One health matter was taken care of today. I have, as my mother so eloquently put it, a critter in my cooter. Family Doc sent me to a Gyno. Gyno examined me and sent me for an ultrasound. The ultrasound was a wash - they couldn't find the critter. Gyno then sent me for a CT scan. CT scan was also a wash - they couldn't find the critter (but I did get to see the new hospital). Gyno is pissed off at ultrasound and CT people because the critter is right there (not to get overly graphic but you can see the thing if you're in the right place). Gyno says it's a cyst or blood tumour, most likely a cyst; neither of which do we need to worry about unless it becomes bothersome.

Now y'all know much more about my hooha than I ever thought I'd mention on the internet.

Never thought of 'em as "critters" but I've had several ovarian cysts over the years ... one the size of a small grapefruit (or a large orange, take your pick) that I had to have surgically removed. Unfortunately, it wasn't found until it was so intertwined with one of the ovaries that it (the ovary) had to be removed along with the dermoid cyst. Don't Google dermoid cyst unless you really want to be grossed out about critters in the girlie parts.

Please just make sure your dr is monitoring your critter closely so it doesn't become the size of a citrus fruit! (Also, never hesitate to share as much as you'd like about your hooha. We are here for you.)

wow, that was interesting in a warped sort of way. Glad you are ok. When I read critter, I thought baby!!!! Oops!

Good to see you posting even if it is about all that. :o)

No babies for me unless they're furry and have four legs.

And yes, I'll be keeping an ..er.. eye on the critter.

Hm, should I make this blog "All hooha, all the time"? Nahhh, I'm sure it's been done.
