Aaaah SHIT! I just got my biopsy results. It's melanoma. [View all]

About a half an hour ago I got the call from my dermatologist's office. The prognosis isn't too bad, in fact, it's pretty good, and I'll have surgery on Wednesday. Besides, I've already kicked cancer's candy ass once, way back in '97; and I'm ready to do it again.

We caught it early, and it appears to be not overly invasive; but having heard the "C" word once already, I'll admit that hearing it again was a gut punch. After hugging my wife, and telling my sons how much I love them, I may have to be twice as obnoxious for a couple of days, just to convince myself that I'm too fucking tough to be sick. (If so, I apologize in advance.)
