Day 236 - November 23rd

I found myself back at... can you guess where?... That's right!! The doctor's office!! At least it was different this time. I met a skin specialist to have a discolored, oddly shaped mole looked at on my shoulder. Long story short... I'm having it removed and biopsied in January to find out if it's cancer. If it's not, then the ugly thing is off my shoulder. If it is, then the ugly thing full of cancer is off my shoulder and will be done with. But guess what else? I'm having a few other moles removed too, just for "fun". The one that everyone sees when they look at me is coming off! My parents did a great job of telling me it's a "Beauty Mark". It didn't don on me until a few years ago, that it's actually a big ugly mole. So bye bye mole! And I'm having another removed too that not everyone gets to see. It's a secret one.

Also... I'm sure my new skin doctor thinks I'm a weird one and a little too sensitive about moles. But, I couldn't take my eyes off of him. He came in, sat down, started talking and I found it hard to pay attention. I wanted to hug and squeeze him and not let go for a long time. And no, not because he was going to take the "beauty mark" off my face. But because he looked just like my Uncle David that passed a month ago. His hair, his skin, his build, the way he carried himself, and the way he spoke. I wanted to just hug that man and tell him I missed him so much. But I restrained myself and I look forward to going back in January.
