gratitude...the 9.16.12 Edition...

I have been thinking alot about things going on in my life...really thinking and reflecting.
so.... i decided each week to write about something i am grateful for.
Some weeks it might be a biggie and other weeks it might be seemingly small...
but big or small it is important for me to be thankful.

This week happens to be a biggie...

This summer i have been having a sensitivity to the sun...
in fact it has been bothering me so much that not only do i dip myself in a bottle of sunscreen each and every day, 
but i also bought a hat...and i am so not a hat person.
Finally i decided that "at my age" it was time to make an appointment with a dermatologist...Dr S.
Dr. S looked over my skin with a magnifier, looking at every single bump, spot and pore.  Everything was going well until she lifted my bangs...
Next thing i knew Dr S did a biopsy.
I have been waiting for over a week now for the results.  
It has been a long 9 days.
Today i got the results... 

Oh such great i can breathe again.

I am so grateful...

Until next time...

  5. So glad to hear that your news was good and your post is an important reminder that we should all get our skin checked. I had a similar experience and the waiting was difficult but like you, the news was good.

  6. Glad you got good news, NancyJean. I had a spot on my leg several years ago, diagnosed as pre-cancerous ... A bit was removed and all seems well now. I still have lots of spots showing up. working on not worrying since I don't have a job and no insurance. Fortunately, they are not the same kinds of spots. ;->

  7. Hi Nancy,
    So glad to hear that it was benign. And so glad that you went for the checkup.
    Big hug
