I'm not Dumbo anymore
Today, at 2 pm, I completed 48 hours since my surgery for skin cancer. I removed the big bandage that had been put on my ear, and Judy cleaned the dried blood from my ear and put a new and smaller bandage on my ear, with Vaseline to keep the injury moist. This bandage will be changed twice a day, and my showers will help keep the wound clean. I'm not feeling any pain from the surgery, and that is good! I'm not anxious to take pain medication for fear that I might become addicted to the medicine. I go to the surgeon next week to have the surgery checked. In about a month, the wound will be healed.
