15 February, 2019

I had my last appointment with the guy who did the MOHS surgery on my nose.  He's so cute.  He burst into the exam room saying "Well?  Whaddya think?"  I said "GREAT!" (since the wound is just about entirely healed) and he went on enthusiastically about what a successful surgery it is.  I asked him about when it was first tried and it was in the 60s and they have been refining it ever since.  It is now considered the "gold standard" for treatment of skin cancers.

I asked if I needed to see him again and he said "No--we're breaking up" and I told him it had been "short but sweet."

I don't have to wear a bandaid any more except that my glasses hit right where the recovering wound is and so he suggested I just use "spot bandage" until I feel I don't need it any more and he gave me a bag full of them so I don't have to go and buy some.

It was a dark and stormy morning.  I have been driving to Kaiser in Vacaville "the back way," which takes me through the town of Winters to I-505, which has lots less traffic and the back road to Winters is a slow and pretty one.  But looking at the weather, I decided maybe I should go I-80 anyway because I remember when I drove home from Vacaville earlier in the week there was a spot on one of the side roads which was half flooded and it had been raining a lot since then.

This morning we discovered that I-505 was closed from I-80 to Winters and Winters had been putting out notices on the news about where people could go and get sand bags.  I was glad I had taken the busier freeway, though I do like the quiet back way.

When I got to Kaiser, it was raining.  A lot.  I have been spoiled because for so long I've had either Walt or Ned to drop me off at the front door while they go park the car, but this time I was alone and the parking lot was full, so I had to park at the far end of it.  I don't really need my walker any more, but because of the rain, I decided to use it and was glad that I did.  I also had not worn a jacket and by the time I finally got to the hospital, I was soaked, the walker was covered with water and I was starting to reevaluate my perennial comment that winter is my favorite season.

It was still raining when I left the office and I remembered that I had heard there was a Peet's in this building (there is a cafeteria in the other building, so I had not been to Peet's) so I decided to take a break for coffee and hope, against all hope, that the rain would lighten up before I left.

It's a little hole in the wall and the coffee is stored in those pressureized pots that you pour from yourself...and they had no French Roast.  But I did get a cup of Major Dickinson, which was good and I decided to try a muffin, wich was delicious.

It was still raining when I left, but it was lighter, which  was nice because though I had taken precautions to remember where I parked, I chose the wrong aisle and had to walk way out of the way, but I wasn't as wet as I was earlier in the morning.

I have no more upcoming doctor appointments and only a dental appointment next week.  Let's hope this is a situation which lasts for awhile!
