Junie's Place: Our health update...

Our health update...

Today was my follow-up visit to my doctor and, happy to say, all seems well with me!
Since my cough/cold is about over I didn't even bring that up...lest I be sent off on another round of prescriptions and other tests which I can't afford! Lol- ok- I'm good for another 3 months!

SOON-I hope to be able to get into my walking again! I know I need that for my overall well being...so I just gotta do it!

...But-THIS week is very worrisome for us. ( so it's doubtful I will do much walking 'til later) Charles got a call back about that skin cancer procedure he had done about 3 weeks ago...and they say the tests show it is more wide spread and he will need additional cutting out of 2 areas! This will be done on Thursday of this week and will be about a 3-4 hour procedure! It will be- way out - too, at least 45 miles from us.

We're not looking forward to that day...but, hopefully, all will go well and it will be successful! They said it is definitely Malignant Carcinoma- but that it can be successfully treated. This type skin cancer is often a result of sun damage! Charles has spent his whole life working out in the hot Florida sun!

Please keep good, positive thoughts for us!

I'm a veteran of the type of procedure Charles will go through. I've had Mohs surgery and they cut me up all the time.

Positive thoughts aimed up I-75!

I've said a prayer for Charles that all goes well.
I enjoyed the tour of the pasture. The last calves to be born wouldn't survive most Nebraska winters being born right now. Up here they try to calve in March and April to give the calves a chance at winter.
Take care.

Bob, my husband, has had two melanoma and seven squamous cell carcinomas. All have been eliminated. Neither of his melanoma were over one half millimeter deep and had gone nowhere. The squamous cells were worse and they were on his scalp. It took six months for the wound to heal when they removed them.

My prayers are with Charles. My hopes are that he has a great healing attitude.
