My pledge to help keep others from a preventable death would mean nothing if I didn't also do it for myself. So first thing Monday morning I headed to the Dr. for a head to toe physical with special attention on my fondly nicknamed "Izzie spots".(I miss her already guys!)
For those who don't know what I'm talking about, A few months ago I got some salmon colored spots on my abdomen. I'm not going to lie, skin cancer was on my mind. I mean. I'm not a tanner but I've had some major burns in my time. And I've been scared to have them checked out. Nobody wants to get bad news, but bad news later might have been devastating news.
Well at first the Dr was a little concerned. After careful examination it was determined that I have Pityriasis Rosea. In lamens terms this means "your skin changed color for no good reason and will return to normal in a few months." So in the mean time I look like a leper but I'm healthy!
All other reports were good. He's slightly concerned I might have a galbladder problem but with the problems Amber had I told him I don't want to persue anything until I feel like it's a problem. He was ok with that. Also, it turns out I'm almost 5'4'' which is freakin awesome! LOL I guess I never really knew how tall I was.
Well now I need to go plant shopping with Grandma B. Love you guys!
