I went to Eugene, Oregon last week to see my son run in the NCAA Championships for Track and Field. You can read more about the details on my other blog wordinthewoods.blogspot.com.
The first and last days, where I had to fly and switch planes, dragging my luggage along with me, were the most challenging. When I got off the plane in Newark, NJ, after a red-eye from Denver, I was a zombie. I then took a bus to Port Authority in NYC and subwayed to my friend's house in Brooklyn where I finally had a cup of coffee.
After showering and changing into fresh clothes, I went to an appointment at my dermatologist's. He said my skin looked much better, and he gave me a prescription for a new anti-itch cream. It's too soon to say whether it works or will work long-term. The best part of the exam revealed no cancer. I didn't expect there to be any, but like many of you in this boat, it's always a relief to hear those words.
