Since somewhere in the middle of my trip to California my lymph system on the right side of my neck and head has been swollen. On the head it has gotten so bad that it looks like I have hit my head hard on a rock in 4-5 different places resulting in bulging red marks that are really painful to the touch. Most likely this is a result that I have for the last 5 weeks or more had a cold that I don’t seem to get rid of fully. This cold started with fever when I was snowboarding in Shiga-kogen a while back.
Now I am back in Tokyo from my trip to California and my neck and head still hurts, but not as bad as during the trip. The coloring has gone down and it is not so swollen anymore. Hopefully it will be fully gone by the time we go to Hawaii for vacation.
