The winner of the Guess What contest is none other than one of my favorite bloggerino's Toni.
Toni, you win a virtual bouquet of flowers given to me by my blogging friend and neighbor Kathryn.
The picture was a portion of a beautiful 1929 dining room chair and table set.
cyberchondriac (sy.bur.KAWN.dree.ak) n. A person who imagines they can diagnose diseases because symptoms match those on an Internet site.I think that's me.
Last Friday afternoon we were reading Frosty The Snowman for the 50th time (that week) when I found a hard lump the size of an Easter egg on my dog's leg.
I felt the lump over and over and over. And over again.
By Friday evening, after much consultation with Dr. Google, I was certain my dog had cancer and his leg would be amputated. I even found a dog prosthesis.
5 long, fearful days and a vet aspiration appointment later we found out it was a Limpoma (a fatty non-cancerous tumor).
I think a series of unfortunate events in my past coupled with my field of study (computer science; which forces to you to program code for all scenarios including, above all, the worst-case scenario) has made me paranoid.
Self: STOP IT. Step away from Dr. Google.
