Went in today to have the cyst in my neck removed. The surgeon, after I was already there and changed, said he wanted to send me for an ultrasound instead of doing the surgery, but I told him I wanted it done today. So, they froze me up and got to work. An hour later and I was all done. I now have a new scar tacked on to the old one. I'm on two kinds of antibiotics, which are HUGE, and painkillers and I go back in 10 days to have the stitches taken out.

The surgery itself went fine. They burned out a lot of it though, and I really could have gone my whole life without knowing what my own flesh burning smells like. For the record, not good. It was also really weird to be awake while everything was going on, since I could hear it and feel pressure and tugging, especially when they were closing me up.

Right now I look like I was attacked by a vampire, since I have bandages on the side of my neck, and the freezing is starting to wear off so the pain's kicking in, but at least it's finally done. Hopefully this is the last time.

EDIT: Ewwwwwwwwww! Dried blood in my hair! Why do these surgeons never clean up after themselves? Last time I spent two days with half my face caked in blood before I went home and finally saw a mirror. At least this time I wasn't wandering around the hospital looking like something out of a horror movie. Just the entire back of my neck covered in dried blood. Once again, ewwwwww!

Also, the lightning storm going on right now is really pretty!
