I FINALLY got the pathology report from my surgeon. The melanoma is ALL GONE! The margins are clear, and I will have reconstructive surgery this Thursday!
Thank you ALL for your prayers, good thoughts, cards, balloons, flowers, etc.
I am tired of a hole and 10 staples in my face. No new photos as I scared my friend, Jerry, last week! I scare people in person daily. It doesn't really hurt. I have not needed the big bottle of pain pills I was given. On to the next step.
On a humorous note, have you ever tried to wash your hair without getting your face wet? It is a challenge. I normally wash my hair every morning in the shower. Now I get to tape a strategically cut ziplock bag to my face, hold a washcloth over it with my left hand, wet my head, stick my right hand out the shower door to Brad who is patiently standing by, and say,"shampoo please". He squeezes some into my hand. I lather my head with one hand and carefully rinse. Then I stick my hand out again asking for body wash, and take a one-handed shower. Tricky...
