Time For The Annual Skin Check!

 

Hello, my friends. Today I am off bright and early for my yearly skin check at the dermatologist. Almost two years ago, I had a Basal Cell Carcinoma removed from my face. I wrote a post about it HERE. Thankfully, the doctor removed it, and it has healed beautifully. Because of that, I now go yearly for a skin check by a dermatologist. I don't actually enjoy this experience and get a bit anxious before the appointment. Still, I remind myself that I am fortunate to be able to have a doctor check my skin and make sure everything is ok. And if not, then it can be taken care of. So far this year, I have had my annual physical by my PCP, my yearly eye exam, and after today, my dermatologist appointment. All that remains is my annual gynecology appointment and mammogram later this summer and the dentist in the fall. The joys of middle age, right??

Well, have a good Wednesday, whatever you are up to today. I hope to be home, showered, and on the couch visiting with you all later this afternoon. Thanks for visiting!

And because I have a thing about always having a photo in my posts, enjoy this one of Mocha looking very much like a Muppet.  : )

  2. It's good to check those appointments off the list...never ones to look forward to, but as you say, the "joys" of middle age! Maybe a trip to Starbucks this afternoon for a just-for-you treat?! Mary

  7. I went through that last year and the yearly eye exam. All the things we have to check. Just like a car. I think my check engine light just went on!

  10. You are one smart Cookie! Yep, taking care of yourself is so important. I've had my physical, mammo, and dentist already. And now I'm schedule for my colonoscopy - yuck! But I try to see the blessings in it all as well. I guess we're blessed to be middle aged, right? Lol
    I pray you have a glowing report. And that you have a blessed weekend and Easter ahead. 🙏 🐰

  11. I need to do ALL of those things too! I hope all of your appointments go well. I get terrible 'white coat' anxiety as well. My BP is always so high until after the appointment is over. I think worrying about it being high makes it higher!
