A few words about amy elizabeth’s surgery.
Avoiding the sun is practically impossible, especially here in the Sonoran desert where the harsh sun shines all but about 12 days a year. After too many years of thinking I was invincible to hazards of sun exposure, I’m experiencing the reality of my ignorance.
A reoccurring spot on my nose became a concern, and unfortunately it was confirmed as a form of skin cancer. Yesterday I had surgery to remove it, as if that wasn’t traumatizing enough, skin graphing and 35 stitches followed. The good news is everything should be just fine and with only minimal scaring.
So now I’m probably going to turn into one of those umbrella caring, dowsed in sun screen, big hatted ladies held captive to unfashionable sun armor. Good thing I’m the farm boss around here, cuz I just created a night shift. Now I understand why landscapers cover every inch of their body even in 115 degrees. I wondered why, they looked so hot! Did they know something I didn’t? Obviously.
