My Turn

Apache Junction, AZ  High 56   Low 47

After our exhausting Wednesday we had to be up at 5:30 Thursday morning. I needed to be at the dermatologist at 7:30 for my Mohs procedure.

P1070545

It went quite well. He got all the skin cancer on the first try which made me happy. The worst part of the whole procedure was when they put the numbing solution in. It really burns. But once you’re numb, you are really numb. So the only thing I could feel was some pressure when the doctor pushed down on my forehead.However, they forgot to tell me they gave me a black eye.

paulTook about three hours and I was out of there. Met up with Paul for lunch at Native New Yorker.

Paul was having his motorcycle serviced and after lunch he came over to the house and we visited until his bike was ready.

Tonight my head hurts and I’m really tired. I’m going to wait until tomorrow to post this. And I’m way behind on reading blogs. Hope everything is good in your world.

  1. At least they got it all. I know what you mean about the pressure - I could always feel the pressure when having cataracts removed. It hurt, and hurt for a while afterward.

  3. I'm so glad the procedure went well, and I have to say you look really, really pretty. I think that black eye and forehead patch look great on you. :) Get some rest and feel better soon.

  5. Bless your heart, so sorry you had to go thru that! But glad it is behind you! Hope you will feel good by Xmas. I'll bet Jim is going to get a lot of teasing about the black eye! Check out the snow on Mt. Lemmon on my blog. Snow! We made a wrong turn somewhere!

    It seems as if there is nothing that stops you from always writing a great post.

  24. Glad they got it all on one try, Nat has had to have many slices on some of his MOHS before they got it all--he too has had a black eye. Hope you feel better soon!

  25. If it takes more than one try here, they supply lunch for you. You'll be amazed how quickly it will heal. See you Monday.

  27. Sure looks sore but a very necessary procedure. Hope you heal up soon.

  28. I've been down that route also with MOHS and don't look forward to it again. At least you headed off a much worse situation and you should be up and running in a day or so. Take good care of yourself.

  29. glad they got it all. When I first went on blood thinners Riggs was a pup and would jump on me a cause a bruise. I told Sam you'd better be nice to me or I'll call the cops, wont say a word just stand there and you know they arent going to think the dog bruised me that way...So Jim better be nice to her :-)

  30. Ah.....visits to "the doctor shop" I know that well. Glad everything turned out o.k. with your Mohs. Hope you and Bob have a wonderful holiday in spite of all the aches and pains that go with being "more mature" as my sweet hubby says.

  32. OMG, I thought you were in a traffic accident! Good you got it taken care of. Now you just need some red eye shadow on the other eye and you'll be all ready for Christmas.

  33. Glad to hear they got it all but they sure did give you a shiner. Hope you and Jim are both all recovered from your medical procedures by now.

  34. First of all, lots of hugs. I may sound a little overwhelming but you did go through a lot. Give your self a lot of praise. You deserve it. I am happy that they took care of it. I wish that I was there for you.
    Once my kids got to be on their own, I feel that I need to do for people in general, what ever I can specially for people going through pain and problems. Please take care of yourself. We can all wait for your visit at our blogs. Once you are all better we can read what you have to say.
    I hope that you are able to celebrate pain free. Merry Christmas. and Happy Holidays. Hope fully I will visit again before the New Year.
