Shematoma...

Mum said it was OK to put her hematoma on the internet.

Why not?

I never take pain meds, but I've been downing Vicadin just looking at this sucker from across the room...

Mum says I have to let her have one every once in awhile...

So now I can cross "gigantic hematoma" off my list of things I've seen.

Mum is more pissed off than in pain at this point.

She doesn't look good in either purple, or black and blue...

WOW!
I had a giant bruise once when a very large horse stepped on my thigh but it didn't look that bad. I don't think anyway - I certainly didn't require painkillers or at least I didn't take anything. It did hurt like hell for a very long time and turned many different colours while it healed. The bilious yellow towards the end was lovely.

Ditto travistee's comment. Hope she's healing quickly.

Holy crap! Are you sure she's not in danger. Does she take blood thinners or something? My gosh, that looks and must feel terrible.

Could be worse. Eighty years ago they would have attached some leeches to that sucker to drain it. Aren't you glad you don't have to look at that?

Hope she feels better soon.
