I have alcohol running through my veins!!!!

Literally...well, ok not really. But I do get alcohol injections about once a month (and not the "fun" kind!)

I have a facial Arteriovenous Malformation (AVM) and am receiving ethyl alcohol embolizations with Dr. Wayne Yakes in Denver.

So while the alcohol isn't actually running through my veins (that would be really bad) it is being injected into them to destroy the AVM vessels and eventually provide a cure!

Check out my website to read my story about life with a facial AVM, meet my doctors, and stay up to date on my treatments through my "Denver Trip" reports!

A little less scabby today

So when I got to HBOT today I noticed that the gigantic scab on my face from last months embo, was kinda loose and hanging. A little nudge and it came off (I promptly threw it on the ground and stomped on it with a "good riddance!") So now there is a little bit of an ugly scar, but who cares! It is much better than the wound. I updated my "Timeline Pics" with a new one from today w/o the scab!

Now I just need my lip and my hole to finish healing! Progress!
