Zak’s biopsy results came back today, and he doesn’t have skin cancer. Rather he has (or had) some kind of systemic fungus infection in his system. The name of the problem is cryptococcus neoformans — a localized or systemic fungal infection, contracted through the nasal passages, and from there passes into the brain, eyes, lungs and other tissues. He just has to take daily pills for a month or two, and then he’ll be out of the woods.
