Fall

     The fall equionax has just passed and brought with it a definate taste of the new season.  Our high today is 57 degrees.  Usually these temperatures do not appear until close to Halloween so it appears that fall is early this year!  The mother of a friend used to keep a weather diary where she would note temperatures, when it rained, snowed, etc.  I’d love to try my hand at that yet wonder if I should try to cram just one more activity into my day. 

     It is amazing how one’s perspective on living can be affected by a phone call.  Today I received a call from my dermatologist about two biopsys that were taken last Thursday.  One spot I go back on 10/30 to have frozen; it is a verrucous keratosis.  The other, an atypical compound nervi,  she wants to look at again in four months.  Now there is a slew of information on the web about skin cancer, precursors, etc. and it appears that much information gets lost in the slew of medical terminology that tends to dominate this topic.  I am still researching.

  1. It’s good that you’re taking the research beyond the examining room. We just had a couple places on my hubby’s forehead checked a few weeks back, and one of them ended up being basal cell carcinoma. He just had surgery yesterday…it seemed a simple procedure. But the C word has sobered us up about continuing to transition our eating and lifestyle with the awareness of being more deliberate and watchful. Keep up the good research and we hope any news you get is only good…please keep us posted

  2. Thanks Robbyn. =) I think waiting is the most difficult part. Making the transition to a more deliberate lifestyle is definately the right direction for our family. I am sad that we did not start on this path earlier.
    I’ll keep you posted!
