Biopsy update...

Well, I FINALLY heard the news today...my skin biopsy was benign. I called twice earlier this week to see if the results were available, I'm sure the receptionist thinks I'm nuts but the Dr. was 90% sure it was malignant so what's a girl to do for a week following the biopsy...worry, worry like crazy and read as much as possible about basal cell skin cancer. Not a great combo. Anyway, this doesn't change my way of protecting myself and my family from the sun, I will be as careful as possible. In one word I'm "relieved"!

P.S. There is an article in this months SELF magazine on skin cancer-I urge everyone to read up and be even more informed!

Hi! I haven't commented on your blog before, but I enjoy reading it and I wanted to tell you how happy I was to read this post! Yay!

YAY! Glad it all worked out. I've had many people close to me, including my dad that had skin cancer issues and it's no fun. SPF rocks! And a big hat. And sunglasses. Never can be too safe.

Oh, thank goodness!! Waiting for results is always the hardest part in my opinion. Once you have them, you can take action, make a plan, etc. But until then it's easy to plan for and imagine the worst.

I'm SO glad to know that you're ok!!
