Saw the plastic surgeon today.  She has to "make an even bigger hole" than my current one with 3 stitches on my shoulder.  I have basal cell cancer according to the biopsy.

All these years (I was told.....25 years ago or so) that I had melanoma on my face (tiny spots) and shoulder........  I have basal cell cancer on my shoulder.

It turns out basal cell cancer is common, and the least (?) dangerous type of skin cancer.  The plastic surgeon said that if my shoulder was untreated, not much negative would happen - it's rarely fatal.


I count my blessings - my treatment is outpatient, none of this hurts, is covered by OHIP, very little blood.  But I am in shock somewhat.  That'll go away.

I celebrated with pizza and chicken wings all weekend.

There's a tiny hole in the wall place near me that has no seats......maybe the best pizza I've ever had!

Their wings are baked, not fried......healthier.
(plus, they get a kick out of me saying "nandri" for thank you in Tamil.  Lotsa Tamils in my neighbourhood.

Hi, Paul....Thanks....

It turned out the plastic surgeon did a biopsy....hurt very little, 4 stitches.

She was puzzled that the dermatologist from 25 years ago used a laser on my shoulder skin cancer.....

I'll get the results in a couple of weeks.

Haven't celebrated with family members for ages.  We didn't make such a big deal out of it when younger, anyway.

I was going to get takeout from Red Lobster - they now have takeout!

Instead, I'm getting very good pizza from a hole in the wall place near me, and (baked!) chicken wings.


Peter

How about you?  Maybe I'll look for a restaurant tomorrow.

My surgery is Monday.....out patient, I assume.  Covered by OHIP.

The plastic surgeon has luxurious facilities with two hospital beds for more serious stuff,  I guess.

I'm a bit worried, not much.

Hello Peace. My sympathies on the passing of your mother-in-law. Congrats on helping people with their income tax. Would you like to do mine LOL. Make sure that you look after yourself first. I used to help people with their income tax and it slowly got to be too much. I found people were phoning me for help on simple items and then I wouldn't hear from them until the next year. Take Care. paul m

Mixed for me. OCD is up, but OCD is triggered by stress, so understandable. Biggest frustration on a personal level is getting notices of medical tests that are due and due to circumstances having to wait to get them done.

My 2nd mom, my ex's mom, crossed over April 1. She was 85. Been supporting the kids with that, but mostly the ex. He calls me several times a day over numerous issues. Also assisted 5 people, including the ex, with income tax processing. My initial reaction to the separation was cut all contact with the ex. I was talking to someone about it and they advised me to do what I could live with and I agree with that, so my decision was to help him, but set boundaries to protect my own health. Sad over the loss of Mom.

Good to see your sense of humour surfacing in regards to your brothers memory loss, Peter.

Families can be a pain, Dragonfly. I'm glad you have people to support you. Don't ever forget how awesome you are!

Good to hear you're reasonably healthy, Paul. More sunlight coming up should help with the SAD hopefully.

Excited about hockey playoffs. Go Leafs Go!!

Peace
