It was twenty years ago that I went to the Doctor to get a mole removed from my "back pack" shoulder. The nurse was scraping away and I remember her saying to the Doctor (who was dozing off) "Doctor, could you look at this?" He woke up and then both were poking away.
A little while later I was told to come back tomorrow morning, I was going to have surgery on my shoulder.
I went to the UW Hospital and had MOHS chemo surgery performed and a few days later learned I had a malignant melanoma, the most dangerous kind of skin cancer. Geez - it was just a mole. They asked if I had ever had a sunburn! Well . . . . yea!!
Anyway - without going into details like how they scoop out your skin down to the muscle and how I could actually SEE my muscle fibers until they put this black tar stuff (zinc chloride) in a hole the size of . . . . an ice scream scoop. I said "aren't you going to stitch that up?" and they said it would heal fine "It's A HOLE!!!" I said. But you can not even see where the wound was now, everything grew back.
ANYWAY - it's been 20 years and I seem to be fine.
I mention all this because yesterday I went in for a FULL BODY EXAM and man - talk about feeling a LITTLE self conscience. I mean those guys look at EVERYTHING as they look for moles and so forth. Between the toes, running their magnifying glassed through your hair, the underside of your lips asking questions like "Have you seen this before?" Yea - like I noticed that pin size dot on my back!
Back to 20 years ago, during the procedure I actually had Dr. Mohs in attendance. They said he was the guy that invented MOHS chemo surgery. The guy was like 100 (actually 79 at the time) but I see that he invented his invention in 1938 when he was still a medical student at UW-Madison. As a student he had been trying to find a way to treat melanoma's in rats. A breakthrough came when he discovered that treating the cancerous and surrounding rat tissue with zinc chloride, allowed it to be removed surgically and examined under a microscope.
His procedure is considered the best treatment for skin cancer and if found early enough is 100% treatable and is taught to Doctors all around the world.
I love the UW-Hospital. Any teaching hospital is wonderful. The Doctors all have to stay updated on the newest breakthroughs because they are all teachers. Sure the place is crowded and perhaps the bedside manners are not 100% great but I would rather have 20 Doctors and students on my case then one Doctor with good bed size manners.
Lots of talk about Aaron Kampman being traded. Actually not a bad idea. Here is my thoughts which have been thought about for like 4 minutes so there could be a flaw.
The Vikings really went after Kampman before he sign a contract in 2006 with the Pack. He is in the last year of his contract and Minnesota still want him. So - The Packers can keep him and probably lose him next year to a team that will use him correctly (Minnesota) or we can trade him for a good 3-4 type end (which normally is a BIG guy but the 3-4 the Packers use confuses me . . and Kampman).
Food for thought.
Columbus is going to do away with separating the recycle stuff. Soon you can put it all into one big container. NO MORE SEPARATING!!! You don't gotta keep it separated I (apologies to The Offspring).
As I was going to my dermatology appointment yesterday I drove past Tenny Park. This year, in my view, has been rotten for taking fall color photos. Cold, rain and wind, but I drove past the park and it was like a light turned on. I stopped and got out and walked around for a little and managed to get this shot.
Have a nice weekend.
