I should have told them at the hospital that I was allergic to Betadine. I'm sure you know what it is if you've ever had any surgery. It's that nasty orange stuff they wash the area where the incision is going.

Unfortunately, the nurse wasn't too careful when she washed the area for the heart cath tubing as I've got orange stripes from my naval to my knees. I look like a home tanning job gone bad! It's a good thing I'm not planning on wearing shorts or a swimsuit anytime soon as that stuff has got to wear off. I've scrubbed until my skin was red and there's no change at all. It's just really lovely. Not!
