Thanks Christine! I think more and more people are having sun damage problems nowdays. I was always thinking I could tan, but just burned instead. We always teased my grandmother (fair-skinned like me) because she absolutely would not set foot outside during the day without her bonnet or a hat on. She had a collection of them she sewed for herself kind of like this one:

and she had beautiful skin up until her death. Wish I'd paid more attention.

I may or may not go to P90x tomorrow morning -- will play it by ear. Hate to miss as it's just once a week. I think they are overly cautious on their advice to patients just to cover all the bases and not get blamed if something bad happens. So I'm taking it with a grain of salt.

Crapola on the one growing that he didn't think was a problem. Doctors!%#@#

I pray I am not going to have anymore problems either but the way I used to tan all the time, there are no promises in my future.

Well do what you can for fitness, I don't think doctors know what they are doing half of the time.

Thanks Christine! Guess what -- no mohs. Wasn't that bad on my shoulder. Poor communication with office staff as the girl who read my results and set up appt said mohs for both locations but only one performed per day. So I definitely set it up for my shoulder. Dr said "well, we'll do the forehead today" and I had to tell him "No -- I'm going to plastic surgeon for that." However -- and this really gets me -- the place on my leg near my calf -- (that I was worried about on initial visit and he told me it wasn't anything to worry about) has grown and has been bothering me, so I had him look at it again today (2 months later) and he had it biopsied. I could tell he thinks its cancer by the way it has grown so much in a couple months. I'm not obsessing about it and know it will work out OK most likely -- but if sure do wish he'd taken it more seriously when I first showed it to him.

Oh yeah -- edited because I meant to add that part of my instructions for the procedures today are not to exercise for 2 weeks. Sorry -- don't think I'm going to follow that one to the letter.

Hope you have a really nice trip! emoticon

Kathy -- heading in this coming Tuesday to have the skin cancer on my shoulder removed with mohs surgery. You get in early and they take it down layer by layer -- looking at each layer under a microscope -- until the cancer is gone. Can take a good part of the day if it's deep enough. Then...the Tuesday following I have a consultation with a plastic surgeon to remove the one on my forehead. Plastic surgeon does not do mohs, but I've decided to go with him (if he'll do it) as it is in a visible place on my face and both my primary care dr. and one of DH's friends who is a pathologist think the plastic surgeon can do the job just fine. So I feel good about my decision so far.

OK--- my latest disaster--and comic relief--- is about the greenhouse DH and I are setting up. Actually we have a handyman friend of ours helping, and he and DH are doing most of the work. This morning DH was digging with a pick ax to make an electric line out to the greenhouse. He not only busted a pipe to the sprinkler system, but also the pipe to the gas line. Gas man came out to repair the gas line -- fine -- BUT wrote us up on the gas on-demand water heater and furnace that are in the furnace room. We have had these set up for years and they are in a vented room -- but the gas man today said it would not do, and we have to get the on-demand heater outside the building and the furnace vented. So, until we get that done we have no hot water. The same company has been out here many times through the years to fill our tank and never noticed or commented on the set up. It's always something isn't it. Well...if it was a safety hazard, I'm glad we're getting it fixed. But this greenhouse is getting to be way more expensive than we anticipated.

Thanks Kathy! Both biopsies are basal cell skin cancer (which I've had a couple before). I'm having the one on my shoulder done in Sept. by the dermatologist. The one on my face I'm going to have my primary care doctor refer me to a plastic surgeon for. My mom is still hanging in there. My Y buddy, who retired this spring, is doing some handy man type chores for her and will soon be helping us put up a greenhouse kit.

I know you've had a very busy summer! Great to hear from you!

edited because I meant to say I've been distressed by DIL's school situation. She got her teaching cert for special ed and had such high hopes. She had been a special ed aide at a school in another town and is quite good at it. She got a job in a low income district, and unfortunately has a very disruptive and violent jr. high student who has already bruised her and her aide. They promised her two aides, but could only afford one, and it is a bad situation. She is so upset, and feels like a failure and is ready to call it quits. My heart is breaking for her and truthfully since I heard about the horrible situation Monday it has really been getting me down. SO.....I'm still aching for her, but must step back and realize it is out of my hands and the situation will resolve itself in some way.

...being stuck inside when I'd rather be outside. I'm canning, but I find standing at a sink or counter all day to be more exhausting than physically working outside all day. But it's just for a season, and I'll feel proud of "my shelves" when I'm all done.

Oh Paula how frustrating!

Gina, yeah been there done that!

My own lack of motivation is my problem. I need to get back into a routine and make exercise a priority.

I have been feeling low because I have been seeing all my friends having a wonderful summer... I need to realize this is just temporary setback and I have all of August to make my summer sparkle!

CHRISTINE: -- LOVE me some netflix! emoticon

Unbelievably -- Tried several times yesterday to contact the derm office and kept getting put in the loop on their answering machine and told to leave a message. There is NO option to speak to a real person. At the end of their spiel it says "There is no need to leave repeated messages -- We WILL get back to you" Let's see....it's been since Wed afternoon I called back immediately after not getting to my cell phone quickly enough. Don't know what else I can do except physically make a trip to the office and confront the receptionist... So frustrating... so, I still don't know.

emoticon So I'm not going to let this get me down today -- Whatever it is I have on my face and shoulder have been there awhile -- so knowing or not knowing for a few more days (they are closed today, of course) is not the end of the world -- and I'm not going to let it get me down today.

Paula, DH has had a setback due to a medication issue. The one med he was on was making his face swell so he has a new appt with his heart specialist to get a change in meds. Anyway, everything is pretty much fine, so I am not wanting to dwell on it, or talk about it much. Just a bit disappointed. But I am fine, honest.

As for the forehead surgery, I would have a plastic surgeon do the stitching. The reason why I say this as this happened to my sister and then she had to go after the fact to get it done right. But if you have bangs and don't think it would bother you much just have it done by him. He sounds a whole lot rough around the edges to me too.

I was on a swimming team and so I had basal cell cancer on my chest and yep I have a scar but it doesn't bother me.

Sorry for your frustration, I would be too! emoticon emoticon emoticon

Christine, so glad to hear your DH is improving and that he's going along with the healthy suggestions. emoticon

I've been waiting for a call from my dermatologist (about 2 biopsies he did last week -- one on forehead, one on shoulders. It was the first time I had seen him since I had to change dr.s due to changing insurance. He felt pretty sure both biopsies were basal cell cancer, and would need mohs surgery.) I didn't care much for his bedside manner when I asked about the one on my forehead -- would it leave a scar? His attitude was "Heck yeah it will!" Seems like he could have said something like "probably a small scar and we'll do our best to make is as inconspicuous as possible" etc. His response sent up a red flag -- seemed like he was saying to plan for a big scar. (It's not a huge place) He also said his feelings wouldn't be hurt if I had a plastic surgeon do the stitching. So I've been stewing about that since last Tuesday. Today after lunch my cell phone rang and had gone to voice mail before I could get to it. It was the dermatology office and they left a message for me to call them back....which I did and could not talk to a real person but was assured on their little spiel that I should leave voice mail and they would get back to me --- which they didn't. So now I'm still wondering what the biopsies revealed...and I've got to leave early in the a.m. to take my Mom on her errands and I really don't want to get her involved in this. So.......a LONG way of saying that I'm not going to let that get me down tomorrow. I'm going to try to call during the day when I might get a few free minutes to myself, like when my Mom is having her teeth cleaned. If I get the spiel, then I'm going to leave another message telling them to call my home phone and either leave voice mail with the results or tell my DH. So frustrating. I've had a couple basal cell cancers on my shoulder and collar bone successfully removed by another dermatologist, but it's the one on my forehead I'm not looking foreward to.

Well, I am sure that medication mix up didn't help, and yes def could have caused it. His has A-fib. It is a problem with his heart rhythm. He had two heart ablations in Utah by the famous surgeon who developed the procedure to help correct the problem. That is where they burn his heart to correct the faulty electrical signals. His heart is enlarged right now and he is weak but he is home, for now. And he is resting. I have my chin up and praying for the best outcome.

Thank you for the hugs Paula! :)

I am not going to let this week's LONG to do list get me down. I worked really hard this weekend to have done things I wanted finished before I go on vacation Friday. I know I'll be tired after my 10 hr days, but I can at least set a timer and do a little bit of packing each evening.
