Molie molie molie molie..

What movie is that from, anyway?

SO.. last Tuesday I had a mole removed from my back. It had been bothering me for about 6 months now. It was occasionally itchy and kind of just gave me this dull "feeling" that I can't really describe. Since my new job health insurance kicked in on September 1st, I immediately made an appointment with my old dermatologist. I have so many moles on my body that I really look like a chocolate chip cookie. I visit the dermatologist regularly.

So I told him this mole had been bothering me. I tried to express to him without scaring myself with my words that it had been worrying me. He took a look at it and said it looked irritated, probably from my bra strap. To myself I thought.. ya except my bra doesn't go that far down my back. He sliced it off.

Today the doctor himself called me. He said that he looked at my stupid mole under the microscope and noticed several abnormal looking cells. He shipped it off to the lab where they double confirmed it for him. Yes there were abnormal cells in the stupid mole....... but they were not cancerous.


I recommend everyone try to avoid direct sun as much as possible. You may have noticed from my previous posts that I keep Maddie dressed in a sun-suit when she goes swimming. I even got a nice hot pink shirt for myself!

Please check out the website where I purchased them. The woman started the company in honor of her husband, whom she lost to skin cancer at a very young age.
