SURGERY: A white-bandage Christmas

A fellow I know had Mohs surgery the other day to remove a skin cancer on his neck, followed the next day by a skin graft to cover the wound. When I saw him, he had a thick white bandage covering the side and back of his neck. He admitted that the area was more than a little sore, but displaying his usual stoicism he downplayed the entire event as "a minor skirmish." His main concern was that the large bandage would frighten his grandchildren on Christmas Day.
