Added later: I got all caught up in the "friend" drama and forgot to tell you what the "friend" actually was:)
They're pretty sure it's just a cyst. It is being biopsied (sp) this week. The doctors say that it is fairly common and that it is most likely nothing. The dermatologist was surprised with it's size once she got in there, though. She initially thought that it would require a stitch or two. Sydney wound up with 9 stitches...3 on the bottom- 6 on the top.
I'll keep you informed.
Oh, and I normally cannot handle things like this (I pass out easily), but for some unknown reason, it didn't bother me. Maybe I should think about a career in medical photography;)
Warning: Graphic photos ahead...
Today, Sydney had to say goodbye to a "friend".
She's had this "friend" for the past couple of years.
This "friend" just kind of appeared out of nowhere.
While Syd did not mind this "friend", she found this "friend" a little annoying at times.
But, she tolerated this "friend".
Her other friends did not understand this "friend".
I think this "friend" made them a little uncomfortable.
To tell you the truth, I had mixed feelings about this "friend".
I mean, this "friend" seemed harmless enough, but I erred on the side of caution and had this "friend" checked out.
It was decided that, while this "friend" was not dangerous, it was time for this "friend" to go.
Sometimes it's hard to say goodbye to a "friend", but this particular "friend" had worn out it's welcome.
This afternoon we had to literally cut this "friend" out of our lives.
