Fun With Scissors

A few weeks ago I had a mole removed from my arm. This is mostly notable because it got me out of having to carry boxes on shipment night at the Beauty Emporium where I work. Every Thursday I do a 3 pm to Midnight shift, because we unpack and put away each week’s shipment after the store closes at 9 pm. I’m not exactly sure how I ended up on the shipment crew, but I started pulling that shift in February and have only missed one or two nights since then. Before we can unpack the shipment, all the boxes (usually 30-40 heavy ones) have to be carried out from the stockroom to the floor – it’s hard work. I have to say I wasn’t sorry that I got out of it for two shipment nights.

I was supposed to have the stitches removed last Wednesday. Oops, I missed the appointment. After consulting the Internet (I know, one probably shouldn’t take medical advice from the Internet…) I decided DH and I could remove the stitches ourselves. One pair of needlenose pliers, a scissors, and a tweezers later, the stitches were gone and I have a happily healing arm. Note to self: removing stitches is easy. The spot on my arm is still a little sore and the scar is kind of ugly, but I’m applying the same wrinkle-cream to it that I used on my forehead so it’ll probably fade quickly. Oh, and sunscreen. Must remember to apply sunscreen.

My doctor hasn’t called to tell me the mole was cancerous, so I’m assuming all is well. It was kind of cool watching her remove it though… I’ve come a long way, being able to watch. I’m usually much too squeamish, but curiousity overwhelmed me once the spot was numbed. Watching her stitch it was the best part – it looks just like sewing! At any rate, I’m glad to have it all done with and on it’s way to becoming a faded spot on my arm.
