So, about the scar…

I’m down at Webcomics Weekend, and today I received a little gentle chiding for not keeping my long-distance friends appraised of my health, especially since I recently acquired a fairly obvious scar in the middle of my throat. The story is that I did have a little touch of the cancer early this year, and had to have my thyroid removed, but it really wasn’t a big deal. The kind of cancer I had is very easily treated through surgery, and once treated poses no long term risk to my health. From the time I found out about it, until the time I was done with it only lasted about three months. I’m perfectly fine now, so when you see the scar, don’t worry about it.

But I do look sort of like someone tried to garrote me.
