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.

Totally ridiculous that we haven't yet hugged! But then, my brain is foggy and so life is also a bit that way. Clearing, clearing, as the jet-lag loosens its grip :-)

Thanks for prayers. Yea, I love my hat!

This is a hot hat! (The REI one?)

And I like your poems. It is so good to be around the whole Borden's again.

Hi Cari :-) Yea, that's the hat I got at REI yesterday. I'm hoping the hot hat will keep me cool and protected. Waiting to hear from the doctor tomorrow. And we'll get to the Mont tomorrow, too. Woo hooo!

And Carrie L, thanks for prayers. Much appreciated.
