He has had this mole on his back forever. Right about the time he got sick 2 1/2 years ago it started changing. Every doctor would see it when they would listen to his heart and lungs and they all, including the doctors at Mayo, said it looks benign but when you have a chance get it checked out. Well, with all of the other health things going on, and my false sense of security with all of them saying it looked fine, we waited. Within the past two months it started growing so we scheduled an appointment with a dermatologist that specialized in skin cancer. We just got the call today. He has to stop taking his blood thinners three days before he has Mohs surgery. They will remove the visible cancer and apply pressure dressing to the wound. They then map what has been removed and check for remaining cancer. If there is still cancer they remove it and again check. This is repeated until all skin removed is cancer free. They then do surgery to repair the site. His surgery is scheduled for May 25. If you have a moment to send a good thought or prayer I would really appreciate it.
