Nope, no sign of basal-cell recurrence here, and the dermatologist liked how the scar on my scalp was healing at my yearly checkup today.

Mentioning again in case someone out there needs to read it: my oldest had a highly aggressive melanoma diagnosed at 27 years old. They apparently caught it in the first two weeks and were able to operate it out of there without her having to go through chemo or radiation–speed and a doctor’s intuition about that mole six years ago saved her.

Get checked.

And then I went home and made an appointment for the next mammogram, as long as I was being all grownup about it.

It is a lot of work to stay healthy. Sheesh. Worth it, though.
