Now for a little peek into my life.
is a nose ...
is a nose..
And my nose will never be the same.
Here's the story...
Last Thursday I had to have a basal cell cancer taken off of my nose. Let me tell you, this was not fun. The doctor did what he called the “mohs” procedure, which meant he would cut off what he thought was all the cancer, then do tests on that to see if he got it all. Each test took from 30 to 40 minutes. My cancer was a bit stubborn. It took three tries to get it all. Then the doctor had to graphed skin from higher up on my nose to fill the hole where the cancer had been. I asked the doctor how many stitches he’d taken. His reply, “A lot!” He let me see his handy work, and I have to say he did a great job in repairing the damage. A word of caution for this summer: use mega doses of SPF.
After the doctor finished, the nurse put a pressure bandage on my nose. It was huge. The next day I awoke to find both of my eyes were swollen like puffed marshmallows. However, today the puffiness is gone. Yeah!!! But I have to sport a large bandage on my nose for two weeks.
At least my cancer was caught in the early stages. If I hadn’t asked my GP what the funny thing (that was hardly noticeable to anyone else) was on my nose, the cancer would still be growing.
So I’m counting my blessings.
This made me think of this wonderful song by Bing Crosby. You usually only hear it once a year at Christmastime, but hey, I'm celebrating...count your blessings.
