Have you ever found that good news tends to take some time getting through, but bad news travels fast?
I sort of feel like I have been traveling in the fast lane over the past week. I went into see my own doctor on Monday February 4th. He also felt I should see a good Dermatologist. I’d found Dr. A. and I wanted to be sent to her.
When my doctor’s secretary called for an appointment, she was told, June or July would be the first available appointment. In the meantime, they asked my doctor for his notes.
By the time I got home I was telling myself to not be picky and go to the first available Dermatologist. Then on Wednesday February 6th I got a phone call from Dr. A.’s office asking for my surgical records.
That afternoon Hubby drove me to the local hospital and I signed the privacy form so that my records could be sent to Dr. A.
By Friday, I had an appointment for the following Monday. On Monday, I had two biopsies taken.
On Wednesday, February 13th, in the early afternoon they called to tell me that it is a return of the cancer. I now must go to a special surgeon for a Mohs Operation. The good news is, that this procedure gives you a 98-99% chance of a full recovery with no relapse at that sight.
Then, as I sat thinking about the road ahead, I was reminded about my favorite movies. And this segment!
Who knows? Maybe they’ll find my twin!
