If you are easily nauseated or disgusted you may want to scan down a bit and read one of my other posts. You've been warned.
I recently went to the doctor for my annual visit (always fun) and pointed out to her this thing on my leg. It was just a little bump - it's been there for years, and I've always meant to point it out to one of my various doctors over the years but this was the time I did it. She said that even though she didn't think it was anything to worry about she would like to remove it and have a biopsy done just to be on the safe side.
So that is what I did, and now I have this lovely... hole in my skin on my upper thigh. It is really disgusting. It looks like a crater. Gabriella saw it and then told Spiral "Mommy has a rip on her leg!" I'm to keep it covered and not get it wet until it scabs over and looks more... normal, I guess. I'm going through a lot of Band-Aids. It doesn't really hurt, although my pants irritate it, so I have a great excuse to wear my flannel pajama pants all day long.
I neglected to ask how long it would take for it to become normal. Right now it's full of pus. It doesn't look or feel infected. Spiral says this is "good pus", whatever that means.
I am now taking donations for my artificial leg, just incase. If you are interested in contributing, e-mail me.
