Doctor's appointment Wednesday

It was her first available. Sometimes I can get in right away, and that's what I was hoping for but it didn't happen. Whatever this thing is, it's getting more and more painful. Bigger, too. Now it's red with bruising around the perimeter. I'm hoping whatever it is, she can make the pain go away quickly.

I don't really know what kind it was, except for painful! I've just been lying on the couch and it actually doesn't hurt unless I move just right. Sleeping tonight might be different, though. She did use more than just a syringe. She started with what was supposed to be a numbing agent (I swear it was saline), and just that part hurt because she had to squeeze to find the right spot. Then she squeezed the pus out of the hole made by the syringe. At one point she asked the nurse to get her a cup to squeeze it into. Then once that wasn't working anymore, she cut it open a bit and squeezed some more. Then she squirted peroxide inside it to clean it out. Twice. That hurt, too. Then she covered it up and sent me on my way. It does hurt to touch it, but it's much better than before. It hurt just to move before!

I'm glad it turned out not to be something medically serious, but it doesn't sound like a fun treatment.  I hope this is the last one you'll ever have.
