So, it's been a busy week for me as usual, made a little busier with feeling a little under the weather. I'm starting to feel a little better which is good, but I did receive some unsettling news today.

About 3 weeks ago I had a mole on my upper chest biopsied, mostly because the doctor didn't know what it was. Today at work the phone rang, I answered it, thinking it was a regular work question. The receptionist from the doctor's office asked if I had a moment to speak to the doctor. Of course I answered yes, but my brain was already going a mile a minute. I knew that if she was calling, that the results turned up something, but I wasn't quite prepared for melanoma. I have skin cancer and more specifically, melanoma, the "worst" type. Very shocking news, so I have spent the past 5 days or so digesting the news and I'm doing okay now. I have an appointment with a surgeon on November 22 and after that appointment I will have a better idea of where things are at. I'll be sure to keep you all posted! I am hoping we have caught it early!

So, make sure you wear sunscreen every day and be sure to check your entire body for any wacky moles.

Take care,


  1. Keep you chin up! Things will be okay, I know it. Looking forward to seeing you on Saturday!

  2. Positive attitude is key. Leads to positive energy and good results! Thinking about you.
