Surgery day went as well as it could have possibly gone. #Melanoma did not win today.

I am home from surgery and recovering in bed as directed. I promise to follow the doctors' orders to the letter so as to be able to give an accurate picture of recovery.  We arrived at the hospital at 6:00 am and they took me...

Happy 4th of July, everyone. Wear your sunscreen, okay?   :-)  
We're off to Summerfest in Milwaukee today, which means it will be our first "real" day in the sun since I received "The Call". Okay, I'm a little nervous, but I'll be fine. Friends, today it is my goal to not spend my day wo...

A post about how difficult it is to catch #melanoma  early. Not trying to be a downer, but it's tricky. If you've got a spot you've been thinking about having looked at...go!

I'm heading in for the first step of #melanoma surgery, the dreaded "radioactive bees". Nothing to be afraid of here, folks.

Today is the radioactive tracer procedure, in preparation for the sentinal node biopsy and wide local excision tomorrow. I would like to say I am less scared now as I head toward the hospital, but I do not want to lie to you...

A post about facing my fear of #melanoma  surgery. If you've had to face something that terrified you, I'd love to hear about it. 
This is me just minutes before I finished  my first marathon in Detroit in October of 2013.  I was scared that day. Would my training be enough? Would I finish? Would I be hobbling at the end? Would I be disoriented and deh...
