Scalped!

August 14, 2013 @ 12:02pm

Yesterday morning I had an appointment with a surgeon to check out a lump on the top of my head. For some reason I figured the doctor would inspect me and then schedule its removal for a later date. So I was in a bit of shock when he wheeled over a tray of tools, had me change into a hospital gown and started cutting my hair.

He said he's 99% sure that it was just a harmless sebaceous cyst, but they'll biopsy it just to be sure.

When I got home, my 7-year-old was eager to check out my new bald spot and stitches. After checking them out, he told me I should wear a hat so I don't scare his brother and sister.

Update: It was harmless. I'm all good. Thanks.
