At Long Last: Parasite Images

I know that not everyone is excited to see what my parasite looks like. When most people think of "parasite" they immediate think of gross intestinal critters you pick up from foreign travel that give you diarrhea. Luckily for me, that's not the kind of parasite I have (mine is not intestinal).

So I've actually gotten a few abdominal scans of the parasite over the last 2 months or so, but you couldn't really tell what it looked like. This most recent scan was higher resolution and gave the doctor more detailed information on the development. It has been confirmed that my body will release it in early August.

Here are the images in order.

This first one is from early January:
The second one is from late January:And the third one is the most recent:
