Another cancer surgery!

I'm paying the price for all those years in the sun sun bathing, playing tennis, paddle tennis, running, golf, horseback riding, hiking and backpacking.

I was a little freaked today (and so was Ray who was in the surgery room with me)after this surgery. The emotional stress knocked me out for the rest of the day after having been in the doctor's office for 3.5 hours. Much of that time was waiting to see if after the first cutting I'd need more cutting which I did need. But all the yucky cells are gone.

I came home and watched TV and slept the rest of the day. Ray brought some Tylenol home for the pain after the Novocaine wore off.

oh Linda, I am so sorry you are going through this. Kisses to you from me.
PS did Ray take that picture??!! If so, I might insist he go to photo school!

Love your style Mom, nothing but the best... Diamond studs for surgery!
I'm glad to hear they got it all. I'll call tonight, got some tools rented to finish the roof and I need to use them now.

Fair skinned folks and sun don't mix. Know the drill and haven't enjoyed any of the removals. Good noticing by Lane on the diamond studs to surgery! Hope you recover quickly!
