Choose You Blog
Today? I get my sutures out. Honestly, that is the high point of the day and it comes at 10:00 a.m. Anything else is just frosting.
Today? I get to enjoy the fact that the cells were simply dysplastic, not melanoma and that all of the skin cancer I am dealing with is at the “early detection, simple and easy to treat” point.
Today? I get to appreciate that I pledged to Choose You, with a focus on my skin, the largest organ in my body, and I have stayed true to my promise to protect my skin and get it checked.
Today? I am happy that the excised spot removed all of the problem cells and I’m finished with that area. It’s good now. I look forward to rubbing scar lotion on it, and being able to scratch.
Today? I am okay that I’ll have a scar that will be noticeable. It means I am alive and living and none of us get through this without scars. Also, this one is so very small, especially in context.
Today? I feel very lucky that I don’t have to worry about this and can turn my mind and attention to the many amazing things in my life: my family, my friends, my work, the constant chirrup of cicadas, oh wait, scratch the last bit. Those just remind me of the heat.
So now, for tomorrow, I’m going to think about what next.
