came back great! The cancer is going down and my hip is rebuilding bone strength and the pain there is gone. I especially notice it sometimes when I have to walk upstairs.
Have a great week folks. And remember, in this hot, humid weather it is important to make sure you drink plenty of water and are not in the sun too long.
