Photos: some of Vogon's injuries.

Here are photos of some of his injuries; there are also bruises on his left shoulder and arm.

The head lac, with a ruler for scale. The scarring below it and the little question mark-shaped hairless patch are from his 31 May 2005 head injury.

That upper bruise on his left temple protrudes like there's a small gumball or jawbreaker under his skin.

Here's the bridge of nose laceration, again with a ruler for scale.

His neck has gotten progessively stiffer throughout the afternoon and evening to the point where he has significant difficulty turning his head. I did some trigger point massage on him just before 3 PM and point 21 on his back, a few finger widths in and below the shoulderblades, was knotted like you wouldn't believe. He finally agreed to let me "wire him up" [put electrodes on him for the TENS machine] a little while ago and he was making little pleasurable moaning sounds when I left him set up at a therapeutic intensity level for an hour with headphones on to Sonique's Hear My Cry in my Discman.

*smiles grimly* If there's one subject I know deeply enough to help him feel better, it's acupressure and trigger points. It had to be good for something someday.
