Today I am sitting at home with my leg elevated instead of going to work. I had (what the doctor thinks was) a congenital nevus removed from the back of my left calf yesterday. It actually wasn't as bad as I thought and I hadn't planned on staying home today, but now it is pretty ugly and every time I walk it oozes with a bloody liquid. Yuck. You may want to look away at this point, because here is a picture:
In other news, Tom is still sick though he appears to be recovering. He went to the student health center on Monday thinking that he had strep and that he would feel better once he got some antibiotics, but his strep test was negative so now he's waiting out what is probably a virus. The doctor said it could be mono or some other virus, so we're just hoping for some other virus. I had mono a couple years ago and I did not enjoy the experience. Despite the fact that he's not feeling well, Tom has been going to work every day and I am really proud of him.

Actually, he just called me to tell me that he went to lunch at The Polo Lounge at The Beverly Hills Hotel and he saw Jake Gyllenhall and Maria Shriver. Every day so far he has been going to lunch with one or two attorneys from the firm so he has gotten to eat all kinds of interesting things. He even has his own office :) I'll try to convince him to make a post about his experiences at the firm.

Hey, Erica and Tom . Hope you both feeling better! What did the doctor say about your leg, Erica? And did you get Tom's results back yet?

Keep us posted!

I won't get the biopsy results from my leg back until next week. Tom didn't have a blood test (we went to the student health center and the lab was closed by the time his appointment was over) but he is getting better. He's not 100% yet, but he should be in the next few days.

Rough week for the Jackmans but apparently not much slows you down. Looks like you had a good time with your family.
