One problem with skin cancers on my lower extremeties was that my blood circulation was not as good in that area and I ended up with infections and had to take antibiotics. Maybe not a problem with ones on the face.

On another matter, I have not seen any posts from mathjak lately and searched and could not find anything for a month. Hope my search was just faulty although I did it twice.

Thank you.
I think when it's on the face, they use different stitching to lessen the amount of scarring. I did get a shot of something (that hurt like the devil) and there was something in the shot (starts with "e"..... epinephrine?) which caused me to shake like a leaf. Very uncomfortable. He used Mohrs surgery technique (I can't explain it). I'm wiped out. Ice helped the pain a lot. Tylenol. I am taking an antibiotic for a week.

Took bandage off today. What a purple swollen mess I am today.

That is quite a lot of work to have done. Hopefully you will be feeling better day by day.

JRR: Thank you. It really was a lot. I didn't expect so much.

I do feel a lot better today. Sleep really helps.

I have not been on the chat thread for a while, so NYgal I hope you heal well, and JRR congrats on the new kitty!
We recently adopted a pooch (guessed to be 5 or months old) - about 2 weeks ago. So far, so good. A really sweet and not hyper puppy!

This is a rant.
Why can't Arizona learn how to count ballots so we know who won an election. Seriously, they still don't know if it is McSally or Sinema. What a disgrace. We look like a second-rate state that needs more bean counters.

^^^^^ Same here in NY state. There are a lot of absentee ballots to count and that seems to take forever.

We had a couple of close races. In one congressional race, an incumbent candidate initially won with 50.5% of votes. After a recount, she lost by 3000 votes.

A local sheriff's race here has one candidate ahead by 2 votes. They're having a recount.

I'm not surprised since you have 3 counties in that area, each with less than 1000 people, and another nearby county with about 2000 people. I hope they consolidate or share some government functions to keep taxes down.
