Some bad news

Journal Entry: Fri Sep 7, 2012, 8:27 AM


I know I've been a little absent from my DA account, mostly due to being busy with my webcomic and goofing off on Tumblr. Hopefully I'll have more fancomics/fanart/original art to show you shortly.

That wasn't the bad news though. Last month I noticed a lump on the underside of my throat. When I went to the doctor, they told me I had strep throat and gave me antibiotics. The antibiotics took care of the strep but not the lump. I went to a specialist who then gave me stronger antibiotics, and when those didn't do anything, I went in for a CAT scan. Thankfully, all that was found was a benign lump, but the doctor wants to take it out, so I'm going to be having some minor surgery in the next couple of weeks. I've been told it's nothing serious, that I shouldn't even need to be in the hospital overnight, but it's still surgery. :P

I haven't scheduled the surgery yet, but it should be taking place within the month. I'll keep you guys informed. Hopefully, it'll all be over with shortly and I can get on with my normal life soon. :)

Lumps are always a scary thing to find and its a good thing you went to see a specialist about it :(
I'm happy to hear it isn't too serious though, hope you get better soon!

Thank you! The surgery is scheduled for Wednesday and the specialist reassured me it won't be bad so hopefully I'll recover quickly.

:hug: sorry to hear this.

Daft as it will sound - try not to stress yourself out too much (I said it was daft :O ) but do try, everything will go brilliant, over and done in a flash and you'll have a speedy recovery ^^
no need to worry ^^

I'm the same, nought to stressed in a fraction of a second lol Trying to change that though - best thing is to do things to help keep your mind off of it, do things that help you relax ^^

and no googling things about the op ect!
Relax ^^

Hahaha, you know me so well! XD I've been banned from WebMD by my husband because I automatically think I've got the worst case scenario for everything.

And thanks! Though I think work keeps me busy enough to not think about it. :)

Thank you! They think it's a swollen lymph node of some kind, so yes, at least it's not cancerous. :)
