But I had an appointment today with my local endocrinologist and she said she'd do it for me!
So happy I don't have to drive back down to Rochester for a 10 minute appointment.
My trip to mayo this week identified some granulation tissue, a common post-surgery complication. Basically the body overheals and creates tissue that doesn't finish the healing process the way it should. The way it's treated is to literally cauterize it using silver nitrate, to move the healing to the next stage.
The PA at mayo scheduled me to come back in 2-3 weeks to treat it again (it commonly takes two or three treatments to clear it up). 😩

Seems like a good time to cancel your Netflix subscription.
My mom decided to try some water thin covid denial out with me the other day. I still have some tiny hope she still respects me as a smart person so I tried to redirect her from conspiracies about over-counted deaths to appreciating/reflecting on how death isn't the only way people suffer from covid.
Just finished the local PBS station’s documentary on the Minneapolis Co-Op wars, telling the story of how the booming co-op grocery scene in the 1970s was almost torn apart by a fight between organic food idealists and communist organizers. Really fun and informative: https://www.tpt.org/co-op-wars/
