A week has passed and I’m feeling better. Nothing’s changed but I’ve managed to digest the word a bit better.

I went in to have a full skin check done and even the freckles and bumps I was concerned about were of no concern to my doctor. That’s good news.

She said I’d end up with a vertical scar on my face and it would be kind of a like a little face lift. I’m not sure how I feel about a one-sided face lift but I’d rather have that than the alternative.

She told me that chances were 99.9% that they would remove the cancer and it would never be a problem. And then she said I had a surgery appointment for 5 weeks from now but she wanted it done in the next couple of weeks.

I’m not close to tears all the time anymore. It’s still scary but I’m good.
