A mole on his back that has changed since his last appointment! Got the X-ray and blood tests back today and they already have scheduled an appt. with a dermatologist for Tuesday. Second opinion before going to a specialist. My poor, sweet man. He is a bit withdrawn right now ( only been about an hour since they called). Al, I am letting him process this and giving him time to do his own online research, but, again, it is hard to step back and let him be.|
Of course, we both know a great deal about cancer and were not surprised with the doctor calling out his mole changing, but it is scary and will be a long weekend til Tuesday. Fingers crossed on that part...
So, I contacted both of our "kids", and, 'yes, come down tomorrow and Saturday to visit the grand kids.' And, 'yes, we will spend the day on Sunday taking down and boxing up the outdoor decorations for you.'
One thing I am learning is to keep busy, spend time with our kids, and to ASK for help, NOT wait...this will give us time to talk things out, in case we have to deal with yet another health issue. An awful lot of talking happens on the long drive to see our granddaughters...
To others on the board, please hug your PWP and remember, when you think you have it rough, there is always someone else who has it worse. Sad, but very true.
I need to think of something to keep his mind off all of this latest news, so I had better go.
I wish you all a loving, happy weekend...find something that makes you smile. Laughter really IS good medicine! Love you all, Jane
