4,18.18 Just Call Me Killmonger

Did y’all see Black Panther? Remember the cousin, Erik Killmonger, played by Michael B. Jordan? He had the raised scars all over?

Erik Killmonger : I don’t worry about no brand. Check these out. Each one is for a kill.

My scars didn’t come from kills, obviously, but i’m starting my own pattern of skin biopsy dots. I’d show you but it’s still icky. Monday I had a date with your favorite and mine, Nina the Great at UTSW. Apparently there are two ways to store skin biopsies: live cells and not live cells. Whichever one we did last time was wrong for what UCSF needed so we did another punch.

Also knocked out my 18 month appointment for the PGB Create Trial. Crazy that we’re this far along in that study. I was so excited to see Nina, and maybe still under the influence of the Taco and Tequila Festival, that I showed up in Dallas without wearing a bra – no bueno señor. Nina had to do the blood draw in office rather than sending me to the lab because it’s inappropriate to take your shirt off when you’re free hanging and thankfully she hit on the first stick, whoo hoo!

After this appointment we took this hot mess on the road and grabbed lunch before my next hot date with Dr. Riehs. I got a good gum report – which is huge because brushing is hard – got these babies scrubbed and polished and got to watch the Little Mermaid. Yes I’m 31 still going to a pediatric dentist, judge on playa

Dallas survived another visit from Sunny and my two favorite words are now: express lane.
