It's been exactly four weeks since my Mohs surgery and my lip is completely healed. It still feels a little weird to the touch, and when I run my tongue over it, but its totally closed up. It's hard to describe the sensation... it feels like it's not entirely solid under the skin -- probably because it's not. And the nerves are in a weird state -- probably becauase they are growing back.
Go back one post and look at the pictures (if you have the scroats) and imagine that THAT healed on its own in less than 4 weeks. Amazing.
Anyway, all this means I can actually go out without worrying about shit getting on my lip and use real SPF lip balm, which, in turn, means I can think about biking to the ferry again! Shooting for Friday this week.
I feel like the last time I said I didn't need to blog anymore I sort-of jinxed it, so I'm not going to say that now. I have a follow-up appointment with Dr. Arron and Super Z next Wednesday and I need to make an appointment with Dr. Damon. Though he reduced my Tac to 0.25mg (via email/Mychart - yeah!) I still haven't seen him in awhile, so I probably should. My guess is it'll be after I get back from Europe. I'm heading to France (br's wedding) and Dublin (work) from June 5th to June 15th!
I'm blogging from the ferry so I can't really add a bunch of pics, but here's a video of Orion crushing one at AT&T Park last Sunday for Little League Day. If you look closely you can see Floyd in his Grasshopper's jersey trying to make the play in left field.
Kickin' it like Orion be crushin' it, yo!
