reminders and memories

 This weekend I put the finishing touches on a 4th song. I was even able to put most of the chords for the melody on it! My friend Hank finished the one part where I still struggled with them. As with 2 of the other songs there is a mention of the "lonely" time. Yet it also tells of swaying on a porch swing,  playing music on my ukulele, singing and having the dog there. Had to put Emme in it and the mention of lost love. Yup, it's a country song. lol 

Then yesterday the dermatologist called with a couple of biopsy results. Every year I get checked as I had some basal cell years ago. I usually point out stuff and she either takes a biopsy or says it's nothing. Biopsies have always come back benign. This time she caught what I didn't. One on my leg and another on my forehead. Both are basal cell buggers. Next week I go for the removal of the one on my leg but I have to see a specialist for the forehead because they don't know how much area yet will be removed. All the years of sun loving catching up to this fair skin!

The surgeon they are sending me to is the same one Phil saw for the melanoma I found on his shoulder back in 2005. At the time the dr told him "your wife saved your life finding it this quickly"  I sure wish I had ben able to do that with the esophageal cancer!!

Whenever I have had to get some procedure done over the years I always looked forward to Phil making me a special cup of tea afterwards. He would load it with sugar and cream (and must have been love too)and it would just hit the spot. I will so miss that. No one makes it like he did. Everyone please do skin check ups on yourselves.  Irene

Irene--

I love that you write songs! I play with words. I can relate to missing your cup of tea made by Phil! I just had major back surgery in April and was in the hospital for a month. Every time I would come home from the hospital, Chuck would make me a cup of coffee. I always wanted one first thing after all the bad hospital coffee. I still got a cup of coffee when I came home this time, only my friend Renee made it for me. Thoughtful, and I thanked her profusely, but not the same. I'm sure your "Phil" tea and my "Chuck" coffee were both loaded with love and gladness that we were home safe and sound!

I'm sorry to hear you have basel cell. I'm glad to hear you caught it early and it should be a fairly easy removal. I'll keep you in my prayers!

So sorry you have basel cell but good you are taking care of yourself. I know it is so heartwrenching not having our spouse by our side to go through these procedures and taking good care of us. Their special gifts of love, like having your cup of tea. very special. keep us updated on how you are doing.
