I went up to Tripler today for a post-surgery follow-up meeting with the ENT docs. True to form, I saw yet another doctor I’d never met before. He explained that the PET/CT scans showed no sign of any spreading cells, but that they want to see me every month for a year just to be sure they got it all. Then he looked inside my mouth, asked “How’s it feel,” told me the scar was understandably still a little raw and it would smooth out over time, and sent me on my way.

As I had suspected it would, it took more time to find a parking place up there than I had face time with the doctor.
