actually, i have HAD a couple of places on my cheek that should have been checked months ago, but i neglected to make an appointment.
then i came across this:
this is a photo of my granddad years ago after he'd had skin cancer removed. when i found this photo, i happened to think that my mom had said something several years ago about having a place on her face on which she needed to have her doctor check.
hence, i called her and asked if she had ever done so. yes, she had; and, yes, it was skin cancer. i told her i had a couple of small scabbed places, which had not healedbut had remained on my face for months. she told me that hers were more like flat moles... for a moment, i thought, whew, maybe mine are not cancerous at all!!!
then, she said, "but, daddy's were scabbed like yours. i remember him saying that he pulled the scabs off but that they kept returning."
my granddad ended up with a scar nearly the size of the bandage in the above photo. i asked mom why his scar was so large. she told me that his doctor ended up having to do a skin graft because the cancer had spread...
will you all say a prayer that i don't have skin cancer... but that if i do, that it is contained to just the two little spots, please???
i will let you know what the doctor says:/
love and God's blessings,
