Aside from a little redness and swelling, the incision for my skin cancer procedure seems to be healing up very quickly.
Resisting my natural inclination to ignore doctors’ orders and throw myself back into the usual frenetic pace of normal activities, I’ve taken some pain killers and done my best imitation of a vegetable since Tuesday afternoon. Yes, I actually just put my feet up and have done nothing but read and catch-up on backlogged TV following the surgery. Sometimes just being a lazy schlub is a good strategy. Aside from the discomfort of having 27 stitches, this hasn’t been all that awful and things are looking good.
