I don’t think they’ve ruled out lupus…

My usually hairy leg now sports a great big shaved patch with a dirty great bandage in the middle, the site of yesterday’s biopsy – no, excavation – of one of the mole/wart/blob-looking things in residence thereon. It’s something that I have been meaning to get around to for, oh, about 5 years. It seems that finally the casual disregard for my own mortality of my youth is wearing off, thanks no doubt to Dad’s illness, stress-induced hypochondria and the timely prompting of the doctor at my last visit: “Is there anything else you were concerned about?” Oh, yeah, there’s that thing I’ve been meaning to ask about…

Testing will probably take a couple of weeks and there’s a very good chance that this will be the last I ever hear about it. The damned things have been there for at least 15 years that I can remember, and have never actually hurt or changed significantly or what have you. Still, better safe than sorry, yeah?

Besides, now instead of an unsightly sore, I now have a bare patch and (when the bandage comes off) an unsightly puncture scar. That’s  way cooler.
