I went to the dermatologist this morning. I have been having trouble the last year with these recurring warts on my hands.(I know not the most exciting of blog fodder, but hang with me!) I swear it is up to about 15, one huge one and a family of little ones. They are so embarrassing and they do hurt when you bang them. But most of all is the embarrassing grossness of them.(Is grossness a word?) And with K's wedding the summer and me being a bride's maid, I want them gone. So I go see the dermatology nurse-practitioner, nice guy, and he says the only way to get rid of them for good is to freeze them off with liquid nitrogen every three weeks until they are gone. OK. So I say, do it. Well my hands are in pain now. The little ones are already blistering and yucky , and the big one looks about the same but hurts like hell. I think he also froze half the good tissue around one. I thought my hands looked bad before, now it's worse! I need gloves like they wore in the old days. People are going to think I have leprosy! I am so glad I am not working this week. ouch...don't want to go there!
