Surgery ain't gonna slow me down!

Ok maybe it will a little. Docs found a malignant melanoma on my back in August. Now that I've had it, every mole that is even remotely suspicious gets removed. They don't just shave it off either, they take a pretty big chunk of me with it. All this just to say I had 2 removed yesterday and am surprisingly sore from it (I guess 10 stitches is nothing to baulk at). I have to go in every 3 months for full body checks and I sure hope they don't find anymore. I have a total of 11 holes in me now and I tell ya, I'm wearing my sunscreen religiously. So I have an excuse to sit and knit all day today, so that's just what I'm going to do.

Wear your sunscreen!
