Ok, so it looks similar, but it’s different. It’s not a cherry hemangioma that I had on my finger. It’s a pyogenic granuloma. A rather vicious form of "blood tumor" as the Chinese doctor called it. It’s like a hemangioma wart. Eeew. First they tried freezing it off. Didn’t work. 😦 Then they burned it off after injecting asnesthetic. I’m glad I didn’t eat breakfast this morning before I went. I have two things to say about this: That’s gonna hurt, and that’s gonna leave a mark. I hope it doesn’t come back. I have some special Chinese medicine (zi zhu or folium callivarpae nudiflorae, Japanese Beauty-Berry) that should help prevent it’s return. Total cost for consultation, treatment(s), and medicine: $18 U.S. dollars.
Hope it heals quickly, and doesn’t come back. That doesn’t sound fun at all. Erin and Spencer and their kids are now together in Hawaii. I no longer have any grandkids close. *sob* Robert and his wife are expecting in spring. It feels weird to be starting all over again. lol Give Brad our best!
