Week of 11/3/2013

Sunday - 11/3/2013
Well the extra hour of sleep last night just made for a longer day. None of my teams were playing today so there was minimum exposure to the deadly TV rays. I did get to greet a few more friends as they returned to their winter home.

Monday - 11/4/2013
Minimum of activity today. With surgery coming up tomorrow I ran to Walmart to get a few supplies figuring I wouldn't want to to a lot of running around for the next few days. Other than that not much activity.

Tuesday - 11/5/2013
Today I made the mistake of going to a knife fight unarmed. The Mohs procedure went well and I left cancer free and I was so happy I even left in stitches.



I had to wait until late evening for the Lidocaine to wear off so I could enjoy an uncomfortable night. Actually it wasn't bad and I'm well on the way to recovery.

Wednesday - 11/6/2013
Another warm day in the valley with a 92 degree reading on the thermometer. The day has been spent in the recovery mode. The arm is a little sore and aspirin has become my best friend.

Thursday - 11/7/2013
Another day of little activity and a few more aspirins. I did take a walk and my Amazon order arrived in the afternoon. I ordered a new pair of shoes that have a smooth sole. I'm tired of the waffle soles picking up burrs and carrying them into the house where they embed themselves into the carpet for me to find in the middle of the night. I'm hoping this will help. I also got a new billfold, but I'm going to return it, it's just too small for all my money. (yeah right)

Friday - 11/8/2013
The first activity of the day was to head to the UPS store to return the billfold to Amazon. This completed it was on to Walmart to renew a prescription and to pick up some vittles. Then back home for the rest of the day.

Saturday - 11/9/2013
I got a call at 7:30 this morning from Zapata and my friend Roger. He and his wife Donna and my old neighbors Harley and Annis were on the way to the Valley and wanted me to join them for breakfast at Cracker Barrel. I met them down there at 9:30 and we had a real nice visit. Roger and Donna are not spending the winter in the south and will be heading back to Illinois on Monday so it was good to get to see them. We caught up on the news from my old park in Zapata and people continue to exit because of the poor management. So sad to hear a good park ruined.

Football today and 2 of my 3 teams won so it ended up being a good day.

    1. It sure is even though in my case the words need to be followed with until next time. I've dealt with skin cancers for over 10 years, the advantage of being fair skinned.

  2. Glad you are through the procedure and cancer free. I just had my check-up and I don't have to go back for a year so that makes me happy! Don't forget that sun block.

  3. So happy to hear you are cancer free.
    To bad about the other RV Park you used to stay at makes you wonder why the owners don't see what is happening or are they the owners and just don't care?

    1. Thanks Jo.
      The lady who now owns the park I used to stay in is dumber than a post. That's all that can be said about her.

  7. Guess I'd better stock up on that aspirin stuff. I may be going back to have more of my forehead cut out. Still waiting for the biopsy results. Two out of three ain't bad for wins today.

    1. If you are like me that skin cancer just becomes a part of our lives. Hope you get a good report.

  8. Glad to hear things are going well for you. We have snow in the forecast for today. You probably already have read that and I'm betting you are homesick for MO. Take care and be safe.
