I say this as one who had skin cancer surg a month ago, and as I look in the mirror, I can still see quite a nice divot (which I feel good about, if that makes sense, because it was caught and banished from my person.)
With any luck, you'll be a completely healthy and happy (and voting) member of our fine forum for a very long, long. long time to come.
