Pyogenic Granuloma

Just for fun, thought I'd grow a weird thing on my face... but it kept growing and growing...  scared the crap out of me.  It looked like a blood blister, for lack of a better term.  I went to the doctor, who then sent me to another doctor, who specialized in lasers... who then sent me to a plastic surgeon.  Soooo, today I had it removed.  Yippee!  (I was getting really tired of sporting a band-aid to hide the hideousness)  Nothing like having a needle jammed into your cheek in twenty different spots to numb it.  Ouch!

I'm kind of missing having insurance, but it's a small price to pay for being my own boss.  The surgeon is an amazingly great doctor and so kind.  He really went out of the way to help me and kept the cost down.  I'm now sporting a red gash (several inches long), that is stitched up rather nicely.  I'm hoping for very little scarring.  I'm thankful that it appears to be something benign.  The rate of growth was astounding.  I'm supposed to take it easy for a couple of weeks and no heavy lifting for three weeks.  A little difficult considering I started a new business, but luckily I have an amazing family that will help me when needed.

I've missed you, my blog friends.  Hope you're all well.  Would love to hear from you!

Not my face, but an example.  Mine got bigger.

There's No Gym...

 As promised, I'm sharing a little update on the progress of the new business.  I'm offering a drop-off laundry service aimed at the soldiers of Camp Atterbury.  Right now, I've finished painting my office and I'm working on the desk.  The phone and internet are hooked up and I'm open for business.The building itself is still an ongoing project.  My motto for the laundry service is "We do it so you don't have to!"

 My plan is to eventually add a couple of tanning beds to the mix.  I am going to continue offering spray tans, I've just decided gas is too expensive to continue with the mobile tans.

Besides the fact that I'm going to practically be living here until I get it off the ground, the positives totally outweigh the negatives.  I'm a very happy girl!
