just what the doctor ordered

I went to the doctor for the first time in approximately 10 years. I got sick in Kenya and thought it'd be a good idea to rule out malaria. Plus I have a lump on my head that seems to be growing quite a bit over the past couple of years. Apparently those are good reasons to get checked out.

No malaria.

No concern with the bumps. Seems that some people get collections of liquidy stuff under their skin. It may keep growing, but its nothing to die from.

So no exciting medical drama. On the plus side, I got permission to wait 2 or 3 years for another check up. That's cool by me.

Essentially wasted $15 to get a clean bill of health...could've used that for golf or for a nice artery clogging steak. sigh.

Glad to hear the bumps are nothing to worry about and that you didn't/don't have malaria. Guess now you have NO excuses for sitting out of hide and seek :o)
