I hope you have a lovely holiday papermoon and enjoy the time with your son.
Doing something different is a great way of keeping your mind off any upcoming procedures I've found. Unfortunately I had a phone call this morning to say that the surgeon isn't now available tomorrow and my biopsy has been put back a week

Oh what a bummer latchbrook so whats the new date? Its awful when you get all psyched up then get let down. Youre right about being away as a distraction and being with my family is never a dull moment we are touring scotland so won't be time to dwell.
It's now going to be next Wednesday papermoon instead of tomorrow. I know another week won't make much difference but it's still annoying.
Hi latchbrook, I’m just commiserating with you that you have to wait another week, as you say it’s just annoying when you have got yourself in a mind set and then you have to reset again for another week. I wonder if that calls for another holiday ?!!
I had the lesion removed yesterday evening. The wound has been closed with dissolvable stitches which is great as I don't need to have them removed.
Results should be back in 2-6 weeks although the nurse hoped it would be more likely to be the shorter end of that timescale.
The plastic surgeon was a really friendly guy and chatted throughout my op. Turns out he specialises in burns so my minor op must have been a piece of cake for him!
Having a couple of days of taking it easy to give the wound a chance to heal. Arm isn't even sore this morning so it's going well so far.
Hope everyone is doing well
