Two Weeks (Plus Some) Later

I had my second round of stitches removed just over two weeks ago. Scar 2.0 isn’t nearly as “pretty” as Scar 1.0. Those are the breaks, I guess, when you have to have surgery on top of surgery.

It’s angry and red, far bumpier and sensitive to the touch.


Vanity, vanity…thy name is Shannah. And particularly Shannah’s upper lat.


I know it will get better in time – and far better to have an angry, red, bumpy scar than skin cancer growing unchecked.

And speaking of checked…I’m heading back in November for my new normal routine of skin checks every 6 months.

Have you scheduled your annual skin check yet? Because you should. You really really should.
