Whiner alert, whiner alert!
I just came back from my dermotologist and it seems an area of basal cell skin cancer I had removed a year or so ago has come back with a vengeance and is now what they call morpheaform or sclerosing cancer that sends out tentacles and is super aggressive. I'm sitting here with an earlobe that looks like someone took a bite out of it then burned it with a cigar and I have to go back and get the rest of the cancer out that he didn't get out yesterday, next week. I'll no doubt lose part of my earlobe and my ability to wear an earring on that side. I'm more upset about that than anything else! :teehee:
Wear your sunscreen folks and slather your kids up real good too. My doc says all my skin cancer problems came from being burned as a kid. 30+ years ago it just wasn't that much of a big deal to wear sunscreen.

I wish you all the best and hope you can find enough ear for a new piercing. Why can't we go back and get do overs on bad behaviors.

Cancer s@#ks! I'm so sorry you are having to go through this. You are so right about the sunscreen. My wonderful, way too young dad died of melanoma (way, way worse than what you have) and all the doctors said that it was from bad sunburns he had as a child. Do overs would be so nice.

I'm sending prayers and positive thoughts your way. :hug:

I talked to my doctor last night. They are going to do a little more surgery then put me on some topicical chemo for six weeks. I think I'll have enough earlobe left to poke another earring hole through. My husband keeps saying to me "I'll get you another hole", meaning he'll have the ear fixed so that I can wear an earring over there. Everytime I hear it I just laugh at the way it sounds though. :roflhard:

Well, thankfully your DH is going to get you a new hole, when all is done! Is he going to get you new earrings to go in the new hole? Tell him after all you've been through, it's the least he can do for you!

Good luck and I will keep you in my prayers.

Hang in there and stay positive. At least it isn't something serious like a stash theft!

A new hole with some diamond studs poking through?:teehee:

Good luck through all of this. You have a good sense of humor about it all. :hug:

BTW, thanks for the sunscreen reminder. :thumbsup:
