That is Going to Leave a Scar.
The procedure was a little harder than I thought it was going to be. I really do not like needles nor the sight of blood. If I did I would have stayed in the Pre-med program at the University of South Florida. I assumed just a small section would be cut off and I would have a stitch or two. But 10 minutes in I started to get a little concerned. I kept feeling him tug away at my arm and started to smell burning flesh. I asked why the smell was and he said he was stopping the bleeding. When my fingers twitched a couple of times because a nerve had been hit I kind of wished then I would have gotten a second opinion and looked into this skin cancer thing. Did this doctor know what he was doing. Did he know he was messing my clutch hand? Didn't he know I had a cross race to race this weekend?
Funny thing is I use sunscreen most of the time. The only time I did not was when I was driving with the windows down and my arm outside the window. I do not know if this has anything to do with it, but you never know. I must admit that I am a little concerned about the future. In talking to a few of my friends it turns that several relatives of theirs died from skin cancer. I guess I need to keep an eye out and use more sunscreen. But then again it could be just genetics and I there is nothing I can do.
