Basil Skin Cancer -


It's true.  I went and had a growing lump on my forehead looked at and when they did a biopsy on it, it came back as Basil Cell Carcinoma. It is the most common form of skin cancer.  I was supposed to go back and have it surgically removed, but soon found out I was pregnant and just ended up waiting and it ended up growing back really fast. So finally 3 months after having Morgan, I went back in today to have it looked at.  While there they happen to have a patient in the office with the same thing so they could show me the before and after photos and scar on her face from the Mohs Surgery. It was awful looking. It really scared me and I almost wanted to cry.  The good thing is that they say my cancer spot is much-much smaller than hers so my section and scar will me much smaller.  I know that is superficial to worry about it, but for what I do for work, it is important, and who wouldn't worry about any type of surgical procedure being done on their face. 

Anyways, while at my appointment my friend Val took this picture of me and my baby girl.  Everyone just thought HE was the cutest thing ever.  I guess the brown colors and her little hat threw them off.  Come on people girls wear brown too..... look at mommy!!!! LOL  She is just darling though isn't she?

I'll be praying for you, girl!!! I just can't believe how quickly little Morgan is growing. Seems just like yesterday I was meeting her at a whopping 5 days old.

Please keep us posted!
