[navel:] 12: I did not meddle with my navel for above a week, but the lint stuck in it, I perceive it is not best to let the lint stick in it, but wash it out, of this I found it was somewhat sore, whereupon I washed it as formerly, it savoured very much was full of white stuff; it looked a little red and open. I think yet that it was not raw it continued well above 8 weeks through gods mercy unto me and I hope in god he will command his blessing on me therein
