Monday I had a test done. Tuesday I took a shower (yeah, I know. I usually wash thoroughly every day, but I took a day off) and noticed odd rings all over my upper self. I knew I had spots. Large purple ones. I thought I was going to scrub my skin off, to get myself clean.
Not only was the stress test a horrid memory (thank goodness for the doctor and the team with me, they were blessings!), I now have giant hickies and spots. I was moderately horrified by the large pink rings. I was more stressed when I got out of the shower and saw in the mirror I had scrubbed the WRONG place vigorously. I found a vivid purple dot hiding beneath one of my breasts. At least, I think it was the wrong place. Maybe I had more than two!
I understand why they are there. The rings are from the EKG sticky pads and the spots were from the ultrasound tech needing to mark where to take pictures. I didn't know how long they'd last and how hard they would be to remove. This information was not a part of the shared disclosures.
On the good side of the spots and circles coin, no one will see them. At least, I don't think anyone will! Wonder how long they will take to fade, anyway?
