My little family is broken up. But it was a good break up and I am glad to see them go. You see I had a family of pilar cysts on my scalp and Thursday was the day that the dermatologist relieved me of my familial association with these guys. It was a good break up.
Sometimes we want to pass things on to our children and I am glad that our boys got some really amazing traits from Mr. Diamond. I am not so sure I passed along great traits because unfortunately they both inherited my cysts and headaches. If I could have prevented that I would have. But I guess they got the worst parts of me and the best parts of their dad.
So if you have never heard of pilar cysts they are common cysts that form from a hair follicle. They are usually found on the scalp like mine. The cysts are smooth, mobile and filled with keratin. Weird, huh? I had some removed over 20 years ago and the ones I just had removed had gotten big enough that they were bothering me so off they went.
I have a really great dermatologist and he was amused when I initially introduced him to Grandpa and Mom and Dad and Baby at my consult. I am sure he won’t forget me because even though I did not give them actual names I did give them family status. I think it just makes life more fun if you approach things a little bit more light hearted, don’t you?
I also realized that I have had more stitches in Transylvania County than I have had in any other county I have lived in. So what does that mean? As always, It’s Just Life. Enjoy it. One day at a time.

Hey, I have to pay for keratin for my hair!
I thought of you when I looked that up! I could have asked him to save it and bottle it for you. 🙂 Ooh gross.
Who knew! You’re too funny!
I am something alright! 🙂
Well, congratulations on your loss! (Hahahaha HA ha, I got to say it first. Finally!)
Thanks, Priscilla. ????
Thanks for sparing everyone except me the gory photo;)
I know. I only shared that with family. ????
My wife, Nichole has some similar thing in her hair that she is getting removed in the near future… Huh, maybe it’s not as rare as I originally was led to believe. Live and learn.
We are twins!!!! ????. I can give her tips!!!
I’m so glad I’m not the only one with skin problems 🙂 …its just life 🙂 Glad you got them taken care of!
Oh yea- these little (big) guys were annoying me and now that my head is all stitched up and healing I am happy to move on to the next chapter without them. 🙂
