A couple weeks back I finally had something partially taken care of that has bothered me for years.
Four moles were removed from my back and the sites stitched. Poor planning on my part had the procedure done the day Ian left for Bohol for 4 days, and the week before our trip to Hong Kong. The first day was a little hairy as my back was all bandaged up and sore. The lidocaine used for numbing causes me to get chilled and feel kind of off, and I wasn't supposed to pick up anything for a few days. This past Monday the stitches came out and 3 of the 4 are healing fine. One has been a slight problem since the beginning, with extended bleeding, and then reacting to the stitches. But all in all, I'm glad that part is done.
Now for the other half of my back.
