Photos & my lungs

Picture A Day is updated. Huzzah.

Photo journal (April) also updated. I took a bunch of photos at the park where we stopped after my doctor’s appointment this afternoon.

As for the doctor’s appointment: as long as I keep getting better, slowly, then all is good. If, however, it comes back or gets worse, then I have to go back in immediately. If it does come back, then it might be some sort of blood clot in my lungs (not good.) As such, I’m going to keep a close eye on how I’m feeling and figure it out from there. Apparently the blood clotting thing happens sometimes to women on birth control pills (which I have been for 12 years now.)

He’s also going to cut the lump out of my forehead that’s been there for years and years. It occasionally starts to hurt and get tender and the like, and he tells me it’s a kind of cyst. If it ever gets infected, it will abcess, and that will be very painful (considering it’s in the middle of my forehead, just above the hairline, that would really suck.)

And so, next week I go in to get it sliced out of me. I’ll get stitches and everything.

There go my dreams of growing a unicorn horn.

    Yes – you get better!

    I had a cyst on my foot.. for years.. and the doctors said nothing, and didn’t offer to cut it out for me.. so last fall I performed an act of self mutilation and cut it out myself. (no stitches). Yes, I’m odd.

    But – the Cyst hasn’t come back, and I’m healed. heh.

    I’m just glad a horn didn’t start growing out of my foot….

      😉 I just asked the guy. I’ve been going to doctors for many years with this thing under my hair on my forehead, and never actually asked about it. Finally did.

      I have previously tried to pick at it until it bled and have had to fight the urge to cut it out of my head with a sharp knife, so I know where you’re coming from.
