|My best tan ever wasn’t worth this.|
Friday was surgery day for me again. That was surgery #8 for those who are counting. Hopefully next week when the pathology report comes back I get the news that the margins are all clear and I can put this chapter behind me. It is scary for me to think that in two weeks I will be living in a new town and if I need more surgery it will either have to be with a new Dr or I will have to fly back to Kansas City to have it done. Let’s hope it doesn’t become an issue. I am excited to move to Vancouver and am really excited to start my new job there but I am not looking forward to having to find all new doctors. I heard the statement “It’s just skin cancer” again last week. Well, “Just skin cancer” killed 24 people yesterday, and will kill 24 more today. One of the lives taken Saturday was a young woman whose mother shared her brave and courageous fight with us. I can only hope for an ounce of her courage and fight. RIP Jillian, you have inspired me and I am sure many others. Thank you Susan for sharing her journey with us. You have done so much to raise awareness about this horrible disease.
