The Cowboy survived his MOHS surgeries on Tuesday. The skin cancer spot on his nose only took one slice; the one below his lower lip took three slices. MOHS surgery was developed in the 1930’s by a general surgeon, Frederic E. Mohs, but it wasn’t until the 1970’s that MOHS surgery became the leading treatment for skin cancers. During the surgery, after each removal of tissue and while the patient waits, the tissue is examined for cancer cells. There is a lot of waiting involved, the actual procedure probably only took 15-30 minutes but the wait while each tissue slice is examined may take up to 30 minutes, more if the clinic is busy. We were in and out in about two hours. When Nat was having all those MOHS procedures I can remember them taking all day long! The Cowboy looks as if he’s been in a fist fight and is sore but not in pain.
Kathy stayed with Princess Emmi again and they seem to be getting along well. Kathy makes sure to have plenty of treats for Emmi and she plays outside with her a lot–what’s not to like!
Monday the Cowboy worked on the truck camper most of the day and now has the slide working well. Soon it will be my turn to clean–have we ever purchased a clean RV????? Monday afternoon I ran to town for errands–dog food (geez Princess Emmi is expensive), banking, etc.
We have a fire between us and Big Timber–no particulars as of yet but we could see the smoke when coming home from Bozeman Wednesday afternoon. Every afternoon we have thunder, lightening and a bit of rain. I’m surprised a fire hasn’t started before now!
Well, I was wordy in the last blog, this one is shorter! Hard to believe tomorrow is the first day of August.
