I went back this past Tuesday to remove my stitch and the doctor had the results. He said "it's a horse about to leave the barn." Don'tcha love the description? Basically, it's not melanoma YET. So I have an appointment with another doctor next week to completely remove the invader from my hand. My doctor said he would rather someone else do it since it's in such a funky spot - right between my pinky and ring finger.
I can honestly tell you that I NEVER get sun exposure in that spot. It's not like I lay out in the sun with my fingers spread and pointed upward.
I have to give God some public praise right now because I had gone in for a totally different mole and if it wasn't for the doctor telling me a story about someone dying from melanoma I would have walked right out the door without him looking at this one. God works in the most mysterious ways and I so love the mystery of it all.
Even if it had been bad news it would be His will - not mine. I'm just thankful to Him that His will and mine were both the same this time. :)
Thanks for all your concern for me. :) I recently learned that it does help when we bear our burdens with one another. (Gal. 6:2)
