The word of the day is: Pilomatrixoma.
otherwise known as what that strange lump on my leg was. No matter that kids are the ones who usually get them or that they're usually not on one's leg. Or that Wedmd didn't have ANYTHING on it. Yeesh. Oh well, it was benign. Yay.
I've got a nifty scar there now. The stitches came out yesterday and everything looks fine, though the doctor said there's a bit more puckering of the skin than she'd hoped for. Oh well. Doesn't bother me.
