and he's STILL smiling!
About six months ago, a "thing" showed up on Brad's forehead. He ignored it's tingles until it started to bleed. The dermatologist did a biopsy last month. Basal cell skin cancer. Brad calls it "the good cancer", if there is one. Melanoma is the kind that kills you. This one just has to be dug out. So that's what happened today. They basically just dig deeper and deeper until they get all the cancerous cells. The whole top of his head was numb. He said touching his "hair" felt like he was touching someone else's head. He was in quite a bit of pain this afternoon when the numbness wore off. But he's extremely tough and exceptionally manly so he's doing alright.
