ON THE BACK BURNER

May 5

   I had a "procedure " on my wrist. It's what happens when , as a teen ager, you use baby oil and iodine for a sun tan , you have fair skin to start with, you run outdoors for many years,half of it in the sun, and you move to Florida. Probably, Florida had nothing to do with the Squamous cancer cells. I never sat out in the sun in Florida, and by the time I moved there, I was smart enough to use sun block. I haven't looked at my procedure yet. It is heavily bandaged. I did take a peak when the doctor was working on it, but I saw flashing stars and decided not to look again. I do know that I have 11 stitches . Doctors orders were to take it easy the first day, today, then do what ever I feel that I want to do. Sitting on the couch with my arm on a pillow ,with an excuse to do nothing,is not such a bad thing. I watched a movie, read  some of Sherlock Holmes, napped. It's almost like having an extended snow day.
