OK, so as I said not in my first blog Shawn had surgery to get a fatty tumor removed from the back of his neck. It looked like it was the size of a golf ball in there but the doctor showed it to me once it was removed (because my dear, sweet husband asked him to) and it wasn't quite that large. It also wasn't very round. The Dr. said that if you take a marble and stick it under a piece of saran wrap it still looks the size of a marble but if you put it under a rug it looks a lot bigger...therefore because Shawn's lump was deep in his neck it looked bigger.
Shawn is very sad that I didn't take a picture of the lump for him because he was still out when they sent it to the lab. But, there is no real cause for concern because the Dr. told us it is a less then 1% chance that it is something serious. Oh yeah, as for him not seeing it don't feel bad, because last night whilst cooking up some ground beef I fished the piece out of the pan that most closely resembled the size and shape of the lump for him.
So there you have it. He's doing well and feeling young and spry again.
