“A ganglion cyst, also known as a bible cyst, is a swelling that often appears on or around joints and tendons in the hand or foot. The size of the ganglion or cyst can vary over time. It is most frequently located around the dorsum of the wrist and on the fingers. The term “Bible bump” comes from a common treatment in the past that consisted of hitting the cyst with a Bible or another large book.”
Okay so if you know us, we love all things medical, aced anatomy, and are addicted to medical TV dramas. That being said, I am posting this mainly for us. Don’t be grossed out :)
Cam has had this huge cyst on his wrist for about a year now. Basically not even a problem, except now it started hurting and you pretty much need your wrist if you are going to be a dentist. So he decided to get it removed. He also decided he wanted to be awake to watch…. of course he did.
Anyways, all things aside the anesthesiologist said that it would make the healing process a lot longer and Cam wouldn’t be able to see much over the sterile field so Cam was put under general. But the awesome doctor said he would take some pictures since Cam was so sad. BAHAHAHA
I was rather disappointed that Cameron wasn’t super funny coming out of anesthesia. :( He was pretty much himself but talked a ton. He tried to see how low he could get his blood pressure and heart rate. It’s a thing with us since we are of the smaller build (no jokes please) and when I go under doctors think I’m dying because my blood pressure drops to the 40’s, so Cam decided to make it a competition. He lost :)

Anyways they removed this gnarly cyst and bandaged him all up for the next 10 days. He can do most anything and feels great, he just can only use one arm. Happy Valentine’s day to my adorable crippled husband!
