typing this w/ one hand. had surgery last wed. on my left thumb to remove a puffy cyst-like almond that appeared some months ago. currently hand is wrapped up tight and i feel fine. [nobody doctoral thinks the growth is anything worth worrying about, in case you were worried. films were shipped and scanned and reviewed by appropriate parties].
The procedure itself was a quick and unfun experience that due to general anasthetic brought sweet surgical recollections, like say intubation, back to the fore. what times!
on the other hand, i got to watch a lot of basketball and a lot of movies.
