in medical terms

oh hey.
so I have this thing. it's weird. It first showed up a little over three years ago. Recently, it came back with a vengeance, and was all inflamed, causing my to feel like I was running a near-constant fever for about two weeks straight. This was coupled with a whole lot of pain in my neck meats.


Anyways. I'm headed to the doc this afternoon for a lil consultation to see what can be done about it. In the meantime, I thought it'd be nice to share my adventured with you. Sorry if it grosses you out. This might be fun, though.

So to start things off, here's a straight shot of the little frenemy that is building on the neck-region. See? It looks like a lump of hotness on my throat:

Next up, a zoomed-in view, just to be sure that we all know where, exactly, we're looking. yep. that's it. Right smack in the middle of my hyper-ticklish neck.

To make this feel more medical-y, I thought an X-ray would be nice.

And just in case, a thermal scan might be useful too. Looks like a blue boob growing on my throat. Cute!

Now I want you to just envision it in the clouds. Can you see it?

And what if I were "abducted by aliens", you ask? Wonder no more, dear reader:

The little guy has already seen Paris:

 Maybe it can visit Maui next?

I tried and tried to get it onto a rollercoaster and even the moon, but the stubborn little guy was too scared, and I ended up looking mostly dead (but with a lady-Adam's apple). such is life, I guess.

I am nervous about this whole situation... because the surgery requires a hospital stay and some intense anesthesia. Oh yeah... and a scar. Too bad I'm not really that in to scars. I get rather squeamish and nervous about medical stuff so... wish me luck. Or send me cookies. 

Or both? Yeah. Definitely both.

Oh no! Let me know what I can do to help - I can definitely help take care of you while in hospital if needed. Surgery is the worst.
