~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Johnny worked outside in sunny South Florida most of his life, and because of his exposure to the sun, he now has to be checked by a dermatologist every six months. Recently, he had to have a skin cancer removed from his back. It was done as an outpatient at the doctor's office. I went along with him and look what I spotted in the waiting room! A curio cabinet chock full of Blue Glass and Blue medicine tubes! I tell you, Blue is everywhere.



Johnny had his stitches removed this past Friday, and was told that the "margins were clear," which means that the doctor succeeded in removing all of the cancer. Hooray!

Happy Blue Monday!

Jim said...

Good news. I do like that glass cabinet.

Loui♥ said...

Hi Sally..
beautiful blues..
I totally understand what Johnny is experiencing..
being a Florida girl,
I too have to be checked frequently by my dermatologist..
had two removed in the past 6months..
one on my nose in the grove between cheek and nostril,
and the other in my hairline on the left temple.
both were tiny little things..
but the craters the left were nearly Quarter size!..
bottom line..
I heed the Dr's instructions,:
use heavy duty sunscreen..
and stay out of the sun for prolonged periods of time!
hugs..
Loui♥

Alexa said...

That's excellent news, Sally. I love the way you find blue everywhere (even when you obviously have other things on your mind)!

Riet said...

Good news Sally, congratulations. LOve all that blue. Happy blue MOnnday

Jeanne said...

Hi Sally, I had to link twice because the first one was blank. ??? Remove it if you care to.
I'm so glad Johnny's back has no more skin cancer. Bill has gone through the same thing several times. I had one removed from my nose. The sun is not our friend if we are in it very long.

Imagine a cabinet full of pretty blue where you were. Having your camera handy was very smart. Smile.

I am sorry I missed last Mon for posting. We were running the roads quite a bit and time got away from me. Missing you BM was a first.

Happy days to you and yours dear Sally.
Love, Jeanne

Luna Miranda said...

Hi Sally, I'm so happy to hear your good news for Johnny. I make sure to use plenty of sunscreen when in the sun, a hat or visor helps shade the face. You found some lovely blues to share this week. Thanks for hosting.

LV said...

I clearly understand what your Johnny went through. I have to go every 6 months as well. I inherited the skin cancers from my grandparents. I have been fortunate so far not to have any surgery. I have been in doctor's office most of the day is why I am late visiting. I had a bad allergy reaction.

Cathy said...

Very pretty ~ Praying for your Johnny, and that you are doing well.

a little of me said...
