My Surgery

It was on the 8th. I was let go yesterday.

The tumor was extracted and a few ribs were reconstructed. As far as anyone can tell the tumor is gone and no Cancer was found in surrounding areas.

The scars I don't mind (foot long going across my side and two quarter sized prints of where the chest tubes were), but my side imploding on itself I do mind. My shoulder has no meat of rib to rest itself on, so it hangs lower, making my arm look slightly longer.

Better asymmetrical than dead, though.
