I went to the dermalologist for my 6 month review and she said the mole on the left of my chin looked different. I have had this mole for all my life. She said I could watch it or have her biopsy it. I said take it off and biopysy it as I already had a skin cancer removed a couple of years ago that was basil cell. This involved plastic surgery as I had the right nostril reconstruced. Well, the biopsy came back with cells that were potential Melanoma. This scared me. I went to my skin cancer Dr. today and he is removing the cells around the mole and said it was good it was caught so soon. I go every 6 months for checkups. I was hoping to get our caregiver but he is not available at the time of the Dr's surgery. So, Larrys daughter can come to stay with Larry on the 19th as she is off that day.
Larry is stil struggling with his swallowing and weak leg. The swallowing bothers me the most. We have used the max for PT and Speech therapy as it is one amount allowed by Medicare of $1,990. per year.
Yesterday, Larry's son, wife and our granddaughter Rachel, age 6 came over and we went to a nearby park. I wanted to get Larry out for a while and he enjoyed watching Rachel. She is so energetic and watching her wears us out. lol The weather cooperated as it has been less humid and mild temps.
I just hope we can get through the rest of the summer with no other unexpected events.
