Today I’d like to ask you for purrs and prayers for our Dad, we would all appreciate that. Melanoma is a scary word, yet that’s the word the Dad heard when his Dermatologist called him last week. The Dad discovered a new strange looking place on his right leg, just up from his ankle. He visited his Dermatologist who did a biopsy. I already told you the results. Now then, for those of you experienced with this type of thing, it is a “Thin Melanoma” at 0.18mm and it is classified as Stage 1A. The Dad will be having surgery in real early July to have it removed.
So, why are we thankful today? Many reasons. The Dad spotted it early and it was not in an easy place on his leg for him to see it. He was able to see his Dermatologist the very next day as they happened to have had a cancellation right before the Dad called, it usually is a 2 month wait time to see him. His Dermatologist decided a biopsy was appropriate. He was able to get a surgical appointment in 3 weeks at one of the leading practices in the country. Oh yea, the Dad’s Dermatologist last name is Katz, so that’s a good thing too.
Of course we are always thankful for all of you! So, what are you thankful for today? Tell us in the comments and then join us for our Thankful Thursday Blog Hop. Remember, adopt cats, we deserve it!!!!! More Forever Homes More Often! Purrrrr! Zip! Later!
