us & mom went to the beach again yesterday! the water was like bathwater in by the shore. it was SO TOTALLY MUCH better than friday when there was an east wind. we had a great time.....but i ended up REALLY sunburned.

also dad FINALLY agreed on a laptop to buy. *grin* it was one that we saw monday and somehow bought tuesday night. it's super new and it only had good reviews and it had external reviews too. this is the one!

hooray!

the fingernail stripe is (was?? i dunno if any of it's left) NOT malignant!!! *grin*

had my post-op checkup at 8:15am this morning. doc was late tho so i got out at 9:20am. anyways, he was really nice and i didn't even hafta pay. the last segment of my little finger is wrapped in a band-aid and some more stick-to-itself tape but i'm allowed to get it wet. FINALLY! i'm gonna keep it wrapped up like that awhile. according to the doc, the new nail might come in in 2 weeks or 2 months and it prolly won't look normal till about 4 months.....not that i really care what it looks like.

yay!

so i had my surgery yesterday. it went well. it took a long time cuz the painkiller shots didn't work as fast or as well for me, so they had to wait. then afterward me & body-dad had cheeseburgers and fries. (woot! after not eating/drinking from 9am i was SO hungry!)

they gave me acetaminophen w/ codeine script, but my fingers were numb till i went to bed @ midnight. the pain only started this morning and 1 pill of plain ibuprofen did just fine. the bandage is slowly becoming dark with blood tho which can't be a good sign!

um....i don't think i can write and typing is uncomfortable. mostly what i wanna do is sit under a blanket and rest my hurting hand on my other shoulder while i read. i WILL study for my midterm today, but prolly not do any other homework. *sigh*

time to rest my hand again. *waves to friends*

waiting

gotta wait for the scheduler to call to tell me my surgery date/time. apparently this is gonna be monday, not wednesday or thursday like the doctor said. grr. anyways the schedulers are 'frantically working' to fit everybody in, which i'm SURE means it's gonna be FOREVER before i get my turn. i KNOW i'm impatient, but i HATE waiting this long for ANYTHING.

tomorrow is the consultation appt with the hand surgeon. i'm gonna take the bus down there early, which means i'll have time for a bacon CHEESEBURGER and fries. *grin* they better not run out before i get there!

i keep forgetting this whole thing is to test if i have melanoma. it's like i see it as working toward the procedure the doc's gonna do (SOMEDAY darnit!) and the rest is just....i dunno....insignificant. i guess maybe it's better that way, not worrying when the dermatologist said it's unlikely it's cancer.

i'll have a better idea of what's ultimately gonna happen tomorrow afternoon.

ugh

turns out the appt with the surgeon is just gonna be a CONSULTATION. wth?! we're pissed. that's like FOREVER to wait for some guy to 'look it over' and 'discuss the options'! srsly there ARE NO options. it's just ONE little procedure. grah!

in other news, we're considering starting a group journal on DW. i dunno if we will but it'd be kinda nice to have a central space PLUS our separate journals. ^merrick's mainly the one for it cuz she has a journal on LJ and doesn't wanna keep a new journal on DW alone (she's actually GOT one at [personal profile] with , just doesn't wanna use it).

anyways, life's not bad. i should be letting ^kv do programming logic homework now, but we'll make time for that tomorrow. ha.

we got an appt with a hand surgeon on 22 feb to get our pinkie fingernail lifted up to get a sample of the beginning of the pigmentation stripe cuz the lunula isn't visible enough to get it any other way. the surgery is gonna be minor but it's kinda yucky to describe so i won't go into any more detail right here. they'll get a biopsy of the sample taken to test for melanoma. the dermatologist says it's highly unlikely it'll be cancer but it's better safe than sorry.

i've GOTTA come up with SOMETHING to do out of the house tomorrow. grah! i swear i'd rather take the bus downtown to the hospital lab and have them draw my blood than stay at home any longer. it's something that needs doing this week or next. the hospital has these awesome bacon-&-cheese burgers for lunch. then i can go to the library afterward. so yea. if i catch this bug going around the family, i'm gonna be SERIOUSLY pissed.

so it turns out ^merrick's better at controlling the body's blood sugar than me. i thought 'i'll take another sip of limeade while i wait for ^merrick to make dinner' and i keep my blood sugar up, but it keeps crashing back down, up&down, up&down, over and over till ^merrick is finally like: 'have some peanuts you fool!'

yea. so. peanuts. that helps, but it isn't till ^merrick comes fully back to the front that the blood sugar feels stable. i dunno. maybe it's a plural thing that i've got trouble maintaining the blood sugar irrespective of what i try.
