Gonna be benched for a week....Cancer procedure...UPDATE..Stitches are out!!
This bites... starting tomorrow I am officially on the ground for a week. I have to have a MOHS procedure done tomorrow to remove the skin cancer lesion that I have on my forehead. Belch. It's a basal cell dealy, so its the 'good' kind of cancer that you cut off and its gone. Sure more are likely to come up and they will then get removed also, but for now just this one.
But it sucks b/c its right where my helmet sits up against the hairline on the corner of my forehead. A friend said I will likely not be able to wear my helmet for a while. Thats not good. But at least for this deal I will be recouperating in Colorado for Xmas with mom. I have to be a zombie like vegetable and not move much and not raise my blood pressure. The docs have cleared me to travel but I have to kind of lie around so I don't risk breaking the very tiny blood vessels in my forehead and causing a hematoma. That would be very bad.
Ok so just feeling sorry for myself. I miss being able to ride. At least I get a vacation out of this.
