Well I just got back from my doctor. I’d rescheduled my Monday appointment for today, figuring I’m off work anyways, might as well get it over with. News I really wanted before the weekend, let me tell you…
The little Smarties-sized bump behind my ear is just a cyst. Nothing to worry about.
The little hard dot on my skin is a benign tumor. When I asked how he knew it was benign he said “that’s what I went to medical school to find out”. Encouraging.
And for a grand finale, the reason my wrists have been hurting with little electric shocks, the reason my fingers are numb in the morning: I have carpal tunnel syndrome.
What a great thing to tell an avid computer geek/knitter right before her birthday.
