Talk about Scary...

Recently Baby Girl said one of the moles on her back felt like it was poking her. So I took a look and um, didn’t like what I saw. See what I mean.


It took a week, but we got in to see the dermatologist. I felt so bad for Baby Girl on accounta she is so very, extremely modest and dermatologist look at you ALL over. Bless her heart. I getting there…

So Doctor wanted a biopsy, as I suspected she would. She was gonna do a slice of it and then went out the room, Baby Girl plied me question after question, I was calm and made light of the situation. She has hypochondriac genes, ya know IF she hears she may have blah blah symptoms she WILL. I did not lie, don’t do that to my kids and I got lucky she only asked about the procedure and not the what it means stuff. Okay so Baby Girl is familiar with biopsies she just didn’t make the connection.

Doctor comes back in the room, appears she had a change of heart and decided to do a core punch. Meaning she would take the whole mole. Okay that’s good then we don’t have to worry about keeping an eye on it and we could just get on with whatever was to come of it.

Baby Girl did very well with the procedure and was proud of herself and this - her first ever surgery and first every stitches. It didn’t hurt.


And now the results, ha your waiting was nothing like mine; think chest pains and if possible I got tons more gray hair. Normal. Did you hear that? The results are it was a normal ugly mole. Just keep an eye on the one on her upper outside thigh.

We always have choices about how to receive and respond to information we are given. It is always possible to view all news as a blessing in disguise. Its amazing how many people are being diagnosed with cancer. Some people ignore the news or view the unfolding experience as a state in a much deeper healing process. Other people nurture fear and would prefer to escape.

The energetic imbalance detectable in dis-ease offers information for reflection. Some people experience illness as an external reason for suffering. Other people view illness as a symptom of dis-aligned vibration, as something than can be healed and in some sense, already is.

As it happens, my mom recently moved into a hospiltal palliative care ward. One view is her metasticized cancer is a stepping stone to re-emergence into non-physical existence. She does not see through the nature of her own resistence or that surrender can be a very upliftng thing.

Good news all around! That's what I love hearing! I have a disgusting mole on my back that I need to have removed but I just haven't made it there yet and it's been there all my life. After my last surgery I told myself the next one I'd make sure they'd remove it as well! Yuck!

Linda said...

Whew! You had me on edge. Yes, prayer and good thoughts make the world a much better place. And yay for dear hubbers, too! Peace...
