The big "C"?
Well, Hunter and I had a little change in plans today. We went to Westport and hit the shops for a while (hello lovelies) and instead of the Children's' Museum I grabbed an iced coffee and we hit a little playground nearby, it was just too nice to be inside. We had so much fun! Met another mom and her two boys; Leo and Jasper and the boys all played together in the sand, they actually shared trucks and played together on the swings and on the slide for almost two hours. It was perfect. Then Hunter came with me to a dermatologist apt. I wanted to get a bump on my upper lip looked at that I noticed these past few months. Well, the Dr. wanted to biopsy it immediately, after looking at the biopsy cells she's 90% sure it's basal cell carcinoma (skin cancer), but we won't know for sure until the labs have their results. After the biopsy the Dr. told me if the results are positive we will have to discuss micrographic surgery. Excellent. (by the way...when I had the biopsy Hunter said "Mama don't jump"-he's such a sweetie) Well, this wasn't how I planned my day, it definitely took the wind out of my sails but what are you going to do? Fingers crossed she's not correct with her hunch. If she is, it's good thing I got it checked out and am dealing with it. It's totally curable. So, for all of you guys and gals out there...get a skin check before the summer starts! And thanks Hunter for making me smile during my ENTIRE Dr's visit:)
