So that birthmark that I have near my left eye? Turns out it's a mole. A mole I have wanted to get rid of for the past year. For reasons that I will not share, I have finally started the process of getting it removed! Friday I went in for surgery and was totally fine afterward even with the anesthesia coursing through my veins. I was even able to take the subway home. This Friday I go in again to get the second part of it removed, and then I imagine I'll go back in another week to get the stiches out. It will be interesting not to have it on my face anymore. I can't remember a time when it wasn't there. As my friend Dawn said, "It will be a whole new you!"
My tailbone is feeling better but still sore. I take tylenol everyday. :)
