Scald Wound – 2 Weeks After

The scald wound has finally healed. The scabs have been coming off bit by bit. Two days after the incident, I was invited to conduct a session on Disability Equality Training in Kuching next week. I worried if the wound could heal in time. It will be inconvenient for me to wear pants for a long period of time with the wound still raw and especially so far away from home in an unfamiliar place.

One good thing about my body is that scrapes and wounds like this heal without much problem and I am thankful for that. I have one less issue to worry about when I travel. At the very least, I do not have to avoid taboo food like prawns, mackerels and eggs that the Chinese believe will cause wounds to heal very slowly, not that I eat a lot of those food anyway.
