Default This old guy doing good

Had surgery today. The Demo doc cut a cancer spot on my right ear today. Sent the spec down to the patho doc and it came back neg. So he got it all out. Then he cut some skin off the side of my face near the ear and grafted it on the cancer spot. Took him a long time about 1:30 hours .

So I am all fit now and ready to go. Problem tho have to sit up for bit and cant sleep on that right side for awhile.

Thought I would let you all know I am fit as a fiddle.

Default This Old Guy is Doing Good

That's good to read, Ray. Seems like yesterday that we cruised with you and Helen.

Keith has skin cancers removed regularly. Living in a warm weather state is a challenge in that respect.

Incidentally, anyone reading this who's thinking about having knee surgery: Keith had it done n November of 2012, and he highly recommends it. Hurts like everything for a bit, but it gets better. You have to be sure to do ALL the exercises, though.

Keep up the good work, Ray!

I had a fairly good nite slept with no pain. This afternoon I will have Celeste, my Daughter, take the bandage off and take a peek. Then here come Hydogen Peroxide cleaning etc.

Thanks to all the good words.

Another good nights sleep. Bleeding a little but a bandaid does the trick.
