The C Word

And I'm not talking about C U Next Tuesday. 


Tuesday we got the news that the mole that I nagged Frank to have removed for two years is Malignant Melanoma. He has an appointment with a Cancer Doctor today, I suppose to schedule more tests to find out if it has spread to his lymph nodes. 


I will never joke about him being my imaginary husband again. He is very real. He loves me more than anyone else ever has. He loved me when I thought I was unlovable, and gave me a life that at one time I didn't think I deserved.

I'm so sorry to hear this, Kim. I hope it turns out to just be minor and he can pull right on through it. My thoughts will be with you both! {hugs}

Hiya Kim, my older sister just had the same thing in the last month. They found the spots during just a routine physical and they turned out to be malignant melanoma. They had to remove the spots and then go in to perform a relatively easy surgery and now she is doing fine, thankfully. I hope that all goes well with your husband!! We're thinking of you guys.

Kim I'm so sorry. My sister was diagnosed with Melanoma last year and it's been simply gut wrenching. I am sending you lots and lots of love and hugs. I'm thinking good thoughts for you and Frank.

Tomorrow is my one year anniversary of being diagnosed with cancer. They went in, took it out, did all the tests, and I am all clear right now. It is hell waiting for the results to come back but cancer likes stress, so do not stress! BE POSITIVE POSITIVE POSITIVE.

Your husband is going to be great. There will be no lymph involvement and will just have to have it removed and then be done (and be careful in the sun).

F*&! CANCER!

So sorry to hear this Kim. A few years ago, my dad had skin cancer, he had a number of malignant melanomas removed, and all the treatment that went with it. It was a hard time for us as a family - but if caught early enough, it can be treatable. My thoughts are with you xx
