John's Skin Cancer
My husband, John, had a skin cancer and had to have it removed. After being told that it would be a small incision, with only a stitch or two, he came home with a 3 inch cut and 15 stitches!
Needless to say, it was bigger and deeper than originally thought. It is healing up nicely and his neck is not pulling as bad, with the skin being stretch so. He can now move his head to the side without too much discomfort.
He is wearing his new protective hat that we got for him for Father's Day. We got it from Coolibar, a neat site that is approved by the National Skin Cancer Association. It is comfortable and good quality.
So, now I am all conscious about being in the sun. I used to lay out all the time, but rarely get in the sun these days. I tan easily, so I sport a farmers tan for a good part of the year. Nice, huh?
We should all be wearing our sunscreen these days, don't you think?
