Mohs Update 4: Stage 2 Complete

Blogging Tunes: Peter Gabriel concert on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UfBgAq0sQ1s (thanks Rob M, for the tip!)

Two stages are now complete.  They got most of it on the first attempt, but they needed to go a little more in one direction, so they just did that.  Sarah and Z (Sarah's fellow I told some of you about) are pretty confident that this is going to be it, but they can't know anything for sure until they look, of course.

The good news is that it wasn't very deep at all, so its likely that it hasn't invaded anything else and it's even possible that they won't even need to do any kind of reconstruction -- i.e. my lip may just heal up on its own. The other option is, since I have some mild discoloration on the other part of my lower lip from sun exposure, is to do some laser thing where they basically get rid of that sun exposed part (since it's a mild risk for further problems) and just resurface my entire lower lip.

We'll talk about options when they return -- probably in another 45 minutes or so.  In the meantime, I'm taking tiny little bites of graham crackers and saltines, watching/listening to this killer Peter Gabriel show, and yes, doing some work email.  If I'm still here at 2:30p, I'll listen to BOT9 of the suspended game from last night.  Please, Charlie, no Jeremy Horst!

One bit of good news is that Sarah cleared me to go to the Trey show on Friday night.  It seems that, regardless of which healing method we go with, I'll only need a big bandage for one day, and then it can be reduced quite a bit.

More soon,
