They Got it ....

My dad is very allergic to mosquitoes.... a few years ago while sitting on hit front porch - he smacked a mosquitoe.... a few months later he had a very small red bump come up...over the years it started to grow... A few weeks ago I made him a doctor appointment...Dr. Bonner informed us that he thought is was skin cancer - he had a biosopy on it and it did come back as skin cancer - we went to see Dr. Wood who explained everything he would do during the surgery.. what was suppose to have taken 15 minutes ended up being 55 minutes as it was alot deeper than he orignally thought.... daddy ended up with 19 stitches and will have quite the little scar ... they had to take a flap of his skin and form it to cover the hole... We just PRAISE GOD that Dr. Wood was able to get IT ALL. It was such a blessing to hear those words and to know once again just how our Heavenly Father hears and answers our prayers.

Teresa i am so glad to hear that they got all the cancer! Skin cancer can be so bad. I worry about my Dad. he has been in the sun all his life. He has had 2 or 3spots removed on his face. And the Dr. says that it was cancer, but they thought that they got it all. They did say that it could come back. Please check your loved ones for an wierd spots and if you see any don't wait get them to the dr. Here is another blog about Patty Potter Dutton's 19 yr old girl who has stage 4 skin cancer. it is a most uplifting story. it is a happy one about how GOD does work in our livies. anyway glad he is OK! love vickie http://lowdownslowdown.blogspot.com/2009/03/first-blog.html#comment-form
