Good news, finally

The second sample had a "clean margin", so they went ahead and did the reconstructive surgery on my mother's cheek.  She's fretting a bit about the scar, but very glad it's over.  As far as I know, that's it:  no further treatment (except sunscreen and eternal vigilance) is needed.

My parents are chronic catastrophisers: the agitation that results from one of them piloting a car into the wrong lane has to be heard to be believed.  But in this case, my father bullied my mother into seeing a dermatologist about a certain dark mole, and was more than vindicated. 

I've been using sunscreen for years, but I'm going to be even more religious about putting it on from now on.

Thank you!

It's been a bit upsetting, like seeing into the future, imagining a time when she isn't here. My parents have been active and healthy to an almost improbable degree: even my father, who was diagnosed with coronary artery disease 20 years ago, has managed to avoid having even a first bypass.
