Well, once again my Momma has faced another cancer removal with the same bravery she has shown every time.
This time she was on a high cause a place on the end of her nose turned out to be nothing. She returned to her doc’s office only to have him be concerned about a spot below her bottom lip at the corner on the same side where she lost half her nose many years ago and had to have extensive reconstructive surgery. The very same side she also had to have her upper lip repaired just a couple of years ago and is still sporting a sizeable crater in her face.
He biopsied it and yes indeed, that ugly “C” word was back.
She has quite a cut below her lip with several stitches and this time, she was under sedation, but not the kind where they put the tube down the throat. She was just sleeping lightly. She came home in a little over an hour and is doing okay other than it leaking blood and of course there is pain.
I don’t know how she does it, but she says it just is what it is and there’s no use whining or complaining cause she can’t change it.
I wish I had her attitude about everything.
Onwards and upwards once again, please God she’s had her share, no more skin cancers please!
