On this day of the skin cancer selfie it has been one week since the repair. I think for a week things are looking so much better. Don’t you think?
Skin Cancer Selfie: Day 9
My eye is a a little red today and I’m not really sure what that’s about. Probaby just tired.
Yes, it’s pretty good I think. Healing nicely and definitely looking less noticeable.
Yesterday the little miss had a field trip to a local paint your own pottery studio.
It was great to see her with her little preschool friends and also to just get out of the house. For several moments I didn’t even think about my current state. Didn’t explain to the stares what was going on with my face. I enjoyed the time with my sweet girl and just focused on her. It was dandy.
Afterwards, since we were in the neighborhood, we made a quick stop here for a visit.
Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery – So many beautiful memories in one beautiful place.
I love this place so very much. It holds two very important people to me.
Both of my grandparents had basal cell carcinoma. My grandfather lost part of his ear and my grandmother had extensive skin grafts on her nose all because of this type of skin cancer. Basal cell is an ugly skin cancer that leaves permanent reminders.
Again this whole basal cell thing seems to always be on my mind.
Protect your skin. Wear sunscreen. Do not tan. Get annual skin checks.
