Surgery - The Thing

I arrived in Nepal with a thing growing on my face - I was afraid the Nepalese authorities were going to make me buy two visas to enter the country it was so big. The thing trekked all the way up the Khumbu with me until the village of Machermo, where a very brave and talented Dr. Tallon (AKA Dr. Z) said it had to go - well I may have begged a bit to get it cut off. Dr. Tallon very skillfully missed all facial nerves and I only whimpered a bit. There is very little scaring, much to my disappointment. Who knows what it was, but it is luckily gone now.
