I'm Back Sort Of..................

I have been right here. Yup. Just had a
little hiccup. Have had to have my leg
above my heart for 2 weeks. (They didn't
tell me that until the day of surgery)
On Dec.30th I had surgery after 
 a biopsy I had on Dec.16th
came back positive for cancer. So I scheduled
 the surgery for the 30th. All went well and 
my son took very good care of me. Gained 
a little weight but am working on that now.
All is well and the second biopsy is clear.
Now this was skin cancer on my leg and not the
really bad kind but they did leave me with
a 4 inch battle scare. It was a tiny spot I found,
but the Dr. said it may be tiny on the 
surface and larger under the skin. Why am I
telling you all this. I just want you all to really 
watch  and check your skin. If you are told it's nothing
but your not feeling right about it, CHECK it out with
a doctor that deals with this. It's better to be safe than sorry.
Enough lectures, want you to see the lads and how they
stood watch over me.
 Checking me out
 Falling down on the job.
Guarding me with his eyes closed.
They seemed to know that something wasn't right.
What sweethearts they were along with my son who went 
way beyond the call. I am now able to drive again. Only one more
week with a cane. I actually did a little painting today. I hope you all  
had a wonderful New Years, I was asleep.

Goodness! Two weeks with your leg above your heart! Yikes. But all worth it to get a good clean report. Skin cancer is nothing to fool with.Your little lads and your big lad did their duty! Heal quickly.
Wishing you well.....

Well Sharon, I'm sure glad you shared that with us... How scary is life? You did the right thing of course .. having it checked out and the surgery. I will be coming on here to see how your doing... I don't know why but whenever I want to leave a comment it takes forever for it to come up .. many times I've just given up... But please know I'm thinking of you ... your son is an angel to take care of you, and your pooches.. what a comfort... Take it easy, don't push and do everything you have to ... get better and PAINT. !
I send you a big hug...

Glad to hear you are back on the road and thankfully you found the spot & had the surgery straight away. I had the same thing on my ankle three years ago and after 6 monthly checkups, I'm now on once a year check ups. Your little ones look like they enjoyed keeping watch over you.
Get well soon

So glad you are doing better. I am trying to figure out how you kept your leg above your heart? That had to be very uncomfortable? Geez, I am going to schedule a dermatologist check-up! I had a spot on my face that original dermatologist said was nothing too and went to another doctor, it was pre-cancer but not deep like yours. Glad to see the boys took good care of you. Is your son your only child, does he live near, college, married? I'm a nosey bitch, aren't I??? Haaaaaa, The Queen needs to update her servants' records, you know?

Have a great day, my friend.
Loves from The Queen

So glad to see you again. And I'm really glad that the cancer thing is done with. Those boys really do a good job of watching over you - I even saw that they brought you some toys.

So glad you caught that cancer in time. Sounds like your son took wonderful care of you and I so love the photos of the dogs standing guard. Take care and keep getting better quickly.

Oh my goodness, Sharon - you have been through a lot! I'm so sorry for the pain of the surgery, but so thankful that you were vigilant and were able to have the cancer treated quickly. Do take care!

goodness Sharon, so glad to hear all is well now. What made you feel it was something different? I always look these things up online, but each person's individual experience is different and often doesn't even resemble what is posted online. Your pups are so sweet! Take care, healing wishes.
