I think you are thinking of vet wrap. It is amazing stuff (I always keep a bunch on hand and in first aid kit at home). It does work to keep gauze in place by sticking to its self and not the animal (or person). I personally love it.

But we also have an actual tape as well now. It’s fantastic for keeping things in place. Vet wrap can move if you don’t also tape it down and then the whole bandage is ruined. And defeats the purpose. But it’s still my favourite thing and I love our new sparkly ones we just got in from our sales rep. (Totally “borrowed” some for myself.)

:eek: oh, Evelyn would squee. We have a hard time getting anything except white and she, of course, wants pink. I didn't know they made it in prints.

Take you're time to heal dear Tak!
I'm going to do a week of bed rest to see if my EDS flare-up will come down with the rest and doing nothing but reading here on the forums and the Arena....watch Youtube...read books...and try to get a little bit of sleep
I have a daybed in the livingroom...so I don't have to lay alone in the bedroom...

I lost my dad last June, long story....
But since the cremation my *brother* and the little bit of *family* I had took alll the same side against me, and since then I had to take a lawyer to be able to got the halve of the inheritage I legally have right on!!!! But still nothing has being done by my *brother* who took everything and told everyone he would devide everything....but he didn't do a f*ck....only childsplay and stupid things to drag the whole thing on...and on...
Because I and my *brother* are the only kids so we are automatically the only persons who have the right on both the half of everything, because our mother died of cancer last year....
And why.....the only thing I can visage...is jealousy...it's so very pathetic behavior for peolple who are older than me, like my aunts and a niece...and my brother who is 6 years younger than me...i'm 40....

I had to have cadaver bone used in my mouth when they rebuilt part of my jaw. I asked the doctor if it was used from dead criminals, because I've seen enough horror movies to know when you get body parts from bad guys they can possess your body and make you evil! Already being evil I was hoping for a boost of power, but my doctor just laughed and called me a weirdo (very nicely, she's fantastic). I still like to tell people I have a dead guy in my mouth though. :D

Vet tape is one of the best inventions ever. I use it all the time, on critters and kinfolk alike. There's so many fanstic patterns and colours, you can be super fashionable! I'm just so happy you're mending so quickly. That'll be the best gift for Eevee for the holidays!

It makes me sad to hear so many stories about families fracturing apart. I have some relatives I'm not as keen on, but for all the bad spots in the road, I'll have have my siblings I hope. Or my sisters at least. They're family and best friends rolled into one. I'm really lucky to have them, and I know it. I just hope I show them enough. After losing my husband, my parents and two brothers, I think I've become painfully aware of just how brief our time here is. Best to get along if you can, and if not... find better people to have in your life. Adopted kin are just as fabulous as blood kin if not moreso! Because you're stuck with biological family, but you pick your chosen kin.

That's what I like about the board! We all just fell together like a deck of cards being shuffled and made a little family!

I'm really sad to hear about how your brother is acting, Lady Arachnia. Money does weird things to people. I'd rather be poor and happy than rich and miserable. He might find that ill gotten gain will bring him nothing but sorrows.

The only new hallucination I have had since the surgery is a rather ornery elderly woman. She's fairly quiet. So I'm hoping it's just a little of her, making me stronger.

Only you would ask such a thing in hopes of boosting your powers. :lolpony:
