What a whirlwind in the last 10 days! I did have the surgery done on my umbilical hernia. The surgery went well and it is healing fine. Before they sedated me the surgeon poked his head in and asked me about a spot on my nose. It has been there for awhile and I told him the story and he said it is basal skin-cell carcinoma or skin cancer. Yikes! When he checked on me in recovery he mentioned it again so I made an appt. with my primary care doctor and have been referred to a Dermatologist who specializes in treating it.The procedure is called MOHS surgery. Basically, they cut the skin microscopically and then test the cells right on the spot so they know how much they have to cut with the least disruption. Kinda scary! There is a 98% success rate so that's great odds.
Last Sunday I ended up with acute colitis and my friend Linda took me to the ER. I had not eaten and had the belly wound and I was so sick - bleccchhhh! I am finally feeling better now and my silver lining, albeit it being a hard way to get there is I am down to 235. It's been at least 15 years since I have seen the 230s.It has taken 7 years total to lose 80 lbs. I plateaued for years but never slipped too far thankfully.
Then there was the election... I have no words but I did drag my booty to the poll though!
Still need to look for work but needless to say I have been a little under the weather.
Until next time...
