morrow morning, before the butt crack of dawn, I will have my twin removed from my left wrist. It will be bitter sweet as I will not get near the attention I have been getting since it started getting bigger several months ago.

Say goodbye to my little lump because the next time you see me, I'll have a big splint that will go from my hand to my elbow and I will have to learn to do everything with only one hand like I did when I had a baby on my hip 24 hours a day. But the lump will be gone. Hallelujah!


Here's a little tribute to my soon-to-be-absent friend...

Who knows, I might get even more attention walking around with that big splint. If things go well, I just might wear it an extra week!

I wish I didn't have a million things to do. I'd come and take care of you. Make you soup, do your laundry and your dishes, tuck the kiddos in bed, bake an apple pie for E...
Get well my daughter.
Love, Mom

Oh Pam, that looks aweful! I don't think mine ever looked like that. But, then again, it has been about 21 years since I had mine removed! You'll do fine. Did you decide to do a block or not? I'll check in tomorrow evening. Love you.

Your Sis

your humor inspires me. Dark side of the cyst was my favorite.

You are too much Pam!

I'm glad for you that the twin will be gone.

If it makes you feel any better...Randy hadn't noticed it. Even with all that time you two spent in the photo booth together and he still didn't notice it.

I love you!

Dr. Hendrix did it and it was a cake walk in the park. I didn't feel a thing.

I got to see the thing in a jar afterwards, too! It was cool! Elliott got a little woozy for that part. Poor boy.

That second picture is making me want to faint dead away. Good grief.

Yeah, I never did like profile shots.
