So about a month ago I told you about my little friend The Mole that I had to get cut out of my chest so I thought I'd give y'all an update. (Don't know why I all the sudden have a southern accent went I start typing a post, my apologies)
Well the test came back positive for Melanoma and apparently the chunk of skin the doc took out last time wasn't big enough so I had to go get more removed last week.
I'm happy to say that all went well, I've got 14 stitches underneath the skin and 16 on top. I would love to gross you all out by posting a picture of my stitches but they are located right under my boob and since I like to think of my blog as "family friendly" and because I'm always thinking of the children, I'll leave the picture out.
I did however draw you a picture, ya know, just so you get the idea.
Y'all didn't know I was an artist did ya? (There I go again, I apologize)
There was no fainting in the operating room this time. In fact it was quite the opposite, this nurse was fascinated with my cut and kept commenting on how cool it looked and what a great job the doctor was doing. Ummmkay, whatever psycho.
Now when I go back in 2 weeks to get the stitches out, the doc has to do a thorough exam. When I say thorough, I mean he has to examine everywhere that I have skin.
Which is EVERYWHERE.
I am so looking forward to that.
So on another note, Alex and I got to hang out with our nephews last Friday. We love having those two guys over, they are the cutest funniest kids ever! It was the day after I had my surgery so I was tired and loopy from the pain meds and they were concerned that I didn't feel good.
I explained to them that I had to get stitches and that I was just sore. They were so worried and of course being the boys that they are, they wanted to see the stitches. And like I said before, I'm always thinking of the children so I refused to expose them to such images.
Jaxon kept lifting up his shirt and saying "See, just go like this so we can see your stitches!"
After I explained that I couldn't do that, he then pulled his shirt collar down to show his chest and said "Ok, then just pull your shirt down like this!"
Oh, if it were only that simple. Alex and I were laughing so hard!
After the kids went home, Rachael, my sister-in-law (their mom) wrote me on facebook that Jaxon said,
"Mom, poor Kelly broke her heart and had to get it stitched back in!"
Oh I love that kid!
