The C Word

So, Mom's biopsy came back as cancerous.

The woman that called from the doctor's office said squamous cell carcinoma, I think. I didn't write it down. She did not say basil cell - I am clear about that. (Now there's a fun job, huh? Calling people to tell them they have cancer - awesome.)

Anyway, it's not melanoma and they can do the surgery at the office.

Involves scrapping. Yikes.

Can we just bypass all the little crappy bad things happening to her? Isn't losing her mind enough?

  2. I'm sorry to hear this. A friend's mother just went through that surgery, and I wish I could tell you it was a breeze. It wasn't, but I hope your mom's is and yes, losing the mind is enough. Not fair. Not fair one bit.
