The missing twin (teratoma) 2 by drew1472
The missing twin (teratoma) 2
On March 7th this was removed from my stomach. It was an ovarian teratoma that was found on accident and then removed in the days following its discovery.
So I had been getting sick a lot and had to keep going back to the doctor, and one of the last times I went the doctor said I possibly had mono. The doctor had me lay down and saw my stomach was swollen and hard (it had been like this for a long while and I thought it was normal), which was surprising since I looked pretty thin and only weighed 140pounds and I didnt look like anything was in there. But after they discovered this I was sent for an ultrasound to see if my spleen was enlarged, which is a side effect of mono. The ultrasound showed I had fluid in my stomach and two day later I had to go for an MRI so they could discover the source of the fluid. They said they would call with the results in three days, but the next day after I came home from school my mother came home early and told me I was having sugery the next day on the 7th. To everyones surprise I didn't freak out or even worry, I was too busy making jokes about eating my twin  I could not resist. 
But this picture is what they removed from my stomach,  it weighed 25lbs and after the sugery I was super thin and only had one ovary (not that I minded, shorter periods yay!!). Yes it was taken during the sugery, because I asked the sugeon if he coukd take a picture since they wouldnt let me see it in person, or keep it (I asked).
This is the 2nd picture I have of it,  it offers a different angle.

Hey guys, gals, aliens, cats on the keyboard,  and etc!!!

Well to start off its been forever, literally like a year but still. On a good note I have gained access to DA through a samsung tablet, however on a bad note I am still computerless and  therefore unable to post anything but journals. 
When I first logged in I was like "whoa that is a lot of notification thingys." 
I do have hope that soon I'll be able to start putting art up again, either with getting a job (I'm searching) or gaining access on someone else's (Maybe the boyfriend). I just really hope I will be able to start coming on more and posting again, because from what I remember this site is awesome and filled with like-minded people (slightly insane like myself), plus I absolutely loved sharing my artwork and gaining criticism from various people.
Now for an update on me:
On Febuary 7th I actually acquired a boyfriend, who has a similar mindset as me and is very open minded. 
On March 7th I had surgery which removed a 25lb ovarian teratoma from my stomach. This thing was a little bigger than a basketball and had pushed my organs up and to the side. Surprisingly it was actually discovered on accident (when I have access to a computer I'll submit the story and pictures!). For those of you wondering a teratoma is a tumor and is also referred to as the "missing twin," and I basically absorbed it at some point in the womb (lol I have made so many jokes about eating my twin).
On April 26th  I went to prom :3 it was very enjoyable. 
Last month I cut my hair short and dyed it blonde XD its looks pretty good actually.
Also I've gotten into Attack on Titan,  plus I got the boyfriend into it, which is a gigantic bonus. Oh and I got him into Doctor Who!!! So just wins all around for me this year so far.
Not to mention I am totally excited to begin my senior year of high school with the class of 2015!

I hope everyone reading this is faring well, and I will be on more frequently (data allowing I am on a tablet after all).

With tons of love, Madonna out!

I currently reside in the darkest part of all shadows, waiting, watching and chuckling when no one is listening.
I hunt aliens in my free time and stare at Johnny Depp.
I enjoy swords and weapons of all types and caliber.
Slowly but surely I am making a comeback into art, as I begin to take over the world with creativity and knowledge!!!
