A year ago today, my dermatologist called and diagnosed me with stage 1 melanoma.
The freckle she originally biopsied was 5mm and the incision for removal was 4 inches wide & deep enough for internal stitches.
I am thankful for how God has moved in my life throughout it all. His glory shines through our weaknesses. Couldn’t have made it without Jesus!
I have another 3-month skin check next week! I am continuing to pray that God uses my journey to glorify him. Being 24 weeks pregnant, I am praying for a non-eventful, non-stressful skin check. Since I am pregnant and will nurse again, I will continue to see the dermatologist for a skin check every 3 months. Hormones affect everything in our body and so sticking to the 3-month protocol is my dermatologist’s recommendation.
Here is what it looks like today… the larger scar is from a year ago and the small, round scar next to it is from January.
