Lisa had the sample taken for biopsy yesterday. The doctor was very encouraging, she believes it is basel (spelling?) cell and not the spreading kind. We will find out for sure in about a week when the results come back.
She is as red head, her skin is not as pale as a lot of redheads but she is pale. She has never been able to tan no matter how many hours she spent laying in the sun when she was younger. In the days before sunscreen, everyone used suntan lotion that was supposed to help you tan but most often ended up in a bad burn.
Anyway, the doctor said she can expect more of these spots and some may very well be the bad kind.
Now she has to always wear sunscreen when she leaves the house and a wide brimmed hat when she is going to be out in the sun for any length of time. She hates hats but I think she will look really good in one.
Thanks for the good thoughts and prayers for her.
