12:39 am: Good News for Loki!

The vet called me today and told me that both the existing shoulder lump and the new jaw lump are benign basal cell cysts! She said if he gets anesthetized for something, I should see if they have time, etc., to take these off, but there isn't any reason to take them off now. I need to watch them and him and if anything odd happens, I should bring him back.

I had another strange change that I forgot to post yesterday -- while I was in the bathroom on Friday, looking in the mirror closely, I saw what looked like a hair that was both silver and brown. I carefully pulled it out to see if I was right, and it was even more strange -- the brown was in the middle and the silver was at both ends!

good news indeed!

I have hairs like that. They change back and forth from brown to grey. I thought that wasn't supposed to happen, but it happens a lot with my hair.
I just wish more of it would stay on my head, adn that the follicles would stop being lazy. I had such thick hair when I was young.

Thanks! Yeah, I've never had my hair change in the middle like that!

More proof for the theory that reality is Just Plain Weird.

Yay Loki! I'm so glad to hear this.

I also have hairs like that. I always wonder if it's like the rings of a tree, that they are white when I'm stressed and go red again when things are easier. But that's probably not it.

That is, I know tree rings don't change color in response to stress -- I was thinking of how they are different during a drought.

Oh, I thought of that -- I'm having trouble eating -- but it would have to be only one end to match that.

I have hairs like that too! I think the pigmentation-producing cells don't deactivate all at once - sometimes they turn on and off a few times before they're done for good.

I'd never heard of that before!
