google it hot shot.


look at her elbow crease,
it's what i'm talking about;-)
the hot shot was wrong.
it wasn't pilomatricoma.
it doesn't need to be removed.
it will go away in 3 to 4 years.
victory never smelled so sweet.
yet when they told me it wasn't pilomatricoma i sat there feeling like i should be defending it.
like, "well, that's what hot shot said, are you sure it isn't? are you sure it's this new thing? are you sure it's going to go away?"
then i realized i was defending hot shot.
and probably insulting their experience, but i'm paying them whether i get my questions answered or not, so i might as well ask them.
so i said to myself, "self, this is your second opinion. listen to it."
ta-da.
big sigh of relief.
no surgery.
no under the knife.
goes away.
why am i defending pilomatricoma hot shot?
b/c it makes me wonder if anyone really knows anything.
it's not painful.
it's not bothering her.
this is good.
now i can go back to feeding my daughter fruits and veggies in the wrong order.
did i mention they gave me a paper with the name and said, "this is so you can google it."
but not in a snotty way.
plus, they introduced themselves (the intern and the doc)
AND
used my name,
AND
used the now 5 1/2 month old's name.
they had me at hello:-)
really though, i think i might just have to have "GOOGLE" tatooed across my forehead.
since it's already there and all.
by the way, her bumps are Juvenile Xanthogranuloma.
go ahead, google it;-)
...
p.s.
my pride almost left this part out.
her bumps have changed color in the last month.
when hot shot saw them they were white.
pilomatricoma white.
they are now yellow.
xanthogranuloma yellow.
still.
i don't like hot shot.

Call me snotty, but I woulda called hot shot and rubbed it in a little- or maybe just dreamed about what I'd say anyway

I think we all don't like hot shot. I'm glad Max doesn't have to have surgery, this must be a HUGE relief! Now you just need to find bows to match the bump until it goes away ;)

Yeah! So glad she doesn't need surgery! Good thing you didn't rush into having anything done. And yes it too makes me happy that hot shot was wrong.

What a relief to you! And the sweet victory of proving hot shot wrong as well. Great day for you, I am sure!
