We left the house at 4:00 AM yesterday (you know we had to get up pretty early) to go up to JHH for lab work and a bone marrow biopsy. Not a lot of excitement, just preliminary stuff before we see Dr Borello next week. I’m hoping Zip has good numbers. He still have no immune system…I don’t think he gets that all the time. He’s out there playing golf, taking out trash, cleaning floors, just getting back to the old Zip I knew and loved. Love him more, now that he’s doing odds and ends in the house. He’s eating lots of stuff and some not so good, but he’s trying.
So, now it’s all about me. I’m getting ready for my 50th Class Reunion and had my hair done. It’s looking better each day…the roots are calming down the overall blondie look. Got my dress and I love it. Very black and very bohemian. Zip loves it. Signed up to golf at Catonsville Country Club with other classmates…yeah. Just have to get a pedicure and hair cut and car washed.
Here’s my problem…I have had this annoying spot, pimple, bump, whatever you want to call it. It started out, at least a year or more ago and was tiny and prickly. Dermatologist didn’t know what it was, so, he gave me prescription for a topical cream. It went away. Right before Zip and I went up to Hopkins in June, it came back. I put the cream on, but no luck. I didn’t have time to think about it. It was prickly and kept growing. It hurt, since it was right in the seatbelt path. Two weeks ago, I went to the Dermatologist. He looked at it, scraped it and biopsied it. Now I have a band aid on it, because it’s still irritating and itchy and whatever. Turns out it is a squamous cell cancer and it’s got to be excised, not scraped out and I don’t think I want him to do it. I called and made an appointment with Dr Davis, even though Dermatologist was not happy with my decision (nurse was telling why I shouldn’t do that) But the biggest concern – what do I do for my cool black dress? Do I wait until after the reunion? I guess Dr Davis will tell me that answer. Do I put a band aid on it? Do I put a skull and crossbones round band aid that the grandkids have, on it. Do I ignore it and just leave it out there for all to see? Don’t know. I’m leaning towards a wonder woman band aid, if I can find them or something like that. I don’t know. Your thoughts?
So, Zippy is upright and golfing and doing chores around the house, since he knows it’s all about me these days.
