Thanks, Dragonfly!

Went to plastic surgeon yesterday.  She took out my stitches - no more surgery!   :D (but there's the odd loose end which is too technical for me)

I have to be careful with my shoulder, and should be able to exercise in a couple of weeks.


Re the fungus (?) on my legs, the prescription cream stops working after two weeks, so I stopped it.  Not sure if it helped.  This dermatologist is in Europe for 3 weeks, and maybe hasn't even seen the biopsy the nurse took.  Maybe I need an oral antibiotic if it's a fungus?

I see her next week.

General Discussion / Celebration of Life for Tom Smallwood
« Last post by Pleeb on May 30, 2019, 06:46:15 PM »
(guess it's ok to post this here)

Quote
A Celebration in honour of the life of long-time Hope and Me volunteer Tom Smallwood will be taking place on Monday, June 3rd at the Northern District Library (40 Orchard View Blvd, Toronto, ON M4R 1B9) from 7 PM till 9 PM in the Gwen Liu Meeting Room (200).

Tom began volunteering with us in June of 1997 and proved to be an invaluable asset to the MDAO team for over 20 years. Tom was known by many for his unflinching work ethic, a profound sense of compassion, and unwavering dedication to the Hope and Me cause. He was eager to provide appropriate and meaningful resources to anyone who walked through our doors.

In 2016, Tom was the winner of the Karen Liberman “Lit From Within” volunteer award. Karen comments shared during the AGM that year “ Truly, I cannot think of a more deserving recipient than Tom. He epitomizes everything that this award for volunteerism stands for. Tom was there, quietly taking on his role as a calm, kind, caring friend on the telephone and in person.”
 
On June 3rd, we would love to have you join us with some of Tom’s family to commemorate the life of this exceptional man and his incalculably effective efforts at actualizing the Hope and Me vision.


I knew Tom, as did others around here.  My operation is around 4 that day....not sure if I can make it.

Thanks
It still seems like there isn't much for families in the way of support groups, especially for parents to other parents who have a spouse who is ill. My kids wouldn't attend a group as they just wont. My husband goes to his support group but what about the well spouse?

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.


Peter
