During this decade of my life I have noticed a few

health issues popping up on a semi-regular basis.

The most recent was this sore on my arm

which would not heal. 

Even after a shave biopsy

(the pink area around the scab)

there were signs of its return inside two weeks. 

My GP said she would excise it for me,

Monday of last week. 






Some may find the next image upsetting.






So it was removed. 

At this stage stitches are still in place and will be

removed on Wednesday morning. 

Just hope all goes well from here on.

    • Thank you, Sue. Hopefully all is good with the current arm problem, however, I fear they may be a recurring problem to keep a eye on for the rest of my life. I’s rather frustrating as I have spent thirty summers in a woolshed from 0730 to 1730 five days a week. And now the medicos tell me the damage is done in the first fifteen years of life. A time of our lives when we were all struggling to work on a tan. There is a family I know who always wore long sleeves etc., into the sun and consequently had very little tan….if any. I wonder who is laughing now??
