As many of you know, I have a lump, which happen to be a cyst in the right side of my head. When I first knew about it, I was very hesitant to tell my family, even my in-laws. I know they’ll be so worried over something, which the doctor referred to as not urgent.
Of course I told hubby about it and he is much much worried than I am. A few days after, while eating dinner, he blurted the news to his parents. MIL instantly stood up from where she is, went to me and asked where it is. I forgot how I told my mom about it. I told my dad about it through a text message. The following weekend that we visited them, everyone is soooo worried as if I have a very serious illness. Last week was a very stressful week for me. My mom would text me almost every day to ask when do I plan to have the cyst remove. I got tired and finally decided to schedule the minor operation.
Last Saturday, hubby accompanied me to Borough Medical Institute. We left Ayex at home because we thought I’d be all sickly after the operation. I even had a list of things I’ll ask hubby to give me in my head. Hahahaha! A few minutes after arriving at the clinic, I was told to change clothes. Hubby went with me in the waiting area. After the procedure he told me that he was waiting for the nurse to also give him his scrub suits. He thought he’ll go inside with me during the operation. As if I’m undergoing a major operation like giving birth! Hahahaha!
The procedure started at 2PM. My surgeon had to shave a small circle (size of an old one peso coin) where the lump is to sterilize the area. After that, he started with the procedure. I was awake the whole time. I didn’t feel any pain. He told me before that this one is bloodier than when the lump is somewhere else like in my arms. I thought I’d see blood flowing. I was prepared for that but no, I didn’t see it. I only saw the blood when the assisting nurse put down the gauze he was using to wipe all the blood in my head. I would move my body a little from time to time because the rest of my body is already tired for lying straight. After a while, the surgeon said we’re done. He told me to head to his clinic for my prescription. As he helped me stood up, he held my head. He requested for an elastic bandage, which he used to hold the gauze on my bleeding wound. By 3PM, we’re already leaving Eastwood.
Hubby and I were both thankful that it’s finally over. Apart from the elastic bandage in me head, I look perfectly fine, as if nothing happen. We even went to SM North to have sapphire checked because her Wireless LAN won’t initiate. After an hour, sapphire is already ok, we went home. As expected my in-laws were also amazed that I am just fine after the operation. I just stayed inside the room and took care of Ayex when she asks for milk. By 8PM, I felt that the wound is hurting little by little. I thought that the anesthesia is already wearing off. So I took a nap and woke up a little past nine.
The following day, we went to church in the morning. I feel better this time. Instead of the elastic bandage, I used the gartered headband Therese gave me before. It did the trick and I seem so normal! By lunch time, we checked this house owned by a family friend. It was ok. It has a big garage. I didn’t like it very much because I think it’s quite far. What I liked about it most is the fact that the owner also sold with the house some appliances which includes: 5 air conditioners, an old sofa, a water heater and an Elba gas range. The gas range was the one that broke my heart. Hahahaha!
After the house trip, we went back home because our little girl was so sleepy. When she woke up, we left again to do the grocery. We went to bed early because the little girl was tired plus I have to rest as well. However, I discovered something really sad. When hubby reformatted sapphire, all the picture she has were lost even if he hadn’t reformatted our drive E, where all the files were. It’s so sad that it’s the first thing that I remembered when I woke up today.
