YEARLY SKIN CHECK SHOWS NO PROBLEMS

Chores before market took longer than normal with all the water carrying so I was late getting to market but since no customers braved the early morning cold no one noticed.
It was a slow day and I was thankful for the orders I had and I took 3 more orders for next week.
I fear the weather is going to play havoc with my Christmas business again this year as it did last year.
After market I ran regular errands and headed to my yearly skin check at my dermatologist office.
Good news except for this little spot on my cheek right in front of my ear he didn't find anything.
This spot was a small lump under the skin and he was concerned it might be a Basil Cell Cancer, which is the only type of skin cancer I haven't had. He wanted to numb it and cut it out,I said just cut it without numbing it. That numbing medicine gives me the heebie jeebies and I can feel it all the way from head to toe. So he said if I thought I could stand it he was sure he could!! It wasn't that bad,it only took 3 zaps to open it up and when he mashed it a small cyst with a long name came out and he said it wasn't dangerous.
He looked at a pink spot on my leg,the same leg the Bowens Disease was on last year, and a black spot on my toe nail and said to watch them.
I got home with just enough daylight to unload and do the chores.
We had a heat wave today with temperatures in the low 40's.
Tonight at 11:30 the temperature is 26 degrees so we are getting a little break before the next weather system that hits Sunday.
I relaxed tonight for a while then wrote up Avon orders. Avon always gets in an extra order before Christmas so we have crazy order times.
It's been a very quite evening around the old homeplace tonight and I am grateful for the peaceful times of reflection.
Grateful to God tonight for a good doctors visit and all the other blessings He gave me today.
Good Night and God Bless.

Congrats on a good doctor's visit... Glad they got the cyst --and that it wasn't cancerous. I didn't realize that you had had skin problems before. Glad you get yourself checked often. I have never had any skin problems --even though I was one to lie out in the sun for hours when I was young and STUPID... ha

Warmer today--but more cold and snow is coming... Fun Fun..
Hugs,
Betsy
