christmas surprise!

So, I'm back from the emergency room. (around 2:00pm today) The reason I've been unusually silent since I've gotten home is that I've been trying to "walk off" an infected pilonidal cyst and I was in my own little world of pain the whole time. I'll be fine, likely. I have some antibiotics and some great painkillers. Much better than that do-nothing ibuprofin! I'll be going back to the hospital for a checkup in 2 days. At some point soon, I have to decide whether to get surgery and have it removed, since it could recur. I have to say that this is the last thing I expected to happen over my winter break. But I'm feeling so much better now that it's been treated. Maybe later, I'll post all the gruesome details.

Yeeks! Sorry to hear about the emergency room visit... but happy to hear you're feeling better : )

Please continue to do so (feel better; not visit the emergency room).

Thank you! The Doctor said it was likely to be better in time for christmas, and that would be just great for me :)

Aww, thanks. We still need to do something, just at a time when I can sit down without the aid of codine.

Heh, I actually do have a few blurry pictures I took while it was happening, so I could try to understand what was going on. It's hard to take a picture of your own butt, mind you :P

I've been there. It sucks. I had surgery to remove it. It was...rather unpleasant. If you want to hear all the gruesome details, IM me or something.

Argh, that's horrible! What incidentally is a pilonide?

I think it's when hairs get embedded in the skin and then get infected... or something. It's painful :P

Glad you're okay.

Get them to save some pudding for you if you can't manage it on Tuesday. :)
