If you remember, back in May I had surgery for skin cancer. Basal Cell Carcinoma to be exact. While it usually is a slow growing and non-deadly (if taken care of) cancer, it still sucked to go through the whole surgery and recovery process. Call me vain but it was unusually hard for me since it was 1. On my nose and 2. Months before my wedding. Eeeeek!
Anyways, Sometime after surgery while I was being told how great I did I patted my face and said "Good Job Face!" and that phrase has stuck throughout the months that followed. I was looking in the mirror at how great it was recovering this weekend and took a photo. I realized that I had quite a few photos documenting this recovery so I thought I would share them with you all as a reminder to ALWAYS take good care of your body and health! Please please get check ups, use sunscreen and stay away from tanning beds! (I am rocking the spray tan for all wedding related events!)
While I was at home for my Bridal shower, I learned that not only had I gone through this but BOTH my 2 Aunts had as well. One last year (thanks for telling me family) and one just a few months after me. We all had matching scars on our noses and were comparing stories.
Stay Healthy everyone!
