Update on the cyst situation...

A great big unfortunately, they didn't do surgery yesterday. The cyst on my neck was still too infected for the doctor to touch it/remove it. He said the chances of spreading the infection throughout my body was too great. :o
He said if he did it, I could easily end up in the ICU. That I definitely do not want. :o

So I opted to wait to have all three cysts removed at the same time.
Assuming the infection has cleared up enough, my next appointment is for Nov. 10th. That is the second day of my vacation and four days before I fly out to Las Vegas. Not ideal, but it was the first available date and I jumped on it.

Now if you guys can keep the juju flowing that this dang cyst will clear up so they can remove it, I would be forever indebted to you all.

Just asking for some good vibes for tomorrow.....

I am suppose to be getting three more cysts removed. But a couple of weeks ago, one of them got inflamed and I just finished a course of antibiotics. It is a lot better then it was, but...
I really hope the doctor doesn't look at it and say, Sorry I can't work on that yet.
I don't think it's worse then the big one that they removed from my back, so I hope he/she says it's okay.
These are cysts No 9,10, and 11. UGH.............

If the doctor says they can't do it tomorrow, I am thinking I will just tell them to wait on all three instead of paying for two procedures. Assuming they can get me in before the end of the year. :o :o :o

Once upon a time somebody asked me to show her proof that I could sew.
It's not anything special, but I did sew this, way back in 7th or 8th grade. :p

I finished up Book No. 22 last night at work.
No I didn't read a whole book that fast. I have been working on this book on my Nook for a few months now. I would occasionally read a few pages here and there.
I read "Fanged and Fabulous" by Michelle Rowen. It was the next book in the Alpha Immortals collection that I started a while back. They are just frivolous reads, but pass the time.
F and F was about a young lady who are recently been turned into a vampire. Some how or another she was mistaken to be the Slayer of Slayers, aka the person who can kill the people who kill vampires. Of course she is far from that.
Her boyfriend is a very "old" vampire who happens to be married and has a lot of hangups.
Her apartment gets bombed out, and she moves in with her BGF and a stray dog/werewolf. Boyfriend hires some bodyguards.
Some how or another she manages to stay alive and they beat the bad guy. lol...

I recently had my yearly physical.
It consisted of getting one vial of blood drawn from which they performed approximately 5-6 tests.
After that I saw my doctor and was examined, and I got 2 booster shots, and an appointment to see dermatology.

Wanna take a wild guess what the cost of that was before my insurance kicked in?

The bill for that was $1018.-- and some change.

And people wonder why some of us actually are pushing for healthcare reform in this country.

Bills for dermatology are yet to start rolling in.
I had the initial exam, and then I will be having office surgery on Oct. 20th to remove three more cysts.
