Today I said goodbye to two old appendages.
This is a picture from several years ago but see underneath my right eye and you probably can’t see it but on my right nostril, there were two moles. They’ve been there forever but they were getting bigger. I’ve been needing to have them taken off but it’s really hard for me to have someone working on my face.
When I had this picture taken for my book, the photographer just wiped away all the imperfections, including the moles.
I sent mom a big picture like this and my nephew, Daniel, saw it and said “Well, they sure doctored that one up, didn’t they?” When asked what he meant, he said “the warts on her face are gone!” Mom told me and I called right then and made an appointment to have the moles taken off. I swore that the next time I saw Daniel, there would be no moles or warts on my face! But, before I could get them removed, Daniel was killed and I immediately cancelled my appointment to have them removed. No way to go through all that pain and agony of having the doctor cut and stitch on my face if Daniel couldn’t see the results.
I’ve had a history of basal cell type skin cancer and get regular checkups from the dermatologist. We have a new dermatologist in town so I went to him today and he found a couple of spots that need to be frozen. He also said the mole near my eye is the kind that can give me problems in the future and he recommended “shaving” it off. Right now? Yep, right now! Might as well do the nose too so he did . . they’re both gone. No more warts or moles on my face! No stitches . . just a tiny little pin prick for the numbing and . . simple as that . . they’re gone. I’m very glad to be rid of them!
