If you are squeamish, you might not want to look at the pictures I am going to post.
Shannon is traveling with a friend and they decided to stop in Chiang Mai, Thailand and do a Thai massage class for a few weeks. Shannon called the other evening and we had a conversation that went something like this.....
Shannon.."all is good now....but I had a hole in my leg. I can tell you now because it is all better. I have been to the hospital and been on 2 courses of antibiotics and the hole in my leg is only a scab now."
Shannon: "Really, mom, that is why I didn't call sooner...I didn't want you to worry. It really is all better now. I will send you a newer picture than these."
Shannon..."Really I am fine...don't worry. I have moved out the hovel I was staying in so I am in a clean place now and it is finally almost healed."
Me..."what-were-you-on, how-long-were-you-on-it,how-did-this-happen, when-do-you-see-the doctor again, why-didn't-you-call sooner.what do you mean you moved OUT OF A HOVEL!!!!?"
Shannon.."this is why I didn't tell you sooner. You are such a worrier...really, all is good. I will send you a newer picture next week when I can upload photos again.
Love you and talk to you soon.
OH and by the way...I am going to India in 2 weeks. Why don't you come over for spring break?"
I ask you...you look at the photos and tell me if I overreacted.......
