I Have What?

I got up this morning and noticed some funny perfectly round circles (five of them) on my mid section. Mr. Google says that in all probability that it would be ring worm. Eeeeeee! Hyperventilation! After reading a little further I learned that it is NOT caused by a worm. Whew! After learning that I quickly got my breathing under control. Becky thinks I should post a picture of this, my latest strange malady. However, I am not convinced that all the whole big wide world world needs to see a photo of my mid section plus I think it would prove to be a difficult camera angle not to mention feel weird and a little creepy.

I had to run my mom in for more blood work and X-rays. My baby granddaughter was developing conjunctivitis so she needed to see a doctor as well, plus I had not gone in to do the blood work that my doctor ordered about a month ago and had told me to get on asap. Off we went. We got it all took care of. It was an amazing juggling act but feels so good to get it all out of the way.

When it was my turn at the minor emergency the doctor asked me if I was a farmer. "No" I said. He asked if I had been around any cattle. "No" I said. At that he was scratching his head. I don't know why but I find this hilarious. It does not take much to entertain me. Anyway, he said that it looks like ringworm but it is hard to say so I will be treated for that condition just in case. I am wondering that maybe it is a delayed reaction to the sticky electrodes that they stuck on me when I had the stress test last week? Anyway, he said that I would not be highly contagious so that is a good thing because I have been around all the grand kids and Lamosil is not really good for you.

After all that we went and had lunch and picked tiles for the bathtub surround. I found some fantastic splendid,stupendous ones.I can't express how jazzed I am! Super jazzed.

You're jazzed?

LOL. Also, I'm bummed that there's no picture. Definitely not jazzed about that.

It's just a fungal type infection. I think you should have posted the pics, hehe!
Glad you got all that stuff out of the way, though. I need to do that, too. I think my doctor sent me paper work almost two years ago. I put it on my 101 things list to do by LAST February and I still haven't gone.

I was supposed to go see a specialist about a lump they found on me a while back. I got an ultrasound, they said it was benign and so I never went. Five years ago.

Bah, who needs it? Hope the condition takes care of itself very quickly. I thought ringworms were worms too.
