Yesterday, I spent the weirdest Valentine's Day ever in surgery. Instead of a romantic dinner, I was at the hospital in Riverside, having a melanoma cut out of my cheek. YUCK
It was a same-day surgery, so I got to come home last night by 7 p.m. Today, I feel pretty good. The cuddly bear and "I love you" balloons are from my sweet interns. You can see the yellow bandage STAPLED to my face is coated with neosprorin. We will have the pathology report in about a week. Please pray that they got all the bad stuff! Then I get to go back for reconstructive surgery.
