New Derm & Port Removal

I went and saw a new dermatologist on Monday.  I found them on a friend's facebook page and then found out that Todd is working on their website - is that a sign or what!  Anyway, I really like her.  She is much more thorough than my other derm.  The new derm uses a "magnifying glass" and looked at every mole. I had 3 I wanted her to take a look at and we removed those.  She also diagramed them and took pictures of 9, 7 of which we will watch.  I'm going back in 2 weeks to have 2 more removed.  I'm not worried about those we have removed or the 2 we will remove.  I guess I am at peace and feel that no matter what I'll be fine.

My nurse called to tell me that she scheduled my port to be removed Wednesday, April 20th! I can't wait!  It'll be outpatient at Scottsdale Shea Hospital at 9:30am.  I will not be put under, but will not be able to drive home. Claudia got up before the sun rose to drive me down to Tucson for the port placement and she'll be there with me for the removal.  How awesome is that! Thanks SO much my friend!
