It was not a shock to me that I acquired some skin cancer. Being as I was a lifeguard, swim instructor, on a swim team and let alone laying out slathered in baby oil! But it’s never something you want to get.
I am just grateful that they have ways of finding it and removing it now-days.
I wasn’t very concerned about having this cancer on the bridge of my nose removed yesterday, but today I feeling quite different about it. It hurts. However, it went well and they didn’t have to go too terribly deep.
Please remember to use the sunscreen on yourself and your kids!
It might save them from looking like this one day:
Lovely – I know. Sorry.
I showed the kids this morning when I removed the bandage and Gerrit said, “Thank you mom… and now I shall go throw up”.
The swelling will go down in a few days and in a month or two (hopefully) it will look MUCH better than this.
Like I said, I’m feeling grateful.
