Yesterday we mourned the loss of a dear friend and confidant. Some may call it a cyst; I called it Violet, K’s undeveloped twin. K had it (her) removed from her neck yesterday. Of course I had to go to the appointment with her. I had to see it come off. Unfortunately the doctor said, “I’d invite you to stand over here and watch but it may be messy when I cut it”.
It took all of five minutes and the marble sized cyst was taken out. No more Violet. While K wanted to throw a party for our loss, I was busy asking myself ‘who will I cuddle with once K has drifted off to sleep?’
