All Clear!

The results are back and we caught the Melanoma in time. We do just have to be vigilant about check ups with the Dermatologist. Many, many thanks for all the positive thoughts and messages. All greatly appreciated.

Because the Melanoma was so close to the eye, he needed to go to a plastic surgeon. I’ve never seen a skin graft before. She did warn us that it would look bad. Yes. More than 5 cm in diameter, a deep dent and right up against the eye. Apparently it will take about three months to heal. I’m not complaining. I’m just tired of people asking’what haaaapened?’Β  Me, I’d just put a dressing over it to shut people up.Β Husband doesn’t seem to mind the questions and doesn’t want to put anything over it.

It’s a weird story how we even ended up at the Dermatologist in the first place. I don’t know about sharing it yet. I’m no believer in premonitions or anything like that, but weird is the only way I can describe it. I think Shakespeare covered it, as usual. ‘There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophies.’

My poor blog has been rather neglected over the last year or so. I don’t dare say I will post more regularly. To add another quotation, Robert Burns this time. ‘The best laid schemes o’ mice and men gang aft agley’. Go pear-shaped, if you want a translation on the last three words. Although that is British slang which might be from the second world war. And that’s the start of a rabbit-hole right there…

I’m crocheting myself a shawl. If that makes me an old lady, so be it.

    You hould just answer that question with: “I caught him making eyes at somebody else!”

    Yea!!! What a relief! And premonitions are real… glad you paid attention.

    I don’t think making a shawl makes you an old lady — only a smart one. If you have a choice between turning up the thermostat and putting on a shawl, the shawl is the smart choice!

    YAY! I DO believe in weird stories and premonitions, especially in medicine. I understand if you don’t share, as I understand even if you don’t.
    I don’t think of myself a shawl person, but then I recall how pleasant it is to wrap my afghan around me to let the dog out on chilly days, and I realize, I am a shawl person in five minute increments! What I am is a quilt person πŸ˜‰

  11. So glad for your good news! Hope everything heals up quickly and well πŸ™‚ That doesn’t make you an old lady – would love to see pics as it progresses!

    Sorry I missed this earlier. Wonderful news on the operation and I am sure the scar will hardly be noticed once healed.
    I am also a shawl person and have a few crocheted shawls. Nothing better than sitting near a fire with a shawl around my shoulders while reading a good book. I crocheted my first shawl in my teen years. πŸ™‚

  13. Hooray what excellent news!

  14. So glad they caught the melanoma in time. πŸ™‚
