a short list of doctors
We've made it to LA and have begun down our do-list of doctor visits. Back dude for Byron; skin chick, teeth guy, eye expert and lady specialist for me.
I went to the dermatologist today and she immediately took a biopsy of the spot on my nose that started to bleed after my shower on the day we left Tanzania. (I had a mole there 10 years ago that this same doctor removed. It was biopsied and found not to be a problem at that time so this is a new development.)
I will hear back regarding today's biopsy on Friday and I would certainly appreciate prayers for a cancer-free result.
Check out my new sun hat and note the pretty band-aid on my nose where the doctor poked me with a needle and then cauterized the area. Ouch.
