And once again life interrupted ........

Mom Kim here - please pardon any spelling errors

I am seeing through fog or as the doctor said-

increase in the chance of the cornea transplant 

rejecting.   Yes, began noticing a decrease in 

my vision the past day or so and by today, 

wasn't sure if the bandage contact was still in 

so my sis picked me up and off to the eye doc we

went.  The epithelial defect I had that WAS 

small - now much larger and there is an 

increase in cloudiness which is an indication 

of the transplant rejecting so off to my eye

specialist tomorrow to see what is the next 


Then I got the totally unexpected news - I have

a possible BASAL CELL CARCINOMA - right side of 

my nose, within maybe an eighth of an inch of 

the tear duct of my right eye (yesm the one 

with the problems).  I know the BCC is the most

common and least serious of the skin cancers (I 
have already had a melanoma removed from my 

right jawline)  It is the last fact and having 

both parents die from colon and lung cancer 

plus a maternal aunt die from breast cancer is 

the reason I worry about this. 

Anyway, the Beaglebratz HAD planned a nice 

Tasty Tuesday post but that will have to wait 

until next week (MAYBE late tomorrow). 

Anyway, my vision is telling me I need to stop

for now plus I have a bed that needs sheets on 

it and the Beaglebratz need out so guess I will 

top for now.  I really do hope this new problem

is shortlived and the Beaglebratz will be here 

tomorrow or Wednesday,  In the meantime, if you 

have not yet voted in the Dogs of Blogville 

Calendar Contest - please see our early morning 

post for today for all the details.

And most lastly - as always I hate asking for 

myself - would you please say a prayer for me?

Mom Kim

Oh, my Friend. I am so very sorry to read this news!! There is nothing wrong with seeking prayer for yourself, as you do need it. Plus encouragement. Hang in there. Watch out for self pity and Depression. They are not welcome!! ;op

We will be thinking of you. If there is anything we can do from here let us know. I have 'halos' in my right eye which is cataracts--and now money to fix it, no insurance. So I understand a lot of what you're going through (including basal cell carcinoma).
