I have not been able to post for the past few days for the reasons listed in the title of my post.  I had a small place appear on my face and before I went on vacation I had a biopsy and while on vacation I get a call from the dermatologist office that I have skin cancer and need to have Mohs surgery.  I received the paperwork in the mail explaining how this is done and also did research on my own.  The doctor removes a layer of skin and has it biopsied while you wait, if it is clear then you are stitched up and sent home. If not, then another layer of skin is taken and another biopsy performed and this is repeated until the cancer is removed.

Thankfully, for me it only took one procedure and the biopsy was negative so I was stitched up and sent home.  Even though this was very minor and caught early it is sinking in that I had cancer!!  Just makes me pause as I have stated previously that our lives can change in a moment and when it does everything we have known can be completely turned upside down.  None of us are prepared for that, but the only way I can have a peace about it is to trust the God in heaven to help me through.  Whenever the time comes for my world to be turned upside I do hope I rely on God to give me the strength to endure it.
